Feedback

  • Because of your efforts, we are in a much better position to negotiation with our vendors who share our goals and objectives.”~Ann Koralewski, Meeting Planner, Div. of Continuing Education, University of Florida

  • "Typical reaction after a visit here: 'Geez, Jacksonville is cooler than I thought." ”~Diane Bair/Pamela Wright, Feb. 13, 2011

  • We all loved the area, it was beautiful and interesting and we are planning on coming back.”~Ellie O'Neill, Diamond Tours

  • Visit Jacksonville has provided numerous services in planning in this wonderful city - definitely a world class CVB.”~Ceci Shirley, Aviation Accreditation Board International

  • I was in Jacksonville, Florida this week for the AAPC annual Conference. I wish to commend American Coach Lines for the excellent service provided during the Conference. I was so impressed that there was a live person in front of the Crowne Plaza on Monday morning to make sure we had prompt service to the Convention Center. The service back and forth each day was extremely prompt and the drivers were so courteous. Everyone I heard talking about the service made positive comments - I never heard one negative remark about the service during the entire Conference. I have been to other conferences where shuttles were involved and I have never experienced the excellent service provided in Jacksonville. KUDOS for an excellent job. Thank you so much. Please pass this on to everyone involved. They deserve to know what a wonderful job they did. ”~Marty Sloop, AAPC June 2010

  • Think pink!

    July 30, 2014 5:02 pm EDT

    When you think of a pink bird, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? For most people, it would be a flamingo. The flamingo is a very beautiful (and very pink) bird, but it is not a local species to say the least. Lucky for us, we have our own species of pink bird wading in our North Florida waters!

  • Fort Clinch Offers ‘Step into the Past,’ Great Eco-Adventure

    May 29, 2014 4:56 pm EDT

    “What a strange looking bird!” exclaimed the bearded man as we looked up at the helicopter flying overhead. It was a beautiful day in July and we were standing outside. I was wearing a sundress that came down to my knees and he was decked out in a woolen long-sleeved uniform. In JULY… In Florida. This was right after he called me a “jezebel,” no less.
