Take the River Taxi

Starting from various points like the DoubleTree Hotel in San Marco, you can embark on a river cruise along the St. Johns River for a delightful dolphin-watching adventure. Enjoy quality time with family and friends as you take in the scenic beauty and playful dolphins. You can book online!

Visit the Friendship fountain/SouthBank Riverwalk

San Marco proudly features the newly revitalized Friendship Fountain, a vibrant attraction with lights, music, and picnic benches. Soon, it will also include a pirate-themed park for kids! Enjoy nightly shows at 7:30, 8:00, and 8:30 pm, where lights and music create a magical experience.

Cummer Museum

Founded in 1961 following the passing of Ninah Cummer, who generously donated her gardens and personal art collection, the Cummer Museum offers a dynamic cultural experience. One of its unique features is the rotating galleries, ensuring each visit reveals new art. From stunning outdoor gardens to indoor art exhibits, the museum is a welcoming destination for families and children.
