A holiday in the sprawling city of Jacksonville provides access to a wide variety of activities and entertainment options. In order to take full advantage of these opportunities, renting a holiday villa, condo or apartment in or near Jacksonville is the number one option. A holiday rental allows you to maintain full control of what you do and when, as well as very possibly saving you money on the combined cost of your holiday.
The Jacksonville Beach area is actually a small town just outside the main city. A certified clean beach, Jacksonville beach affords more than four miles of beautiful sand on which to sunbathe, swim, or engage in ball or other fun beach games. A day spent at the beach allows you to enjoy a family picnic, prepared earlier at your holiday rental accommodation. There is also a pier where fishing is a popular activity and permits are available at a very modest fee.
Golf in Jacksonville
One of the biggest reasons people go to Jacksonville on holiday is to take advantage of the area’s many magnificent golf courses. Although many of the courses are private, there are equally more than enough public courses to provide a wide variety of opportunities and challenges. The Cimarrone and Julian Creek golf courses are both within a couple of miles of Jacksonville city centre and represent the perfect opportunity to fit a round of golf in to an otherwise busy day. Particularly where you are renting a car for the duration of your Jacksonville holiday, however, the courses within easy travelling distance are more than plentiful.

Jacksonville boasts two major shopping malls, as well as endless opportunities around the city for those looking simply to browse what is available or purchase a lasting memento or two of their Jacksonville holiday.
