Friendship Fountain

Located near San Marco and in St. Johns River Park, Friendship Fountain is a gorgeous, tall fountain that sits outside. When it opened, it was the world’s largest and tallest fountain and is still one of the biggest attractions in Florida. This spot is stunning, but wait until you see it at night! When the lights in the fountain match up against the lights in the city, it’s truly a beautiful sight to see.

Riverfront Park

If you’re in San Marco, you must find some time to get outside! You’re right by the beach and the cool breezes from the ocean are like magic. Riverfront Park is a smaller park in San Marco, and it is also a favorite for those who love to go fishing. Besides this, there’s something that you might be able to see manatees! Sometimes, you can catch manatees surfacing in the water. What better way to enjoy San Marco than this?!
