Welcoming over six million travelers through its terminals each year, Jacksonville International Airport is the perfect place to touch down, if you’re wanting to explore the adventurous offerings of one of Florida’s best tourist spots.
Jacksonville, or ‘Jax’ as it’s known to the locals, is home to a unique ecosystem of stretching sandy beaches, lush greenery, enviable fishing spots, colorful street art, and unrivaled coastal cuisine.
