Downtown Urban Hike and MOSH

We'll meet at Friendship Fountain to begin our urban hike of downtown Jacksonville. We'll cross the Acosta Bridge on foot, pass by the Jacksonville Landing following the northbank Riverwalk, cross the Main Street Bridge, then return to Friendship Fountain following the southbank Riverwalk. The entire loop is about two miles in length.

For those interested, we will then continue on to the Museum of Science and History (MOSH). There is a $10 admission fee, plus another $5 admission fee to the MOSH Planetarium. There are some really awesome displays and shows right now.

For more information about the MOSH, including the planetarium, go here: http://www.themosh.org/Home.html

Afterward we can have lunch at River City Brewing Company.

You can park at the MOSH parking lot or the River City Brewing Company designated MOSH spots. Get directions to Museum Circle here: http://goo.gl/maps/K8Jg4

    Really fun. I went to the MOSH for the first time ever, probably something I would have never done on my own. Great people and a great hike. Thanks Joseph for organizing it.

      Where did you hear the bridges are closing? I'm searching now and can't find anything about it, other than the usual Matthews Bridge closure for painting. I'll keep searching.
