Book one of the beautiful Jacksonville resorts on the beach, and you can spend your time soaking up the sun, watching an exciting sports game, or taking in one of the outstanding cultural sites.
Jacksonville might not be as far south as Miami, but that doesn't mean that it's not the ideal location for a beach vacation. The city features a long stretch of beautiful coastline that makes it the perfect spot for swimming, sunning, and snorkeling. The area also has a myriad of luxury Jacksonville hotels boasting spas and resort amenities, which afford visitors an idyllic getaway and relaxing escape. To take a dip in the Atlantic, visit the city's biggest public beach, Jacksonville Beach, or go on a boat ride that leaves from Mike McCue Park and Boat Ramp. If you want a taste of the city's more swampy side, check out the parks at Cradle Creek Preserve.
