    Prices were different online than in person. Some of the exhibits were temporarily closed. Sales tickets personal was not the friendliest. There was only one restaurant open. There was a good variety of in animals that were in good habitat. There was a baby gorilla and a baby eastern bongo. The staff member at the alligators and the giraffes were friendly and very knowledgeable.

    The tour telling us about each cat, how they give them boxes with hiden treats, and the different smells they like.

    Despite its relatively small size, Cummer is probably the best Art Museum in Florida. It has an amazing collection of paintings and other art, well-organized and explained, and extends it with nice small temporary exhibitions. Excellent location, easy parking, beautiful gardens, good museum store, and good cafe with outdoor sitting. This museum has it all. Looking forward to visiting it again in a year.

    The best nature walk in the area…incredible two miles through the dunes, then a gorgeous trek down the unspoiled beach…

    Lovely beach and boneyard trees where you could really just sit and contemplate life. We were the only people there the entire time we were there, but that might be because it was drizzling with rain. Really enjoyed the solitude.

    I love it at the hanna park location due to the fact that they are good at keeping it clean and good place for you to be able to cool off

    What an experience! This is an eye-opening glimpse into a world I never could have imagined. It’s a small trek to get there (in a low car and a few potholes), but SO totally worth it. We popped in our own AirPods and accessed the stories via the National Park’s website and spent almost 2 hours touring through the words of both a narrator and various actors portraying the experiences of the different people who lived on this once vibrant plantation. The stories really just brought everything to life and made everything so real. The park service people there were awesome-friendly and approachable and very knowledgeable about their history. If you’re even partially interested, check this place out!

    They have cleaned the place up a lot. It still needs more $'s and some upgrades, but it was a nice place.

    Any visitors who are quick to pass judgement on Jacksonville based on its underutilized and relatively quiet downtown need to go to St. Johns Town Center on the city's Southside and get a second opinion. Here they will find the vibrant, bustling "Main Street" style shopping and dining nexus they would expect to find in one of America's fastest growing, hottest markets. Encompassing a major swath of real estate near the I-295/Butler Blvd. interchange in the heart of Jacksonville's busiest area of town, St. Johns Town Center is where shoppers can stroll for blocks past swanky high-end and name-brand retailers like Tiffany & Co., Louis Vuitton, Nordstrom, Restoration Hardware, Lego, Tommy Bahama, Tesla, Apple, and others. For meals, one can dine at destination restaurants like Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, P.F. Chang's, Maggiano's, J. Alexander's, Ted's Montana Grill, Bahama Breeze, and others. The pedestrian-oriented complex is also surrounded by additional family chain & fast food restaurants; big box retailers; attractions like Topgolf, iFLY, and The Escape Game; and a few hotels.

    A nice museum primarily for the children. Many interactive and hands on exhibits.
    As an adult I found the "Currents of Time" exhibit to be the best part. It is a trip through time for Northern Florida and Jacksonville. A walk throu history of the area from the first natives up until modern times. They have an outdoor pond and native plant exhibit. The planetarium and seasonal exhibits are at an extra cost. Parking is limited but free.

    Nicely preserved national park site which is the location of the first French settlement in the land that would later become the United States of America. Watch the film at the Visitor center. Very well done and informative...

    Something for everyone! Such a fun way to spend a few hours. An amazing variety of artisan, farmers, food trucks, and more! Very family n dog friendly. Live music is nice but loud to hear the vendors especially the closer you get to the amphitheater area. Fun!!

    Unique in that it had cabanas and a pool on the top level. Unusual in that a giant TV directly beside the jumbo tron is showing another team's game while the home team is playing. Seemed disrespectful to the teams actually playing in the stadium.

    This is a wonderful park with some great camping. We stayed at site 47 which is towards the back and on the St. John's River directly across from the Navy base (in a tent). It was beautiful. A couple of things to note:

    1. It looks like they have renumbered the sites, so I would be careful when booking to make sure you're looking at an updated map.

    2. There is no water at the campsites. In fact, the only place that had potable water was up near the bath houses. If I were to do it over, I would have brought a giant jug that we could have filled and kept at the site for washing dishes, brushing teeth, etc.

    3. They are currently laying huge rocks all along the beach that runs along the St. John's River. They are beautiful but it's important to note that you won't be able to walk down to the water from your site. With that said, there is water everywhere. There's a beautiful bay on the opposite side of the campground perfect for paddle boarding or kayaking and the beach on the Atlantic is only about a 5 minute walk from your campsite.

    All in all this place was wonderful and I would definitely go back.

    I dined and shopped in this area for two nights in early June. The restaurants were great with friendly bartenders and delicious food. I enjoyed breakfast and coffee at Southern Grounds, the eggs Benedict with cheesy grits was delicious!
