Welcome to Jacksonville
Jacksonville is the largest city in Florida both by population and geographical size. Encompassing 840 square miles, Jacksonville is in fact the largest city in the continental U.S. It was named for General Andrew Jackson, the first military governor of Florida and seventh President of the U.S., who, incidentally, never visited Jacksonville. Centered on the banks of the St. Johns River - about 25 miles south of the Georgia state line, the city boasts stretches of nearby beaches and convention space for up to 10,000 people, attracting leisure vacationers as well as business travelers.
With such a sprawling layout, the city can be navigated by rental car or taxi. You can also visit shops and restaurants by water taxi. If you're considering what to pack, remember that you're traveling to the Sunshine State. In the summer, temperatures peak in the 90s and during the winter months, averages hover in the mid 50s. Additional tip: People from Jacksonville are referred to as either Jacksonvillians or Jaxons.
