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.

  • So informative. Some history is hard to look at, to know what happened. But as long as we learn from our past we can hopefully put it to good use in the future. So happy I finally went!
  • Learn Southern history that is not taught in schools. Heritage. Great tour great price. I leaned new things. Enjoyed Mrs. Gaillard's thought and insight on the Monroe Tariff. Nice preservation and presentation!
  • Most amazing collection of artifacts and displays related to the civil war. Great onsite library for research. Knowledgeable volunteer guides standing ready to answer any questions. A must see and visit for the serious history buff. A hidden gem.
  • I care. Cool place, cheap entry. Good spot on a rainy afternoon. Learning is a lost art.
  • Great lecture and tour. I am in the Masters Program and was impressed with the extent of the knowledge of the tour guide. I did not see any bias or prejudice displayed. Great library for research. Fee is only a 3$ donation so you cannot beat the price.
