A Dazzling Night at the Jacksonville Arboretum & Botanical Gardens

The holidays are a wonderful time in Jax, and this year there is a brand-new event to celebrate Winter on the Water!

The Jacksonville Arboretum & Botanical Gardens has always been a favorite of mine, so I was excited when they announced the new “Dazzling Nights” holiday event. The arboretum and gardens were transformed into a magical wonderland with a million dazzling lights, shining forests, magical displays and beautiful sculptures.

For me, the highlight of the three-quarter-mile interactive holiday experience is the interactive lights that are set up along the walkway that light up as you walk across. Families can also enjoy live entertainment and holiday inspired food and beverage while they gather for photos around the 30’ tall Christmas tree.

Tickets must be purchased for a specific time and date. $22 per person weekdays, $25 per person weekends.
