As you contemplate big life changes, like moving or buying a house, you consider the impact on the entire family. When you have children, a lot changes – and looking at houses may take a different approach with little ones than if your kids are grown or not yet born. When you seek a new home, you want to be sure there are good schools and plenty of activities for your kids to do in the area. If you’re looking at Cedar Bay homes or other areas in Jacksonville, here are several activities and places you can plan some fun family days.
Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens: The zoo has 2,000 animals and the gardens feature more than 1,000 types of plants, so everyone can learn about plants and animals from around the world. Take a ride on the zoo’s train, ride the carousel and feed the giraffes at Giraffe Lookout.
Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park: The oceanfront park has miles of hiking trails, over a mile of beach, a splash park for kids and a lake for family kayaking or fishing. You can even camp if your family wants a night or two away from everyday life.
Museum of Science & History: Everyone can have fun and learn something new at the museum in downtown. With the area’s only planetarium, learn about space and the stars. Learn about the human body or visit the lagoon area to see a giant snapping turtle. With hands-on learning opportunities, your kids will be excited to soak up the new knowledge.
Adventure Landing: This adventure park is at Jacksonville Beach and has enough activities you can spend an entire day here. Go karts, mini golf, laser tag and an arcade make for fun for the entire family, and when the weather is warm, be sure to check out the Shipwreck Island waterpark where everyone can enjoy time on the lazy river and waterslides.
Jacksonville Beach: Even with so many great attractions, you don’t have to spend money to have fun. Jacksonville Beach allows your family to build sand castles, splash around in the water and enjoy lazy afternoons sprawled out, enjoying each other’s company in the sunshine.
