So Much to See and Do
Jacksonville turned 200 in 2022, so this place has had plenty of time to build a reputation for fun. The “Don’t Miss” options here include: The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens celebrating 60 years in 2022; MOSH the Museum of Science & History; and the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens (2,000 animals!). And don’t neglect surrounding cities: to the north is Fernandina Beach with 400+ historic homes and to the south, America’s oldest city — St. Augustine — plus
90 miles of Atlantic Ocean coastline for swimming, snorkeling, sailing, surfing and sunning.

A Great Place to Live and Work
WalletHub puts JAX among the top 25 best places to live in the U.S. And it’s even better if you’re a woman in tech. New York-based SmartAsset ranks Jacksonville No. 13 among 60 U.S. cities based on gender pay gap in tech and the percentage of the tech workforce who are women.
