Why to Visit Jacksonville
If 22 miles of white sand beaches along the Atlantic Ocean aren't enough of a reason to visit Jacksonville, consider this: This Florida city is also home to top-rated restaurants, a prominent jazz festival, bustling art markets, public parks where you can hike and bike, and wildlife sanctuaries housing cougars and other big cats.
When to Visit Jacksonville

Spring is also a popular time to visit Jacksonville, when the weather is warm and dry. If your plans include more than just the beach, consider visiting during the cooler period between December and early March.
