Outdoor Tours in Downtown Jacksonville

Author: Alexandra LaRocque, Downtown Vision Marketing and Events Intern

Do you know how many incredible tours your city has to offer? From cruising down the St. Johns River to pedaling the streets with your friends, Downtown Jacksonville has it all. It’s never been easier to plan a family visit, date night, bachelorette party or outing with the kids. Here’s a list of tours for you to choose from, all with social distancing and safety at the core of their priorities:

St. Johns River Taxi

Up first is the St. Johns River Taxi. This tour is sure to leave you with a different perspective of Downtown. What better way to get a great view other than being right in the middle of it all? Not only do they have regular tours that operate everyday (except Mondays), they also have specialty tours and private charters. Grab your tickets so you can sit back and soak in the views.

Go Tukn’

Next, we have Go Tuk’n. These spunky vehicles are some of the nicest wheels in downtown. They can take you on a short trip for lunch or dinner, or provide awesome tours including art and brewery tours! With the wide variety that Go Tuk’n has to offer, you’re sure to find something that works for you and your group. What are you waiting for?
