Visiting Jacksonville on Business?

So, your conference or work trip is bringing you to Jax… not sure what to do after your work session? Well, great news! Jacksonville comes alive after the work day ends!

Map Out a Foodie Tour

Once your hotel is booked, map out a Foodie Tour. Who travels and doesn’t try to scarf down the most delicious and unique foods that aren’t available in their own city? All our neighborhoods are packed with award-winning local restaurants.

Head to The Beach

Have a few hours to kill? Visit one of our local beaches. Cop a lounge chair and take a relaxing nap or get active. There are several beach rental vendors where you can enjoy surfing, paddle boarding or bicycling.

Find A Happy Hour Spot

After a long work session, refresh and prepare for an evening in Jacksonville. Happy hour hot-spots and craft breweries surround local hotels in Downtown, the Southside and the Beaches area. Enjoy unique craft cocktail bars or lounge at one of our cigar bars.

Explore the Arts

Maybe, just maybe, you aren’t quite the party-animal. Maybe you are a connoisseur of fine art and music. You have plenty of options too. We have world-class museums and many of them offer daily events and tours. Our Jacksonville Symphony is ranked pretty high in the Southeast. Check out our events calendar, it is the best place to start your arts and culture itinerary.

Family Activities

Do you have the option to bring your family along? They can explore a great deal while you are tucked away in your meeting or conference sessions. Start by checking out our Family Fun page.

Outdoor Activities and Fitness

Let’s not forget your fitness goals while traveling. Here is your Get Active Guide. Our parks have trails for hiking, biking and running. You can find an affiliate gym for your current membership. You can also join a pop-in class of dance or yoga or run our bridges.

You are not going to want to rush back home after your Jax work trip is done!
