Looks great. Too bad we do not still have all of our historic buildings. I wonder how possible it would be to recreate a historic building for Jacksonville.

Great tour.  I'm am thoroughly suprised by Augusta's core.  I've never been there and always had the inplression that there wasn't much to it at all.  I'll definitely have to check it out.

I really like their riverwalk system.  Although its more of a "nature" walk  and Jax's is more of an "urban" walk, we can still apply some of the ideas here.
