Because of the sheer physical size of Jacksonville, Florida you should rent a car once you arrive. One of the first things to do in Jacksonville is visit the Jacksonville Museum of Science and History
. Nicknamed the “MOSH”, this museum strives to increase the knowledge of the natural environment and history of Jacksonville and Northeast Florida through live animal exhibits, hands-on interactive displays, and historical artifacts. A trip to Jacksonville would not be complete without a cruise down St. Johns River. Come aboard the Jacksonville Princess
for a sunset dinner or Sunday brunch cruise.
and Metropolitan Park
are just a couple sights around town that you won’t want to miss. Jacksonville Landing boasts some of the grandest shopping, dining, and entertainment in the city. Metropolitan Park, on the hand, is a mecca for civic events and festivals. Hosting the famous Jacksonville Jazz Festival each fall and Independence Day fireworks, this park by the river is fun for the whole family.
