Thanks for putting a Home Town weekly scoop out! I’m a part of a multi-generation family of locals and FirstCoast.Life feels just like that.

Good quality, inspirational and entertaining. Great job empowering folks that have steeped in our beaches! Worked, lived, and loved all that Jacksonville has to offer. See you all out and about!!
