Things to Do in Orange Park, FL
Located just 21 miles south of downtown Jacksonville, Orange Park is a town of only ten thousand year-round residents. Golfers can experience challenging terrain and play an invigorating 18 holes on the city’s two premier courses at the Eagle Harbor Golf Club and the Golf Club at Fleming Island, then retire for a cold beverage and all-American cheeseburger and fries at Cheers Park Avenue or any of the other eclectic eateries that dot Park Avenue.
If you’ve come with your little ones, take them for a fun family outing to Jumperz Fun Center, where they’ll have a great time playing numerous arcade games and darting around on a laser tag course.
Sportsmen will love the variety of fishing on 12 nearby lakes, reservoirs, and streams, and the Jacksonville area has no shortage of guides available to help land trophy fish in both freshwater and saltwater. Head out in the morning with Jacksonville Fishing Trips or numerous other charters to hook redfish, flounder, spotted sea trout, grouper, and many more fish species along the Coast and the coastal bay and inlets of the region.
Of course, no trip to coastal Florida would be complete without a visit to the local beach, and our Orange Park vacation rentals give you quick access to some of Jacksonville’s best! Just 30 miles east (about half an hour's drive) lies prime Atlantic Coast beachfront that offers fun in the sun, sand, and surf, including Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach, and Jacksonville Beach. So grab some sunblock and head to the beach!
