Day Trips From Jacksonville

Florida is home to many fantastic destination day trips that are perfect for a fun-filled day out for the entire family. From exploring the everglades to visiting theme parks, there is something for everyone.

If you’re looking for a nature-filled adventure, consider visiting the stunning formal gardens and beachfront of the Washington Oaks Garden State Park. For those who want a taste of exploration, a visit to the charming Jekyll Island may be in store.

And, of course, no trip to Florida would be complete without visiting a waterpark for the thrilling rides and attractions.

So load up the car, pack some snacks and sunscreen, and get ready for a day trip full of excitement and unforgettable memories.
