Visit Jacksonville! Though formerly known for its paper mills, and pine tree farms, Jacksonville has since turned into a sprawling metropolis bursting with attractions, restaurants, and new hotels popping up at a strong and steady pace as the population of Jacksonville increases year over year. Making your way to the downtown area, guests can dive right into all the happenings at the Southbank Riverwalk where restaurants like Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Morton’s Steakhouse, and the Wine Cellar all beckon your appetite. In between meals, enjoy shopping on the south side at The Avenues Mall, Relax in the public square in the quaint neighborhood of San Marco or go “upscale” at St. John’s Town Center before spending the rest of your night experiencing Jacksonville’s impressive performing arts mecca at either the Jacksonville Municipal Stadium or the smaller Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts. Not only does Jax offer these many city lures but also invites its guests to take advantage of the 20 miles of Atlantic coastline, more than a handful of gorgeous state parks, and outdoor adventures to be had all while visiting the city. Just take your pick!
