The Best That Jacksonville Has to Offer

Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa

While everyone probably first thinks of Miami or Orlando when they think of Florida, did you know that Jacksonville is the largest city in population in Florida and the largest city in land area (874 square miles) in the contiguous United States. Situated a mere 25 miles south of Georgia and 340 miles north of Miami, Jacksonville provides both residents and visitors with a variety of entertainment options including sports and theater, and a variety of festivals throughout the year.

If you’re visiting Jacksonville for any of these reasons, then you might want to consider a stay at the 65-acre Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa resort in the Jacksonville Beaches area. Choose from standard guest rooms all the way up to one- and two-bedroom villas complete with a kitchenette and either a patio or balcony. Golfers will enjoy the privileged access to golf and who wouldn’t want to spend a day at the private Cabana Beach Club?
