Wildlife Area Nature / Park
See Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary, where rescued wild cats are cared for. Animals seized due to illegal or poor ownership are permanent residents of this sanctuary. You can interact with volunteers and meet about 40 animals, among which are tigers, lions, cougars, leopards, bobcats, arctic foxes, and coatimundis. Take a guided tour, usually scheduled in the afternoon and evening and find out about the species currently at the sanctuary, their habitats, activities, and life stories. Because this is a volunteer operation, tour times and hours can vary, so double-check the website before going. Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Jacksonville Edition.

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.
