#DTJax Weekly Update: October 4-10, 2022

Instagram of the Week

Acting silly in the river city! We love this capture by @seang_thatsme on the Northbank Riverwalk near Corkscrew Park!

Have you had a chance to visit this portion of the Riverwalk on the Northbank? Featuring murals by David Nackashi and a railroad bridge covered in locks, this makes for one of the best spots alongside the St Johns River. Next time you want to go for a walk, we recommend taking a stroll to Corkscrew Park to see this spot yourself!

Use the hashtag #DTJax for a chance to be featured as the next Instagram of the Week.
