Jacksonville Zoo

On Labor Day, we took advantage of the work/school holiday for a road trip to Jacksonville and a day at the zoo. When am I going to learn that it’s still too hot in September for an all-day outdoor activity this far south? We enjoyed seeing the animals, but we were also very glad for the zoo’s splash park. There was a shaded area for the adults and plenty of water fun for the kiddos.
