You see this in pictures all the time. It looks great in a screen shot but its even more beautiful at street level. There seems to be a breeze that comes across the fountains

Perfect place to take In the beauty of the amazing Jacksonville skyline. I was in the city for not so happy reasons but fell in love with the fountain and the skyline and it's certainly something I miss!
