When WestJet flies to this destination:
With the largest land area and population in Florida, Jacksonville has a diverse and expansive lifestyle in each of its four corners. This city is bordered by the sunny shores of the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the resort-like ambiance of Nassau County to the north, the rural beauty of Baker County to the west and the stunning lakes and forested landscape of Clay County to the south.
As the United States’ third-largest seaport, Jacksonville also has a large military presence. The U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Air National Guard all have multiple facilities within the city limits. Colossal warships, aircraft carriers, fighter jets and helicopters are all part of the exciting scenery in Jacksonville.
There are heaps of museums to choose from, with subject matter ranging from historic maritime exhibits to contemporary art and interactive children’s museums. Jacksonville Landing is a massive complex of shopping, dining and entertainment options that should not be missed. Then there’s Riverwalk, a system of pathways running along the St. Johns River where entertainment pavilions along the way offer live music and shows daily. Also, locals and visitors all agree that the Jacksonville Zoo ranks among the world’s best.
The 20 miles of unspoiled, sumptuous beaches along Jacksonville’s eastern shoreline will give you ample space and opportunity to enjoy the Florida sunshine and spend time relaxing, playing and having fun. With over 50 golf courses in the region, players have their pick of courses, each with varying challenges to suit all levels of experience.
For a slightly different flavour to your trip, visit nearby Amelia Island where the town of Fernandina Beach has its own distinct flair. Victorian buildings add to the atmosphere as this tiny island has a rich past filled with pirates, confederates and Timucua Indians. Be sure to stop in at the oldest continuously-running bar – The Palace Saloon, as well as the Amelia Island Museum of History, and Old Town where you can learn about the former Spanish fort, San Carlos.
