Jacksonville Holidays

Get inspiration

JACKSONVILLE TRIP? NO TROUBLE.

Jacksonville – or Jax as it’s affectionately known to the locals – is a year-round destination, thanks to its great location in northeast Florida. Holidays to Jacksonville promise variety and excitement, thanks to the city’s vast array of green spaces, rolling beaches and great dining scene. And this place is a one-stop-city for natural wonders and adventure, with options to suit everyone.

There are so many things to do on a Jacksonville holiday. If you’re a lover of the great outdoors, you can take your pick from the city’s 10 state and national parks, where there are loads of hiking trails. Or, if you’d prefer a more relaxed getaway, flop down on to one of Jacksonville’s stunning beaches – they stretch for 20 miles. If you’re taking the kids, head to MOSH!, the Museum of Science and History – one of the city’s top attractions – or get up close and personal with wildlife at the Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary. Jacksonville holidays are perfect for families, as this place is one of the best-value destinations in Florida.

Looking to immerse yourself in arts and culture? No problem. You can stroll around Jacksonville’s galleries, visit historic sites, or watch one of the city’s many live shows. Get your retail fix when you browse the shopping malls, antique stores, flea markets or shopping districts. Areas like San Marco, Beaches and Avondale offer trendy, upscale boutiques, while the eclectic Five Points and Southside areas serve up vintage treasures. For the latest fashions, stop by Avenues Mall or the outdoor shopping Mecca of St. Johns Town Center. Or, if you’re searching for tasty treats, hop between stalls at one of the many local farmers markets.

Whatever you’re looking for, a holiday to Jacksonville ticks all the boxes. And you can easily see more of Florida during your trip – why not go beach-hopping down the Gold Coast or spend a fun-filled week in Orlando? Speak to our Travel Specialists to find out more.
