Fun things to do in jacksonville

If your kids love the outdoors, then your kids will LOVE Jacksonville! White sandy beaches to play on, untouched state parks and nature reserves to get lost in, and many water activities to be had - and all very much teeming with kids fun. Perfect!

Sail right into Shipwreck Island at Adventure Landing, which happens to be once of Jacksonville’s only water park.  Kids can get up close to wildlife at Tree Hill Nature Center and Jacksonville Zoo. 

Active kids can try their hands at skateboarding at Kona Skateboard Park - the oldest outdoor privately owned skate park in the country, or hit the ice at Jacksonville Ice & Sportsplex!

Of course, Jacksonville isn’t all outdoors and adventure. They have fun and educational museums like the Museum of Science and History, Hands-On Childrens Museum and Jacksonville Maritime Heritage Center to ensure kids of all interests will have a great time!

Finally, just one very important note to end on…don’t forget your swimmers and have a great time!  The city really does have some great places to visit!
