Day Trip Ideas for Jacksonville, FL

Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens

The zoo is an especially good idea if you have a few monkeys (aka kids) of your own. This 117 acre zoo is home to more than 2,000 animals and over 1,000 plants. The zoo features a walking safari and seeks to encourage future generations to care for the earth and its wildlife.

Amelia Island

If you drive your rental car around 30 miles NE of downtown Jacksonville you can visit Amelia Island. Traffic can be rough, so we recommend making a day of it as opposed to trying to squeeze it into an already busy day.

Visitors can relax and lay out on a beach towel, visit the Amelia Island Museum of History, look for local wildlife—alligators, horses, etc.—hike, or take a waterway cruise. Amelia Island features many different beaches to enjoy, so don’t forget your sunblock.

Visiting the island is free, but individual attractions may have admission fees.
