Great article.  I went to college in Philadelphia (approx 2hrs from the inner harbor) and lived there from 1990-1997.  Groups of us went down there at least twice a year to do random things (aquarium, science museum, ft. McHenry, or just go drinking etc).  I couldn't imagine someone from daytona coming to DT Jax to hang out... ever.  It really is too bad our leaders can't figure this out.
