As opposed to the land-locked Jacksonville International Airport (JAX), LaGuardia Airport (LGA) is surrounded mostly by water, including the Flushing Bay and the East River. The roads that surround LGA offer its visitors quick access to New York City proper, as well as much of the Southeastern parts of the state, including Pelham Bay Park. Shea Stadium and Citi Field are both a short drive to the southeast, and many airport hotels can be found on 144th Street.
Once you land at LGA you should consider picking up a rental car to make travel easy, hop on Grand Central Parkway, which is the primary route from LaGuardia. Grand Central will get you to Queens, Manhattan and New Calvary Cemetery; which was established more than 150 years ago. If you take the Grand Central Parkway to Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, you are less than a mile east of one of New York's most recognizable attractions: Central Park.
The flight from Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) to LaGuardia is roughly 2 hours long. During the approach into LaGuardia, visitors have a birds-eye view of the infamous Rikers Island. LaGuardia also has a variety of in-terminal shopping options where you can find a wide range of food choices, and other essentials you may need during your stay in NYC.
