JACKSONVILLE, Fla. June 17, 2019 -- Visit Jacksonville has partnered with News4JAX for the voter-centric campaign “JAX BEST.” This local guide to all the best local attractions and businesses that make Jacksonville unique will be created by residents voting for their favorite businesses in multiple categories throughout the year. Those who win the title of “JAX BEST” will be promoted locally and in key tourism markets by News4JAX and Visit Jacksonville.

“Visit Jacksonville makes the perfect partner for the JAX BEST promotion because it is our mission to promote the best that Jacksonville has to offer to the world every day, so who better to help us find those top options than our local residents,” said Michael Corrigan, CEO & President of Visit Jacksonville. “We invite Jacksonville to watch WJXT and WCWJ for updates on the JAX BEST campaign, vote and help us choose the best attractions, parks, breweries, museums and experiences available in Jacksonville. We want the people that live here to help us spread the word on their favorite places in Jax!”

The JAX BEST campaign kicks off June 17 and will run for an entire year with new categories to vote on monthly. The first 10 categories include: Best Breweries, Trails, Dog Parks, Public Art, Coffee, Fishing Charters, Surf Spots, Animal Encounters, Golf Courses and Water Sports Rentals. Go to to vote now.

“We’re extremely excited to be working with Visit Jacksonville to create the ultimate guide of all the best things our great city has to offer,” said WJXT and WCWJ Vice President and General Manager Bob Ellis. “The best local spots chosen entirely by local people is what makes this the definitive ‘Best of’ list. We can’t wait to unveil it.”

46% of the people that come vacation in Jacksonville are here visiting a friend or relative. The more our locals know about what is going on in Jacksonville, the better experience our visitors will have.
