Ravine Gardens State

While the city itself is quite scenic and pleasant to spend a day wandering around, the real place that Palatka shines is with its wide areas of beautiful outdoor parks. Ravine Gardens State Park is probably the largest and most well known in the area. It is 59 acres of cypress trees, rock gardens, fieldstone terraces, and more. It is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places and houses an obelisk monument to the great Franklin D. Roosevelt. Once you are in the park you can enjoy any number of activities such as hiking, biking, and jogging.

Blue Crab Bonanza

Food is a big part of living in the south, and Palatka is no different. Their specialty lies in a little shelled crustacean that calls the shores of the Atlantic home, and is quite delicious with a garlic butter sauce. The Blue Crab is synonymous with the area and, as such, you can find this dish on almost all the local seafood restaurants in town when the season starts. They love this little guy so much they even have a festival to celebrate the critter. Every Memorial Day Weekend, the entire city throws a big crab fest with music, entertainment, and crabs galore.

Florida Azelea Festiv

Another piece of nature that is native to the area is the gorgeous pink and red hues of the local azaleas. These gorgeous flowers bloom in the spring and give vibrant colors to the season. Starting in 1938, the local chapter of the Jaycees Organization started the Azalea Festival to celebrate the spring with a party, and it has not stopped since. Now centered in downtown Palatka, it features a parade, crafts show, car display, amateur golf tournament, and bowling competitions. It is a big deal if you are from around here, and not to be missed if you are passing through.
