Hotel Listing:
Our studios are in two different locations. San Marco is close to downtown Jacksonville & our Beach studio is about 20 mins away on the beach (Neptune Beach) which is about 5 miles from Jacksonville Beach. We suggest staying close to either or inbetween on State Rd 202 (JTB Hwy) which runs between the two locations (this is probably the cheapest option).

For discount reservations and info about hotels in the area, please contact our travel agent. We do have group rates for this workshop.
