Given the opportunity to participate in a recent missionary trip flight out of Craig Airport, Metro Jacksonville's Ennis Davis shares views of Jacksonville's Southside and a few other places from 3,000 feet above.


Lake Apopka is the third largest lake in Florida. Fed by a natural spring, rainfall and stormwater runoff, water from Lake Apopka flows through the Apopka-Beauclair Canal and into Lakes Beauclair and Dora. From Lake Dora, water flows into Lake Eustis, then into Lake Griffin and then northward into the Ocklawaha River, which flows into the St. Johns River.


In Apopka, construction is underway on the extension of the John Land Apopka Expressway and the Daniel Webster Western Beltway.  This project will tie into the controversial Wekiva Parkway project, forming a beltway around Orlando.

World Golf Village.


Midway between Jacksonville and St. Augustine, World Golf Village is a 6,300 acre community envisioned to eventually have 18,000 residents.  It is also home to the World Golf Hall of Fame, which is intended to be the ultimate golf destination for players and fans of the game.
