No need to leave Jacksonville to find a winter wonderland — just head over to Shipwreck Island Water Park. Now in its second year, WinterFEST at Adventure Landing in Jacksonville Beach is the newest holiday tradition that’ll warm your soul, Nov. 17, 2012 to Jan. 13, 2013.
Everyone is invited to soak in the holiday fun, and there's plenty of it:
You can also sip gourmet coffees, hot chocolate and warm cider while noshing on sweet treats and comfort foods as you explore their version of an alpine village.
I heard all wonderful reviews from last year. Scoring high marks were Santa's Workshop, the cookie decorating and the holiday carnival games. Seasonal passes are available this year, too.
