Photographing the Hidden Gems of Jacksonville


If you’re the type of traveler who is looking for authentic travel experiences, a delicious culinary scene and the opportunity to interact with locals, then a visit to Jacksonville, Florida might just be for you. Jacksonville is the city where you can find yourself serenaded by the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra on a picnic blanket under the stars at Metropolitan Park, or walk amongst piles of gnarled and weathered driftwood on a secluded beach with no one in sight. Just a short drive north of Orlando, it’s a great escape from the hoards of people and theme parks.

Thanks to a recent visit with our local Jacksonville resident contributor, Ashley, we have the scoop on some Jacksonville must-see-and-eat hidden gems over on Alamo’s Scenic Route blog this month. Find out our favorite places to eat, where you can have a hidden beach all to yourself and where to spend a fun-filled afternoon with the kids. For our budding photographers, we give a few simple tips and tricks to help best capture your vacation memories at each spot.
