This was a great little trip my friend and I went on. It is about an hour outside of Orange Park and is located just outside of Amelia Island. It is10 miles round trip from start to finish, and the end of the trail has a nice walk on beach. Just remember that to get to the bike trail, you do have about 1/4 of a mile on A1A, and the bike lanes are either really small or don't exist at all. And the cars in the area are not mindful of you, so you must be of them. I will for sure be going back with my husband in toe.

What You'll Get

With our country's once widespread network of interconnecting moats largely replaced by interstate systems and zip lines, traveling by water is often overlooked. Rediscover America's aqua-portation roots with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a two-hour standup-paddleboard lesson at Kayak Amelia, located in Talbot Islands State Park (a $50 value).

The highly trained water wizards at Kayak Amelia instruct landwalkers in the art of standup paddleboarding with two-hour lessons held on serene waterscapes. After equipping students with paddles, mermaid repellant, and extra-long, 12-foot boards designed for easy balancing and navigation, aqua gurus orient and instruct participants on land before pushing off into the calm waters of the Huguenot Park Lagoon. Once pupils acquire fashionable sea legs, they'll tour the surrounding waters, learning of the local ecology from their guides and stopping along the way to sidle up to sandbars and beaches. Instructors help refuel tired bodies by handing out complimentary Kayak Amelia cookies, great for biceps that run on baked goods. No experience is required, and paddleboarding is suitable for all adventurers ages 12 and up.
