Whether you are in the area for a vacation at the beach or if you are just passing through along the interstate, Jacksonville, Florida has a lot to offer for those who are in the area! To some, Jacksonville can tend to have multiple personalities: there is the downtown area with the tall skyscrapers and urban metropolis, there is a beach town vibe with the fresh seafood and kitschy beach shops, and then there is the rising neighborhoods dedicated to authentic craftsmanship and artisan goods. No matter what you preferences, there is something for everyone. But today, I am delving into the beauty of the city. Within the area, there are quirky little murals, gorgeous natural attractions, and perfectly even some retro architecture that make cool spots for photos in Jacksonville, Florida. Check out my pinned map below!

1. Driftwood Beach at Big Talbot State Park

Driftwood Beach in Big Talbot State Park is full of trees that have been petrified with the salty ocean water and drifted up to this one spot on the beach. Tons and tons of trees that make a spooky backdrop especially on a dreary day!

Start at the Florida Theatre where the retro marquee in the perfect shade of Millenial Pink and reminds of the middle of the 19th century!

3. Main Street Bridge

In a bright and shocking color of blue, this industrial bridge is perfect for a backdrop of the edgy variety! You can also walk on the bridge if you want but I ran out of time for my visit.

4. Treaty Oak

This giant oak tree is so heavy, the limbs are laying on the ground! This is shockingly surrounded by office buildings which was definitely not what I was expecting. There is a wooden walkway that leads you under the canopy of the tree.
