Spend an Afternoon at Riverside Arts Market

Riverside Arts Market is the perfect Spring date idea in Jacksonville! Stroll along the water as you check out local vendors for food, local produce, and cool arts and knick-knacks! The market is always free, and the vendors rotate so there is always something new to see!

We’re partial to the Riverside Arts Market, but there are plenty of other awesome festivals and markets all around Jax to check out too!

Dine Waterfront at Conch House Restaurant

What’s more “Jacksonville-esque” then a good old fashioned waterfront meal? Conch House Restaurant is the perfect spot to feel the Spring breeze while dining with your babe! Their tiki hut vibes will have you feeling like you’re on vacation, but at the same time it’s fancy enough to feel like a splurge of a night out! Have some delish seafood under the Florida sunset for your next romantic date night!

Go to a Local Beer Garden

Jacksonville has some seriously amazing beer! If brews are your thing, you’ll have to check out one of Jax’s many amazing beer gardens on your next date this spring! There are all kinds of local beers to try, from hoppy to sweet, and the breweries are all cool and unique too! Grab your date (and dog if you have one!) and head to one of these tasty breweries for your next date night!

See a Drive-In Movie

Have a blast from the past with a drive in movie in Jacksonville! There are actually quite a few drive in theaters in Jax, but one of our favs is Sun Ray Cinema Drive-In. Pack the car with some wine and snacks, and check out the flick they’re showing at the moment. Each car is only $25!

Catch a Jumbo Shrimp Game

Gooooo Jumbo Shrimp! This Spring, take your partner out to the ballgame, and support our local Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp!

You and your partner will have so much fun at the game, and we promise you’ll love the nachos and ball park dogs!
