Memorial Day is a day to honor servicemen and women who died while actively serving in the United States Military. The holiday has also become what many people consider to be the unofficial start of summer. With that being the case, what better time is there to start planning all the fun you’re going to have this summer?

If you live near our Porsche dealership in Jacksonville, FL, you don’t have to take a long road trip or jump on a plane to have an enriching experience this summer. The Palm Coast area is only about an hour away, and it’s home to attractions you can enjoy during a day trip or over a long weekend.

Motorists looking for a laid-back spot to visit should pencil in a trip to the Flagler Beach Farmer’s Market in their agenda. This market is open on Fridays and Saturdays from 7 am until late afternoon.

The Flagler Surf Art & Stuff shop is open on Thursdays and Fridays, and it’s a great place to visit on a Friday after you stop by the farmer’s market. This eclectic shop is where you can find pieces made by local artists and craftspeople. It’s also where the “Please don’t make me cross the bridge!” t-shirt originated from.

If you’d rather get in touch with your inner self, you should make your way over to the Washington Oaks Gardens State Park. A plantation back in the day, this park has a view of the Matanzas River along with plenty of oak trees, roses, and other plant life.

Drivers looking for a versatile vehicle to drive everywhere they plan to visit this summer should take a look at the roomy 2019 Porsche Cayenne. Visit Porsche Jacksonville to test drive a new Porsche Cayenne today.
