Jacksonville, Florida’s largest city, has many fascinating identities: it’s a thriving business hub; the third-largest military presence in the nation; a vacation hotspot for Floridians and out-of-state residents. Riverfront ambiance, white-sand beaches, diverse cuisine and entertainment, rich history and friendly people assure you a rewarding stay for business or pleasure. When you land at Jacksonville International Airport (JAX), take advantage of their free wi-fi, convenient parking options, rocking chairs, live music, on-site rental cars, fantastic art exhibits and wide array of shopping and dining options.

We feature regular flights between Jacksonville and many Florida destinations and seasonal weekend service from Jacksonville to Marsh Harbour in the Bahamas.

New nonstop service from Jacksonville to Fort Lauderdale starts August 19th 2014.

EXPLORE
Stroll through 1800s-era gardens, plantation house, kitchen house, barn, and slave cabins at Kingsley Plantation on Fort George Island. Book a weekend tour before you visit: it’s the only way to get full access. The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens inspires you inside, with permanent collections and rotating exhibitions from 2100 B.C. through the 21st Century, then invigorates you outside, with lush gardens and walking paths along the St Johns River. Big Talbot Island State Park is nature preserve and unspoiled beach in one. Walk the tree-lined trail to Boneyard Beach or take a guided kayak tour. Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary is the number-one-rated spot by TripAdvisor members. The volunteer staff is extra-friendly and knowledgeable about the big cats they help. Visit at feeding time for the best experience. (Call for hours, as they vary.)

 

PLAY
Adventure Landing is a can’t-miss reward for hard-working employees or family. Fight fierce laser tag battles, master 18-hole mini-golf and race the go-karts. Fuel up on snack bar goodies: spicy chicken fingers, cheesy pizza, soft pretzels and Krunch Bars. Treat kids to fun learning at Hands On Children’s Museum. Seventeen exhibits simulate exciting careers, from TV and radio jobs to Little Veterinarians, Toddlers First Adventures, Create and Race Lego Cars, Castle Stage, Construction Gear Wall and many more.

 

SHOP
If you enjoy farm-fresh produce, talented art and unique shopping, check out Riverside Arts Market. Arrive by foot, bike, car, boat or trolley: it’s held beneath the Fuller Warren Bridge canopy every Saturday, March through December. More than 100 artists and vendors, plus music, street performers, fresh, hand-crafted food court treats and fresh produce. Free admission and parking.

 

FEAST
The Alhambra Dinner Theater delivers live performances and tasty cuisine in one. Many show performers have worked on Broadway or national/international tours. The Visit Jacksonville website suggests two local legends: Metro Diner, a Chef Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-ins & Dives” pick. Located in historic San Marco, this eatery is known to draw lines that wrap around the building. Among its most famous items: the Sunday morning Breakfast Pie. They also suggest 13 Gypsies in the historic Riverside neighborhood…home to Chef Howard who garnered the attention of the Food Network.

 

CELEBRATE
Toast a winning deal or fun-filled vacation day at 50,000 sq-ft. Latitude 30, an all-in-one entertainment center. Fire-grilled dining at upscale 360 Grille; dancing in spacious Axis Bar with DJ, stage and dance floor; HD movies and sports theaters, 70-game arcade; 20-lane bowling alley, plus comedy club. Kids can visit, but geared more to 21+. Looking for the newest bars? Check out King Street District in Riverside or downtown at the Core.
