Friends racing go-karts on a track



Does the coming spring have you itching to get out and have some fun with your friends? Lucky for you, there are plenty of fun destinations in the Jacksonville area that will keep you and your pals entertained all season long.

Gregor MacGregor’s Mini Links & Drinks

Head over to Fernandina Beach to one of the best adult miniature golf destinations in Florida. This place is known as “Scottish greens on island time.” Their putt-putt course is lush, green, and a perfect place to hang with friends. And when you’ve completed the course, you can sit with your pals and enjoy their delicious menu offerings and drinks. They have a great selection of beers, cocktails, and classic drinks like mojitos, pina coladas, and margaritas. And you’ll feel like a kid again when you dig in to their hot dogs, corn dogs, soft pretzels, and ice cream treats.

Adventure Landing

Speaking of feeling like a kid again, no one can offer that experience quite like Adventure Landing. There, you can find all kinds of pastimes, including batting cages, go-karts, and laser tag. Their miniature golf course winds through “waterfalls” and “mountains” for an experience that will delight your inner child.

Jax Lanes Bowling Center

There’s nothing like a game of bowling to make a night with friends extra special. Jax Lanes features regular specials each week, like Tuesdays and Thursdays, which offer customers discounts on beer. Or head over on a Sunday for super cheap games, shoe rentals, and a deal on fries, soft drinks, and beer. The best thing about bowling is that it doesn’t matter how many gutter balls you get – it’s all about the bonding with friends.

The Phoenix Bar & Bowling

If you love bowling but want to take it up a notch, try The Phoenix Bar & Bowling, where they give this beloved pastime a sophisticated upgrade. Here, you’ll find four full bars well-stocked with craft spirits and domestic and imported brews. The weekends are like a dance club with their DJ-curated playlists and light shows. Go watch the games on their 26 HD televisions or enjoy a night of karaoke. And drop by on Wednesdays, when they serve craft pizza for dinner with dough shipped in straight from Brooklyn.
