Introduction to Jacksonville

The lower 48’s biggest city by area, Jacksonville weighs in at a whopping 840 sq miles. Of this expanse, the most interesting areas are the riverfront downtown, the Jacksonville beaches on the Atlantic coast, and, for our purposes, the campus of the University of North Florida, which is located on a natural preserve somewhere between the former two locations.
