This astonishing (and free) historic site on Fort George Island can be explored solo, but the informative audio tour is the way to go if you really want to get the most out of the experience. It only takes about an hour, and by the end, you'll be well-versed in the history of Zephaniah Kingsley and other fascinating 19th-century stories.

A smash hit with all its visitors, Little Talbot Island State Park borders a marsh as well as a phenomenally kept beach among other well-kept areas. The campgrounds are a fan favorite due to the immediate access to such vibrant vegetation. The peaceful setting is said to be one the cleanest campgrounds found anywhere, almost as if man never settled it. The sandy beach includes starfish, horseshoe crabs and sharks when looking out into the water. A great location for bike rides or walks with relatives or friends; Little Talbot Island State Park is picturesque enough for a wedding or any important event that needs a great background to enhance the experience. The spacious park is said to be a little off the path, but this quaintness only adds to the ambiance. A small $5 fee is well worth the access to countless picnic tables and grilling areas making it ideal for a camping destination.

We wouldn’t want Little Talbot to get lonely, luckily Big Talbot Island State Park is there for those who may feel a little closed off by the trees of the smaller setting. Big Talbot will have visitors believing they just discovered America with the vast, seemingly unexplored grassland. At a steal of just three dollars, visit in the summer months for the chance to see various species of birds throughout the park. Beautiful white pelicans, herons and wood storks should not be disturbed in this open space. Simply walk along the beach to get a first-hand look at species of birds rarely seen by urban residents. Virtually untouched, Boneyard Beach receives great reviews from those looking for a place to walk and reflect. It is no wonder it is ranked as one of the top attractions in all of Jacksonville. Consider a picnic, bike or fish, but unfortunately no overnight stays are permitted.

Adjacent to Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, Veterans Memorial Wall is a quarter-million dollar monument that was dedicated to more than 1,500 war heroes in 1995. It is 65 feet long and made of black granite. Veterans from World War 1 all the way through to Operation Desert Storm and current middle-eastern conflicts are honored here. An eternal flame stands in the front of the monument, where Jacksonville’s Memorial Day Ceremony takes place. At the ceremony, any fallen soldiers from the year past are honored by having their names added to the site. Since the monuments completion, tremendous measures were made to ensure its preservation when the destruction of the nearby Veterans Memorial Coliseum took place. This type of respect and dedication is the only reason needed to stop by this monument while en route to anywhere, really. Sadly, in 2005 additional panels were added to provide space for names of those lost in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Jacksonville Museum of Science and History (or MOSH as the kids say) is full of unique and state-of-the-art exhibits. MOSH contains a rotation of traveling exhibits such as Shipwreck, which has over 500 artifacts excavated from famous shipwrecks through time. Space and energy-centric exhibits dominate the core attractions along with local history. At prices between six and 10 dollars it is easy to see why so many are attracted to the wide-array of knowledge that MOSH provides. Year-round camps and Boy & Girl Scout workshops ensure that the kids will be interacting socially and learning at the same time. Local artists also have their works circled through the museum, providing local exposure to some of the areas better talents. Perhaps the most intrusive exhibit ever is “The Body Within”, where visitors walk in through a giant open mouth and exit through the digestive track of the human body.

The recently remodeled Friendship Fountain should find its way onto everyone’s list of things to see when in Jacksonville. Situated on the St. Johns River, it beautifully overlooks the water from across the Jacksonville Landing. This site is a photographer’s dream when the sun is ready to set or rise. The Main Street Bridge acts as a perfect background for the colorful display of water fountains to which the site gets its name. As there is seemingly no way to be angry when taking in this scenery, this is indeed a good spot to reflect by one’s self or with a partner. The tranquility and feeling of calm is rare in such a location that can be compared to a cleaner, friendlier setting than looking across from the other side of the Brooklyn Bridge. Of course, the lack of noise is a contributing factor to this location’s aura as well.

The home of the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team since 1995 has undergone a whole lot of changes since it broke ground. At a cost of $121 million it is relatively cheap for an NFL stadium but that does not take away from the energy that can’t be found anywhere else in Jacksonville. The stadium was opened on the site of the old Gator Bowl Stadium that had been around since 1949. It still includes portions of the old stadium on the four hectares of land next to the St. Johns River. With an original capacity of 73,000, expansions in the last decade have raised the seat total to just under 77,000 (about 10,000 seats more than the NFL minimum). The stadium hosted Super Bowl XXXIX in 2005, not to mention the countless other college football games and concerts. There is no atmosphere quite like an NFL football game in America, so this is a highly suggested spot for those who won’t necessarily get frequent chances to attend a game.

This wildlife sanctuary is the home of many exotic cats that are rescued and taken care of on the location. Cougars, leopards, bobcats and foxes are just some of the species in the habitat. Additionally, 25 Siberian tigers (the majority of which are adorable cubs) are kept here along with a select few African lions. Although it has been open for 30 years the Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary became accredited to be open to the public in 2004. A medical facility on the property lends assistance to the care of the animals with a group of dedicated veterinarians and even dentists. Cat lovers are encouraged to participate in the adoption program; donations made to the sanctuary provide direct funding to the animals by way of food and medical care. The mantra of the facility is to educate children on the dangers of owning or attempting to domesticate wild cats, so it is safe to say Mike Tyson likely did not visit here as a youth.
