Several beautiful hikes on Big Talbot Island and if you are a birder, Spoonbill Pond at the north end is a great spot. Black Rock Trail is a highlight (there are several parking areas on the east side of A1A and Black Rock Trail is one of them). Managed by the State Parks, you must pay to visit - I believe it's a $3 fee.

Definitely a staple of Jacksonville and worth checking out their current exhibit as well as the permanent collection. They also maintain a garden along the St. Johns River. The museum is free on Tuesdays and also has a nice cafe and restaurant.
