Jacksonville, Florida: Atlantic Beaches, Riverside Attractions, and Old Southern Charm
Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and divided by the St. Johns River, Jacksonville is a natural playground for water recreation. Oceanfront beaches stretch for more than 20 miles, frequented by kiteboarders and surfers. For a relaxing hike or bike ride, head to one of many nearby state parks, from the sand dunes at Little Talbot Island State Park to the salt marshes at Fort Clinch State Park.
At the Jacksonville Landing shopping complex, restaurants ranging from quick Cajun-style eateries to upscale Italian fine dining overlook St. Johns River. Walk across the bright-blue Main Street Bridge to Southbank to see Friendship Fountain, which puts on a dazzling light show at night. On rainy days or for a reprieve from the beach, check out the Museum of Science & History, where you can meet turtles, snakes, and owls at the Florida Naturalist’s Center.
