the beautiful beaches of jacksonville1) The Beaches of Jacksonville
The Jacksonville Beaches, known locally as the "Beaches" or simply the "Beach", are a group of towns and communities on the northern half of an unnamed barrier island on the US state of Florida's First Coast, all of which are suburbs or parts of the city of Jacksonville. Jacksonville is the largest city by land area in the United States, and has 20 miles of beaches, beginning in Mayport to the north and ending with Jacksonville Beach to the south. Most of the beaches are wide and sandy, with plenty of room to play!

Built in 1564, Fort Caroline was one of the first European settlements in America, but unfortunately the remains of the original fort have never been located. This replica is based on historical records and personal accounts, and includes reproductions of Timucuan huts and canoes that offer a glimpse of the relationship settlers forged with Native Americans.

One of the oldest plantation homes in Florida, this historic site was owned by Zephaniah Kingsley, one of the biggest slave traders in America. The house and grounds are available for daily guided tours, and the restored slave quarters offer a startling reminder of Florida's history.

Jacksonville's downtown art walk takes place the first Wednesday of each month over a 15 block radius, between 5 and 9 p.m., rain or shine. Despite only being in existence for a few short years, Art Walk has quickly turned into one of Jacksonville's finest attractions. It features 30 or so galleries, live music, food and drink, and work from local artists.

7) Riverside District
riverside district jacksonvilleThe reasons for visiting Jacksonville's historic Riverside-Avondale district are plenty. For starters, it's one of the most well-preserved historic neighborhoods in the United States, with over 5,000 historic buildings. Riverside-Avondale was named one of the top ten neighborhoods in the U.S. by the American Planning Association. The Financial Times called it "the closest thing you'll find to Greenwich Village in Florida."

8) The Jacksonville Museum of Contemporary Arts

It's across the street from the historic Hemming Plaza in downtown Jacksonville, the city's first park. MOCA is adjacent to the downtown Jacksonville library in the former Western Telegraph Co. building. It opened in 2003 in partnership with UNF.

jacksonville landing9) Jacksonville Landing
What would Jacksonville be without the St. John's River? One could easily argue it's the lifeline of Jacksonville. The Jacksonville Landing is a great place to walk alongside its waters, catch a boat ride, have dinner, and even do some shopping. The Landing is also a popular hangout following Jaguars games and features 300 to 400 special events each year.
