Catch You On the Flip Side of Florida
With 22 miles of beautiful sandy beaches and an average of 221 days of sun per year, Jacksonville, Florida deserves its spot within the sunshine state. Stroll through endless magnolias and palm trees, explore lively downtown streets, and soak up the amazing weather year-round. The city has many facets, including beachfronts, cozy neighborhoods, and a bustling city center. As the largest city by area in the contiguous United States, Jacksonville will always have new areas worth exploring.
Spend your days in the sun a brief drive north at Atlantic Beach, further south at Jacksonville Beach, or head to St. John’s River for walking, fishing, and boating. Golf courses are also a popular destination year-round with over 20 to choose from. Each course has stellar ratings, but Bent Creek Golf Course, Blue Cypress Golf Course, and Atlantic Beach Country Club are fan favorites.
St. John’s Riverfront in downtown Jacksonville shines as the central point of the city. Stay along the water at the Hyatt Regency hotel or eat your way through the waterfront at the Chart House and River and Post dining beside spectacular views. Experience the city seaside on one of the famous Kraken Cycle boats or join PNC for their sip & stroll on the Southbank Riverwalk the third Thursday of every month. Find ample outdoor shopping opportunities with St. John’s Town Center, and diverse shopping districts like Beaches Town Center and Avondale.
No matter when you visit, there’s always a way to enjoy “the flip side” of Florida in Jacksonville!
From chef Kenny Gilbert of Silkie’s Chicken and Champagne Bar, Jacksonville, Florida “I always love to shake things up on game day. Fresh simple ingredients and bold flavors. My jerk-spice roasted broccoli with papaya chutney certainly delivers.”- Kenny Gilbert
