After moving for a job and looking for better weather, I wondered what to expect from the northeastern corner of Florida. When I moved from my hometown of New York City to Jacksonville, Florida, a few years ago, it didn't take long for me to discover that music and art were everywhere. If you are looking for a great place to live, work, vacation or for your job, this is the time to experience all that Jax has to offer.
Here you will find a free city tour of the city center with a variety of restaurants, bars, shops, cafes, art galleries, museums and more.

We are an educational institution, including water, and we offer our students a high quality higher education. Our institutions include the University of Jacksonville, Jacksonville State University, Florida Atlantic University and Jacksonville Community College. We are a member of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), a coalition of more than 1,000 colleges and universities in the United States, including Florida A & M University in Gainesville and Florida State College in Jacksonville.
Jacksonville is home to five of Florida's leading institutions and the state's second-largest city with a population of more than 1.5 million. We are currently one of the top 10 cities in Florida with the highest number of college students per capita and we are the third largest metropolitan region in North America with an average annual income of $50,000 or more per person per year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Not only do we claim the top spot on the American Association of University Professors' list of visiting colleges and universities, we are also the fourth most popular city for college and university visits in South Florida.
Jacksonville has more coastlines than any other city in Florida and offers many opportunities to explore waterways. Sport fishing is a popular tourist activity. Several beach communities border Jacksonville and we attract active residents who like to spend their weekends on waves, roller coasters or on the water's edge. Jacksonville's beaches are so popular that the sand is still crowded in summer.
Tear off at one of the 70 golf courses in the area or perfect your own game at a public or private course in a city, including Jacksonville Golf Club, Jacksonville Country Club and Jacksonville State Golf Course. Test your luck at water sports in Jacksonville and test your skills on the beach or in the water. Sport is a way of life for many of us who have moved to Jacksonville, Florida from other parts of Florida or even other states.
The best views of Jacksonville are from the water, so bring your own boat to a marina or try a canoe or kayak ride. Yulee has the St. Marys River for all boating needs and locals like the idea of exploring the beach and exciting nightlife. If you want to travel from one side of the city to the other, the drive through or past downtown Jacksonville will take you past your destination. The drive from Miami to Jacksonville can take about 5 hours and 25 minutes if you plan to visit, but several coastal beaches are just a short drive away, making this suburb ideal for beach lovers.
