Although somewhat overshadowed by trendier cities like Orlando and Miami, Jacksonville - Florida’s most populated city - is rich in culture and tourist attractions that make it a destination spot all its own. While Jacksonville wasn’t initially known for any major sports teams, after the Jacksonville Jaguars joined the NFL as an expansion team in 1995, their home at EverBank Field has become a staple in the city (and even hosted the Super Bowl in 2005). Besides professional football, minor league teams can play at Veterans Memorial Arena, which also holds massive concerts throughout the year. The Jacksonville Jazz Festival is another beloved event, known as one of the best jazz fests in the nation and held over Memorial Day Weekend every year. For those looking to shop and dine out, take a stroll along the Northbank Riverwalk and eventually get to the Jacksonville Landing, where restaurants and stores are located.
