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.

Gator with missing jaw finds home in Florida park

A Florida reptile park has taken in an alligator that lost its nose and upper jaw to a fight or boat propeller. Gatorland Orlando said over the weekend that the injured alligator came from a lake in nearby Sanford, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) northeast of Orlando. “She had basically no chance of surviving in the wild with such a severe injury,” the park said in a social media post.
