If you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of New York City, hop on a flight to Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) to experience the sweet Southern charm of Florida's largest city. Nestled on the St. John's River just 25 miles from the Georgia border, Jacksonville is a major hub with small-town appeal, that blends twinkling city lights with historic districts and nature preserves. Jacksonville operates America's largest urban park system for jogging through Hemming Plaza, touring the Jacksonville Arboretum, and watching a light show at Friendship Fountain.
Walking along the Jacksonville Riverwalk will take you to a number of attractions, including the Cummer Museum of Art, Bryan Gooding Planetarium and Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville.
To explore further, point your rental car north on Highway 17 to visit the Jacksonville Zoo, or Highway 23 to hike through the Thomas Creek Conservation Area. Driving east on Highway 90 will also take you to the white sand of Neptune Beach, Jacksonville Beach and Ponte Vedra Beach.
When traveling from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), it'll take around two hours to reach your destination. JAX has just one terminal building, so it's easy to find the baggage claim and rental car center on the lower level. Then, you can take Interstate 95 South and start your adventure in Jacksonville.
