If you are looking for an adventure in stepping back in time and learning about the past, make sure to take the family to the historic town of Jacksonville. Historic Jacksonville is about a 48 mile drive from Lakewoods Village. Jacksonville is a preserved history gold rush town that looks much like it did around the turn of the 20th Century. Jacksonville boasts beautiful shopping with a turn of the century feel. Jacksonville is also home to the Britt Festival (http://www.brittfest.org), which is home to summer outdoor performances by many of today’s top musical acts.
