KATHRYN ABBEY HANNA PARK REVIEWS
What a wonderful place! This is one of the nicest RV parks we have stayed at. First rate all the way! Beautiful tall old trees create a cooling canopy over all the sites. Great beach access, rental bikes, a good camp store, and lots of wildlife. If you can get a spot here, jump on it!
Amazing campground! Drive thru RV sites, General store, clean restrooms and showers within very short distance. The beach is beautiful, spot 10 is more crowded. 5 is a longer haul to the beach but much less crowded. Excellent for families with trails, playground, lake for fishing....a must do place!
My family and I love the park. Good place a family and friend get together. Fun water park fir kids. And nice sandy beaches.

JACKSONVILLE ARBORETUM & GARDENS REVIEWS
An absolute gem of a place in Jacksonville! I've been here my entire life and never knew it existed. Plenty of trails for varying degrees of ability, lots of trees and nature, peaceful if you get to go when it's not busy and when the weather is cooler/dryer to reduce the mosquitos and humidity. Loved this place!
Really enjoyed the short walks. Several paved and several gravel. Well shaded and easy strolls. Even though we were surrounded by city it felt very remote. A must if visiting Jacksonville! Cheap too ... $3 donation requested. (Please volunteer here, it can use the help to maintain its beauty and keep it cheap for all to enjoy)
A hidden Jewel in the heart of Jacksonville. We discovered this place while taking g group prom pictures. For a small donation you can walk a nature trail around me a large pond, with many flowers and plants on display. Highly recommend you checkout this peaceful place..

LITTLE TALBOT ISLAND STATE PARK REVIEWS
They still have a lot of unavailable sights due to hurricanes, but overall was a pretty good experience - quite, friendly. Right on the river, across from beach to your self; bring bug spray, no-see-'em come out at night!
Talbot is appealing if you enjoy beach parks. It offers fun surfing waves and miles of empty beach to relax. The state park employees are very informative and friendly.
Nice in any kind of weather. If you walk about a half a mile north, there are some nice palm trees that provide a little bit of shade. I’ve been to this beach many times over the past 20 years. It never disappoints!
