  • Jacksonville, referred to by locals as Jax, is the largest city in the U.S. area-wise so it's too big to see in a day. Allot enough time.
  • Downtown is walkable and there are Downtown Ambassadors around the downtown area. Look for people wearing orange shirts or jackets and patrolling on bikes or on foot. They are there 7 days a week to answer questions, provide an escort or help you in any situation.
  • The Jaguars reign supreme in Jax, so avoid the Everbank Field on football game days unless you are going to a game.
  • Jacksonville has the nation's largest urban park system so there is always a nearby spot for a picnic if you desire.
  • Like any large city there are parts of the city best not visited alone at night. Use reasonable caution when strolling streets after dark.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
