If you’re like most moms in addition to being a chauffeur, chef, tutor, and house cleaner you are a planner. And since making sure your kids are entertained is part of your job description you probably like to get a jump on activities early. Thankfully Jacksonville Mom has done some of the leg work for you so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the fun with your family with our things to do guide.

Whether you’re looking for a solo activity or something to do with the entire family, there are plenty of options to choose from right here in Jacksonville. Maybe you’re in the mood to explore the great outdoors and go for a hike or try your hand at blueberry picking and we can’t leave out a family golf outing!

Of course we can’t forget the tried and true fun in the sun activity – pools and splash pads. Maybe indoor fun in more your speed, like grabbing an amazing brunch at a favorite local spot.

Whatever you choose to do, make sure it’s something that brings you joy and helps you relax and recharge!
