Meet Visit Jax Ambassador: Jacksonville Mom

Hi! We are Megan Kilis and Vicky Lane from the Jacksonville Mom team. Since 2012, we’ve been the #1 parenting resource for Jacksonville and the surrounding areas. From our favorite kid-friendly spots to fun events and activities for the whole family, we love where we live and we love sharing it with you all!


1. What do you love most about Jacksonville?

We have it all! Bright sunshine, the beach and plenty of waterways. Plus, there's always something fun for the whole family to do, see or eat.


2. What is one thing you tell a visitor that they must see/do when in Jax?

We can't choose just one! A few of our favorites are: The Jacksonville Zoo, taking the Mayport Ferry to Boneyard Beach on Big Talbot Island and checking out the big cats at Catty Shack Ranch.


3. Where is your favorite local spot to eat?

Can't beat the atmosphere—or the BBQ—at Bearded Pig For the whole family. Date night favorites include Eleventh Street at the beach and bb's in San Marco.
