The River City
The sprawling city of Jacksonville is not only Florida's most populous city, but also the largest city by land area in the continental United States. Although much of fast-paced Jacksonville is distinctly urban, with massive high-rises and corporate headquarters, the city also features some historic neighborhoods, wildlife preserves, world-class golf courses, and beaches just a short drive from downtown. The city's numerous museums and galleries provide cultural entertainment, while the setting of St. Johns River, the Atlantic Ocean, and the nation's largest urban park system provide plenty of options for things to do outdoors. Plan your tour of Jacksonville and United States travel itinerary using our United States trip planner.

Where to stay in Jacksonville

Accommodations are spread out across Jacksonville and mainly consist of large hotels. For a more scenic stay, consider a hotel on the riverfront or the coast. Beachside accommodations provide the added benefit of being in a much quieter and slower-paced part of the city, but you are farther away from the majority of the city's cultural attractions. If you are planning a longer stay, consider a vacation rental with a kitchen to help ease food costs. These rentals are frequently located in residential neighborhoods.
