Feedback

  • I appreciate all the work you did on the front end to deal with questions regarding the need of our members who have disabilities. I was surprised to have welcome package waiting at the Omni when I arrived. Thanks so much for everything.”~Michele Rusin, American Board of Rehabilitation Psychology, Inc.,

  • Feedback from attendees was ?Best ever reunion!" And it was our 19th!”~James Horn, USS Haynsworth

  • You guys were so very helpful ... one stop shopping made my work easier. I have never worked with a CVB that offered as much or was as attentive.”~Grace Taylor, CMC Recycling (Commercial Metals Company)

  • "With such a vast array of activities and sites, Jacksonville is a fantastic destination to explore."”~Patrice Raplee, Oct. 26, 2010

  • The Prime Osborn Convention Center is charming, the city is beautiful, and our group had nothing but highest praise for their experience there. To say that a miracle occurred from the time of the flood to the start of our conference is not a stretch, and the ‘Visit Jacksonville’ representatives were a huge part of that miracle. We could not have done this without them. Thank you-thank you-thank you!!!”~AAPC June 2010-Melanie Mestas, Conference Director

  • 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.

  • Growing Jax – A Guide to Our Regional Farmers Markets

    September 12, 2014 3:08 pm EDT

    According to critics, the most problematic feature of our region is the geographic size of Jacksonville. It’s just a really big city. If you drove from Baldwin in West Jacksonville, all the way to where Atlantic Boulevard dumps you on the ocean, it would take you almost an hour – and you would have never left the city limits of Jacksonville.
