Jacksonville is a modern and active city with equal parts Florida Flavor and Southern Hospitality! As the largest city in the continental U.S., Jax is the perfect place for a weekend getaway or a vacation to explore and discover something new, from its extensive park system (the largest in the nation with two national parks, seven state parks, and more than 400 city parks), to its beautiful white-sandy beaches (22 miles of them), and its historic neighborhoods that include Riverside, Avondale, Downtown, Jacksonville, Springfield and Murray Hill.

Ready to give directions, answer questions, provide assistance, or walk you to your destination, the Downtown Ambassadors are Jacksonville's Downtown cleanliness, safety and hospitality team. The Ambassadors are an extra set of eyes and ears on the street and work closely with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and the city to improve Downtown Jacksonville.
Ambassadors are easily identified in their bright orange polo shirts and pith helmets as they walk and bike throughout Downtown Jacksonville, day and night. The Downtown Ambassadors began operation in October 2001, and have made a tremendous impact on Downtown.
