Very interesting murals in this funky small city

Picked up a map at the Chamber of Commerce Visitir Center. Drove around looking at these after a visit to the Gardens Fun activity.

The murals are varied and interesting highlighting the area's history and notable people. My favorite is the Civil War Mural with a dock that 'follows' you. It is a perfect example of serendipitous perspective so if you keep your focus on the dock as you walk past, it seems to follow. Pick up a brochure from the Welcome Center for... More

We enjoyed our overnight stay in this town, as we found it charming and unique with the riverfront and many artistic murals sprinkled on various architecturally interesting period buildings in the downtown area. It was a lovely Old Florida find for this native Floridian.

As you are traveling through Palatka you can check out the murals on the sides of stores of past times in Palatka.

Drive around town and you will see them. You can walk. It would be nice to have a walk tour map. There are many beautiful older churches in town as well. Beautiful town.

The murals are beautiful... Truly.... But they also show the horrible legacy of racism and segregation in America... That being said I think it's better to confront our past then to act like it never happened.

As my buddy and I were driving through the town, we saw perhaps a dozen of these murals; all were interesting and well done. A few were excellent, and worth inspecting on foot. I was especially impressed by the William Bartram mural, which celebrates the great explorer, naturalist, and nature writer, who traveled down the river in the late 18th... More

The murals are very interesting. The work is from a variety of artists so each one offers a different style. They go from the founding of the community to more modern times so there is something for everyone. The murals are also refreshed from time to time so they stay looking good

Three friends and I decided to take a driving tour of downtown Palatka and see the 20+ murals throughout the city. We got a map and headed to the first one. They were amazing! Easy to locate and not too far apart. The paintings were very diverse in themes, styles, artists and subjects. There was everything from local flora and... More
