Bucket List Jax 2015 | 5 Things You Must Do | Amy on News 4 Jax
In the last twenty plus years that I’ve lived in Jax, I’ve seen some pretty cool things. However over the years it’s typical to kind of stick to the usual and stay in your neighborhood or avoid large events due to traffic. As I’ve begun to cover more of what makes the River City so special these last few years, I have fallen more in love with our great city. There is so much to do here and every year new great attractions and events make North FL their home. Here are some stand out things I think you need to put on your bucket list for 2015 if you live in or are visiting Jacksonville.
