The Jaxson: Northbank Renaissance Walking Tour

Join The Jaxson for a guided walking tour of Jacksonville’s Downtown Northbank. With a history dating back even before the founding of the city in 1822, the Northbank has undergone continuous change over the centuries. On this tour, we’ll explore the past, present and future of the heart of the city.

Beyond the headlines focusing on “game changing” proposals that never seem to come together, there’s a burgeoning renaissance of adaptive reuse projects underway within the walkable Northbank core. Our guides will give you an inside look at how local developers are changing the face of Downtown right before our eyes. We’ll share critical insight on how the power of clustering complementary uses within a compact setting will have a dramatic impact on realizing the vibrant Downtown local leaders have long strived to achieve.

The tour begins and ends at James Weldon Johnson Park. Street parking is free. Tickets are $20; kids 12 and under are free. The tour is suitable for most travelers.
