Entertainment and stunning beaches fill Jacksonville

Jacksonville is Florida's largest city, and the sprawling metropolitan area has a wide variety of attractions that makes it an ideal base for travelers to The Sunshine State. From the musical delights of the country's second-largest jazz festival, to year-round lounging on beautiful sandy beaches, Jacksonville has many compelling reasons for guests to pay a visit. This vibrant, modern city is home to a healthy blend of permanent entertainment venues and regular special events.

Things to do
Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens

The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens contain thousands of animal and plant species from around the world. The zoo features the continent's largest jaguar exhibit and the largest zoo aviary. One of the most popular exhibits is a wetland habitat that features many of Florida's native creatures, including animals that no longer reside in their natural wetland environments.


Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach and Atlantic Beach offer 22 miles of gorgeous sandy stretches. You can swim in the clear blue water of the Atlantic, or just relax with a good book. Other waterfront attractions include water sports and wildlife tours. This area is also home to the Adventure Landing theme park and the Shipwreck Island Waterpark.

Art Walk

On the first Wednesday of each month, the Art Walk proudly displays the contributions of the local creative community. The monthly event also features food, live music and an outdoor market. The event spans several blocks of Downtown Jacksonville.

Where to stay

Downtown Jacksonville hotels offer luxury and convenient access to many of the city's most popular attractions. Downtown accommodations can be more expensive than some other areas of the city, but many of the hotels offer a broader selection of modern amenities.


The Jacksonville beaches are home to a wide selection of accommodations. Charming bed and breakfast spots are available for guests who are seeking peace and quiet. Many hotels in the area offer direct beach access and stunning views of the ocean.

Riverside and Avondale

Riverside and Avondale are two of Jacksonville's historic districts. Residential structures dominate the area, but thriving commercial districts and elegant accommodations are also present. Many guests flock to Riverside and Avondale to enjoy the peaceful settings and the diverse architectural styles.

Travel information

The Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) serves its namesake city. Many of the nation's top airlines connect the airport to popular domestic destinations. The Jacksonville Airport Hotel and the Microtel Inn and Suites are located on the airport property. Other hotels in the area include Jacksonville Plaza Hotel and Suites, and Hyatt Place Jacksonville Airport.

Best time to stay

The summer months are perfect for beach fun in the sun, but that perfection will draw a very large crowd. Jacksonville is busy during the summer months, and hotels will charge high seasonal rates. The city is surprisingly cold during the winter months, so planning for outdoor activities can be tricky during that time. If all your plans feature indoor venues, you can find great hotel rates during the winter season.

The best times to stay in Jacksonville fall between the peak season and the winter slump. March, April and May offer mild temperatures and discounted hotel rates. Cool temperatures will occasionally occur during the spring months, so planning a few activities that do not revolve around the beach is advisable. The Jacksonville Jazz Festival will draw crowds in May, but most other venues will be relatively quiet. September and October feature warm days and cool evenings. The summer rush will be over, so visitors can enjoy the beaches and other attractions without battling the crowds or the travel season hotel prices.


La Quinta Inn & Suites Jacksonville Butler Blvd

Good Location. It’s not the Ritz but for the price

I stay here from time to time and the place is located in a good spot, it’s fairly cheap, and has great pool and Jacuzzi. It needs update but.. it’s not bad and there’s a lot around it.

Tricove Inn & Suites

Stay at TriCove

Nice, clean, comfortable bed. Friendly staff. Toilet was clogged and nearly overflowed. We reported it shortly after check-in. No one came! We called again later, and still no one came! At check-out we told the desk attendant again, and he shook his head and said, "Good to know." Not promising and very inconvenient for us.

Amelia Hotel at the Beach

great location, clean hotel

The location is great, right across from the beach and a nice restaurant with good seafood and live music at night. Check in was efficient , the room is spacious and clean though decorations are a dated. At least it doesn’t have a smell like older hotels. The beds are on the firm side but not uncomfortable. Housekeeping only does rounds once a day so on a couple days we got up late and request not to be disturbed , they didn’t come back later in the day to clean and change the sheets and towels. Included breakfast is basic with the usual continental fare. They always have water with lemon, cookies and coffee throughout the day at the lobby and dining area so I found that really thoughtful, especially after getting back from the beach. You can also puchase alcohol and other beverages at the reception desk. Parking is plenty and well-lit at night. Pool is small but did not get to use it so not sure if it was heated. Overall we had a good experience and price is very reasonable, considering location-wise, they’re better than the Marriot that was almost twice as expensive. I will definitely consider staying here again next time I get to visit Amelia Island.
