Airport & Northside
Jacksonville International Airport, the city's Amtrak station and JAXPORT's Dames Point Cruise Terminal are located on the Northside.
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 ecotourism opportunity.
Just off I-95, the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens and the Budweiser Brewery are open for tours. You'll have a ton of options before the day is history. Speaking of history, there's another noteworthy stop to see on Jacksonville's Northside. Kingsley Plantation, within the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve offers visitors a glance back in time to the antebellum South.
