October is coming to an end and I’m really looking forward to November. We’re headed to the Georgia mountains with friends this month and I cannot wait! Bring on the crisp air and my Fall wardrobe, good food, beautiful scenery, and the memories. This month will also reveal the gender of our baby and one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving! Lots of great things happening in November.
There are also a ton of events happening in Jacksonville throughout the month, including one of my favorite events of the year. Here are my event picks for the month of November.
Throughout the month of November, kids under 12 get in FREE to some of Jacksonville’s best attractions including Jacksonville Zoo, MOSH, MOCA, Catty Shack Ranch, Sweet Pete’s, and Marineland. This is a great opportunity to let your kids explore, learn something new, and spend quality time with family even when you’re on a budget. >> EVENT LISTING
