The 12 best things to do in Jacksonville

Jacksonville is known as a traditional business hub, but the city’s younger population is booming and hip neighborhoods are sprouting up across town. The water remains a draw for locals and visitors, with miles and miles of beaches and waterways. Some think of Jacksonville as a relatively young and transient city, but you’ll find many historic neighborhoods, buildings, and landmarks. There’s a wealth of fresh seafood to be enjoyed, as well as homestyle southern cooking. Jacksonville has plenty of ways to enjoy the outdoors as well as regional art and culture. Branch out and explore some of Jacksonville’s historic and up-and-coming neighborhoods, and of course hit the beaches for some sun, sand, and waves. Done something on this list and loved it?
