I love Jacksonville. It’s a huge, beautiful city, with countless things to do. One of my favorites is the Riverside Arts Market. It’s right on the river, and it’s a total celebration of all things local — artists, musicians, produce, etc. And did I mention it’s right on the river? That’s another one of my favorite things about Jacksonville — no matter where you go, you’re never very far from the water.
Jacksonville is a great city. I often forget that or take it for granted, but there are seriously a ton of things to do! The river is gorgeous, there are plenty of museums and different events happen almost every weekend.
This weekend, I spent the afternoon on the Riverwalk and at The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. It was pretty chilly, but amazingly sunny and gorgeous. And even though a few of the exhibits at the museum were closed, the gardens were stunning and the view of downtown Jacksonville never ceases to amaze.
Despite the fact that it’s quite freezing outside, I went on a quick little photo adventure today. My dad and I drove down to JU (where I work), which happens to be right on the St. Johns River, and also happens to be about 3 minutes away from our house. The sun was setting over the river and even though my fingers were numb, I enjoyed trying out my new camera for its first outdoor photo shoot!
