Jacksonville Bucket List Ideas
A - Ale Trail
There are way too many great breweries in Jacksonville to choose just one! That’s why we love to ‘hops’ on the Jax Ale Trail to try them all! You can even scoop up a Brewery Passport to get stamped at each brewery as you travel around the city in search of your perfect ale!
We suggest picking out four breweries on the ale trail to hit up to win your own Jax Ale Trail koozie!
B - BrewHound Dog Park + Bar
Get your pooch in on the fun at BrewHound Dog Park + Bar! We absolutely love making friends while our dogs do to in this combo dog park and bar! Our dogs can run around safely with all of their new friends – with a separated small and large dog park – while we can chill at the bar with a cold drink in hand!
Don’t have a dog? That’s okay! The bar is still a great bar to hang out and who doesn’t love watching doggos run around all night!
C - The Caffeinated Cat
Dogs a little rowdy for you? Don’t worry, Jacksonville has a place for every furry friend like our feline favorite – The Caffeinated Cat! This coffee shop and wine bar is the perfect spot for cat lovers to unite and cozy on up with some adorable cats!
Our favorite part? The cats are adoptable! So if you find one that bonds with you instantly, you can adopt your newest fur baby and have a great story to tell about their adoption!

F - Fish from the Jacksonville Beach Pier
What’s more Florida than hanging out with your fishing rod and the sounds of waves crashing into the beach? Nothing, there really is nothing more Florida than taking a day to fish at the Jacksonville Beach Fishing Pier!
We love going to the pier after a long day of work and letting out line do the work while we watch the sun go down over the horizon!

Fill your home with the best and greenest plants from The Green Spot! This adorable plant boutique is located within the Jacksonville Farmers Market! You can keep an eye on their Facebook to find out when they’re around so you can stock up on more plants – and yes, you do need more!
