passenger van rental destinationsVisitors and residents of Jacksonville, FL love life at the beach—and rightly so. However, on a rainy day or just to mix things up, you may be looking for a Jacksonville attraction unique to the region. If you’re interested at all in art and culture, Carl’s Van Rentals suggests that you hop in your passenger van rental and head to Cummer Museum. 

In case you need some convincing, here are three reasons why you should consider spending a day or half-day at the Cummer Museum. 

1. Avoid the tourist trap.

While the beach is great, it can get crowded from time to time, and you may not be in the mood to fight for a spot for your beach blanket. The Cummer Museum is a quality Jacksonville attraction that’s less crowded than the beach or other major South or Central Florida tourist hubs. 

You certainly won’t have to fight for a parking spot for your passenger van rental. Conversely, the atmosphere at the Cummer Museum lends itself to relaxation and reflection, rather than the elbow-to-elbow crowds you find in many tourist traps.

2. Celebrate the arts. 

The heart of Cummer Museum is to make the arts accessible to all people. The mission of the Cummer Museum is “to engage and inspire through the arts, gardens, and education.” Whether you’re an artist at heart or just learning to explore the art world, the Cummer Museum has something for you.

The museum is home to over 5,000 permanent art pieces, ranging from 2100 B.C. to modern day. Additionally, you can find many special exhibits or collections. You will want to check the Cummer Museum’s website to see which special collections or exhibits are currently on display.

3. Soak in some peace and tranquility in the gardens.

In addition to the art exhibits, several gardens surround the Cummer Museum. You can take an interactive garden tour with your mobile tablet, or just sit in the gardens for a while. The Cummer Museum has three main gardens—the English Garden, the Italian Garden, and the Olmsted Garden—each with its own distinct look and rich history.

The Cummer Museum is a great change of pace for both Jacksonville visitors and residents.
