The unique culture of Jacksonville Beach has developed for over a century. Established in 1884, history and tradition make this destination more than just your average beach stay. Celebrations like the Opening of the Beaches are deeply rooted in the city at large, and Jacksonville's own flavor of Art Deco give the city a strong sense of place and an identity all its own.


Get in[edit]

By plane[edit]

  • Jacksonville International Airport (IATA: JAX) . Jacksonville International Airport is the primary commercial airport in Northeast Florida, with scheduled service offered by American Airlines, Delta Airlines, jetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines. The airport is located approximately 15 miles north of downtown. The airport has one terminal building, with ticketing on the upper "Departures" level and baggage claim and ground transportation on the lower "Arrivals" level. There are two areas for ground transportation, at the center front for taxis and area hotel shuttles, and at the north end (outside of Baggage Carousel 1) for Pre-Arranged Ground Transportation, including limousines, Rental Cars, intercity buses/shuttles, and local JTA city buses. Airline gates radiate from three concourses, A, B, and C which all funnel through one central security screening area. Generally arriving one hour before a flight's scheduled departure is plenty of time, but during major holidays, such as Thanksgiving, allow one and a half to two hours.
