The sprawling city of Jacksonville is not only Florida's most populous city, but also the largest city by land area in the continental United States. Although much of fast-paced Jacksonville is distinctly urban, with massive high-rises and corporate headquarters, the city also features some historic neighborhoods, wildlife preserves, world-class golf courses, and beaches just a short drive from downtown. The city's numerous museums and galleries provide cultural entertainment, while the setting of St. Johns River, the Atlantic Ocean, and the nation's largest urban park system provide plenty of options for things to do outdoors. Plan your tour of Jacksonville and United States travel itinerary using our United States trip planner.
