The Northside & Airport Neighborhoods

The Northside is close to the airport, shopping, attractions, and beautiful state parks and nature preserves.

Northside & The Airport

Three of Jacksonville’s main travel hubs –the Jacksonville International Airport, the Amtrak station and the JAXPORT Cruise Terminal, are located in this area. Dozens of hotels populate the Northside as well as the Cecil Commerce Center and several factories. Despite the high number of businesses in the area, the Northside is also very residential, with many historic neighborhoods. The River City Marketplace offers outdoor shopping from major retailers like BestBuy, Old Navy, and Bed Bath & Beyond plus plenty of dining options, including local favorite Firehouse Subs.

If you're looking for a way to quickly put the stress of travel behind you, head to the Talbot Island State Parks. Located just 20 miles northeast of the city, these parks provide a not-to be-missed nature adventure.

Just off I-95, the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens with their newest exhibit Land of the Tigers and the Budweiser Brewery that offers a free tour throughout the week. Jacksonville is not short on history options for you to choose from. Speaking of history, there's another noteworthy stop to see on Jacksonville's Northside. Kingsley Plantation and The Ribault Club  are within the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve offering visitors a glance back in time to the antebellum South. 

While you're here, don't miss these five Northside attractions.

Getting Here from Downtown: To reach the airport and the River City Marketplace, take I-95 north and exit on 363B/Duval Road. For the Zoo, take I-95 and exit on Zoo Parkway, this same road becomes Hecksher Drive and leads you into the Talbot Islands.
