ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the importance of Jacksonville, situated in northeastern Florida on the Atlantic coast, as a tourist spot. The city, spanning more than 840 square miles, has 68 miles of Atlantic Ocean coastline, 300 miles of rivers, more than 100 golf courses, the largest urban park system in the U.S., and a growing and vibrant downtown. Further, the newest exhibit at the Jacksonville Zoo is the "Range of the Jaguar," featuring the largest collection of jaguars in North America. The tropical-forest attraction is set in a Spanish-colonial themed village and temple ruin.
