Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary

Calling all cat lovers! This wildlife sanctuary provides a forever home for endangered wild cats and educates visitors on the cat’s lives in and out of captivity. The Sanctuary does not breed, sell or buy any of its residents, it is purely a safe haven for rescued cats. Trip Advisor ranks Catty Shack as Jacksonville’s number one attraction!

The Florida Theatre

The Florida Theatre is a must stop for all entertainment gurus. The theatre runs 200 events ranging from concerts, ballet, opera, and more to fit the taste of all ages. See performers like Sarah McLachlan, comedians like George Lopez, dance competitions like the Dance Battle Tour, and more!

TIAA Bank Field

Get ready to rumble! TIAA Bank Field is home to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Watch the home team tackle its toughest NFL competitors, grab a hot dog and soda, and cheer the team on to victory! Not only does the field host the Jaguars, it’s also a fantastic concert venue.

Little Talbot Island State Park

Little Talbot Island is one of very few undeveloped beaches that stretches more than five miles. Explore the park by hiking or biking and enjoy the serene white sands, rumbling waves, and the cedar and palm trees. You will be in awe by the beauty of this untouched island.
