Good views from all seats. Wide walkways around seating entrance ways and adequate restrooms, food and souvenir stalls. Traffic cleared well. We arrived via the street with the County jail. It was very backed up, try a different way.

Jacksonville is starting to get big name artists and performances. This venue is very comfortable and most seats are great. I sat one time in the 300 level (or whatever the top tier is). Those are too high!
