For the yearly Georgia-Florida game, probably the No. 1 thing for Bulldogs fans to do is to stay near the areas of St. Simons Island or Jekyll Island.

Another favorite past-time of fans is – or was — to hang out after the game at the Jacksonville Landing. It’s a festival marketplace in downtown Jacksonville that opened in 1987.

It looks like it’s time to say farewell to the Jacksonville Landing.

On Tuesday night, the Jacksonville City Council voted 15-1 on Tuesday to approve an $18-million deal that sets the stage for the city to demolish the Landing, per news4jax.com's Jim Piggott.

Council members valued the Landing as a “downtown landmark,” but more called it a “failed venture after early success in the late 1980s,” per the website.

Will the Landing exist for the 2019 Georgia-Florida game? There’s a chance, with mayor’s office estimating that it will be obliterated within “four to six months.”
