Whether you’re planning a day trip to the city of Jacksonville or an all-out vacation adventure, you’re getting ready to see what the city has to offer. Everyone enjoys different activities, but hopefully the four I have picked out for you will be things that you like to do. Even if one of them makes your list of places to stop by when traveling Jacksonville, that will be great.
Located at 4110 Gator Bowl Drive is Metropolitan Park. This park is known for being host to the Rockville Music Festival. This is a nice area to check out when you’re looking for a place to stay in Jacksonville, too, seeing as how the Renaissance Hotel is nearby. The Rockville Music Festival isn’t the only event held there. You will want to look at the event schedule to see what you can check out at Metropolitan Park when you make it by there.
Hugenot Memorial Park is is located at 10980 Heckscher Drive in Jacksonville. If you enjoy swimming and fishing, this is the place to be. People talk about walking the jetty and checking out the Navy ships. You’re talking about an amazing beach, well-maintained, and it gets pretty crowded during the summer, too. Take in the views of the ocean, go for a walk, dig for shark teeth and more.
If you like to visit breweries, Intuition Ale Works is one of the places you might want to stop by. Located at 929 E Bay Street, this brewery is also a great place to enjoy a nice lunch. If you want some recommendations, reviews point to the shrimp po boy, nachos and burgers, to name a few items. Plus people say that you are going to enjoy the tour for sure.
It’s always nice when a brewery features a nice tour, and it’s not just about tasting what they have to offer, right? The Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville is on North Laura Street is the next place of interest. The lobby is beautiful, the exhibits many, and there is a gift shop and restaurant as well. If you like contemporary art, this is a place to visit for sure.
Enjoy your visit to a brewery, the contemporary arts museum, the beach and the park. Hopefully there is a great concert scheduled at the memorial park when you show up in Jacksonville. Either way, stopping by these four attractions is going to find you having a good time.
