100 Things to Do in Jacksonville, Florida

100 Things to Do in Jacksonville Florida

Jacksonville, Florida has been home to WC for most of his life and I’ve lived here since 2013. We love living in the “Bold City” and it’s a great home base for traveling. We’re near an international airport, have access to a cruise port, and we’re not a far drive from a lot of fun Southern cities!

Whether you live in Jacksonville or just enjoy visiting, there is no shortage of things to do here. With the help of friends, we’ve put together a bucket list of 100 things to do in Jacksonville (and nearby).

How many of these have you done?  Think we should add something?
