Jacksonville Attractions

Jacksonville, Florida's First Coast with its miles of beaches remain relatively unspoiled and unfenced. The Beaches communities of Atlantic Beach, Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach and Ponte Vedra Beach offer some of the best sport fishing, boating and water sport opportunities in the country. A stroll along the beach might yield a collection of seashells, a view of porpoise and northern right whales that cavort off the coast, or merely the relaxed state of mind that ocean waves can foster. Mayport Naval Station is home to many U.S. ships, including aircraft carriers. Many shrimp boats drag their nets in the waters of the St. Johns River and the Atlantic Ocean from the docks of Mayport.
