San Marco

The Little Italy of Jacksonville - this attraction brings you to San Marco, modeled after Venice Italy excites with an eclectic mix of pocket neighborhoods with cool shady parks and a business district following along the St. Johns River to what is now the Southbank of downtown Jacksonville, and Friendship Park.  San Marco is a relatively small and generally upscale neighborhood with sprawling riverside mansions. It is an area of historical and cultural significance in Jacksonville, and its inhabitants and proprietors identify strongly with their community.

Known as a trendy area, the most identifying feature of San Marco is "the Square," an artsy shopping, dining, and entertainment district; its galleries, restaurants, and boutiques are overwhelmingly independently owned, operated, and supported which lends to its vogue. Visitors of the Square are likely to see polite intermingling between young professionals, landed gentry, "scenesters," and "starving artists."

Common landmarks are its large statue of three lions and the Art Deco styled San Marco Theater.  This attraction boasts some of the most spectacular views of the St. Johns River.

Beautiful statues adorn San Marco Square along with fountains, and other European architecture.  Koi Ponds, Duck Ponds, and the river wildlife including bald eagles make this ride unique.  One of the oldest sections of North Florida, San Marco has personality of it's own with a mix of old and new.  Free Parking.  Restaurants, a boat ramp, shops and The Museum of Science and History are available before or after the attraction.
