Jacksonville, perfectly positioned along the Atlantic Ocean in northeast Florida, is a natural paradise for visitors looking for an affordable yet luxurious destination. Stretches of stunning beaches and waterways, a downtown in renaissance and experiences that engross the mind, body and inner adventurer lure visotors to "immerse themself" in Jacksonville, Florida. And Jacksonville�s outdoors explode with opportunities to experience world-class Adventure & Sports.
Surprisingly, for a non-tourism town, there are a number of cool things to do in Jacksonville. These mostly revolve around history and nature. Unlike coastal South Florida, there are still vast swaths of Northeast Florida that are pretty much the way it was when experienced by William Bartram, whose 18th century descriptions of the area inspired the imagery for Samuel Taylor Coleridge�s epic poem Kubla Khan. You can go back a ways, to Gilded Age mansions in Fernandina, further back to pre-Civil War plantations, or take a trip on the river to see the primeval Florida that so captivated early settlers.
The "River City by the Sea" boasts more than 20 miles of wide and uncrowded beaches, close to 40 miles of the tranquil Intracoastal Waterway canal, and the longest stretch of the beautiful St. Johns River. Riverwalk was a welcome additon to the Jacksonville waterfront when it was built years ago. It's a nice place to just spend some time walking and relaxing in a good atmosphere. The Riverwalk and Saint John's River are valuable and beautiful gems for Jacksonville and a great place to spend some time.
