For some fun in the Jacksonville sun, head to Little Talbot Island State Park. It draws thousands of visitors every year who come to enjoy everything from beachcombing to camping. Here is some of what you can discover near our apartments in Jacksonville.
Whether you explore the marsh or the maritime hammock forest, you're certain to see nature's feathery creatures. One of the species you may spot includes the red knots. These charming sandpipers are bulky shorebirds with stout bills and short legs. Breeding adults are cinnamon-colored below and mottled gray and cinnamon above. They forage on mudflats, lagoons, and flat beaches, and as they search for food, you may hear their nasal knutt call.
With more than five miles of beach, it's no wonder that Little Talbot is called a surf fishing paradise. Cast a line for flounder, redfish, black drum, and more. For bait, the closest shop is On-the-Line Bait and Tackle, located about five miles away at Amelia Island State Park. To enjoy some fishing fun, be sure and bring your fishing license. You can easily obtain one online.
One of the most popular activities at Little Talbot, shelling is best planned around the low phase of the tide. Treasure hunters search for scallops, periwinkle, fossilized shark teeth, and other items. The shell and shark teeth sheet at the ranger station will help identify your finds.
The park is open 365 days a year, from 8:00 a.m. until sunset. For another way to have some fun, spend a day at the Jacksonville Zoo. You will see giraffes, charming otters, and more. Finally, to become a resident of Lakeline at Bartram Park, please contact our leasing team. They would love to show you our apartments in Jacksonville firsthand.
