Make a holiday apartment in Jacksonville your home away from home

Northeastern Florida is home to the spralling city of Jacksonville, where HomeAway.co.uk offers holiday rentals including apartments, houses and cottages. Holiday accommodation in Jacksonville is situated amid all you might expect from a Florida destination, including pools, golfing, boating, beaches and theme parks. Holiday apartments in Jacksonville typically include all the modern standards: Wi-Fi, washer/dryers, dishwashers, DVD players, cable/satellite TV, and of course, air-conditioning. Access for wheelchairs can be somewhat lacking in Jacksonville apartments, however, so do check with your HomeAway.co.uk representative before booking.

Things to do

-Beaches: Along with vast stretches of sandy shoreline, Jacksonville beach, offers boatloads of activities for all the family. Volleyball courts, a fishing pier, restaurants and a newly designed golf course are numbered among the attractions close by your Jacksonville rental accommodation. Dolphins are often seen frolicking among the waves well known by surfers.

-Watersports: As Florida's third largest seaport, and positioned at the mouth of St. John's River, the opportunity for aquatic fun is typified by the number of marinas and yacht clubs. Sailing and fishing are obviously big business, and the Intracoastal Waterway provides safety from dangerous sea conditions.

-Professional sports: With one major league and several minor league sports teams, there's the perfect opportunity in Jacksonville to experience the spectacle of American sport. The Jacksonville Jaguars are the NFL team with the 77,000 seat EverBank Field as their home stadium. Other sports to see include minor league baseball and basketball in the summer and winter respectively.

-Nightlife: There's more than one nightlife hub in Jacksonville, meaning you have numerous choices between raucous mayhem or quiet relaxation. The Beaches area caters to the laid back beachfront vibe, while the King Street area is more party-orientated. For relaxed conversation, try the growing Riverside Brewing District.

-Bayard Conservation Area: This untouched Florida riverfront is a bottomland floodplain, with deer and wild turkey flitting between the bald cypress, red maples and sweet gum trees. With 15 miles of nature trails, you can hike, mountain bike or horse ride to your heart's content. There are also two campsites if you feel like a quiet night in the woods.

Weather in Jacksonville

Jacksonville has the typical Florida climate of mild winters and hot summers, making this a great year round destination. Most of the rain falls in the summer months during the short, heavy cloudbursts typical of the tropics. Winter temperatures get into the 20s Celsius, while the summer heat maxes out at around 35 degrees C, meaning the winters actually approximate British summers.

Travel to Jacksonville

Jacksonville has its own international airport, which is tremendously convenient for a fly/drive holiday. Orlando could be a flight option too, at 160 miles away, and has the advantage of direct flights to Europe. So to use Jacksonville, you'll have to change planes at some point. Americans tend to shy away from public transport for some reason, so rail and bus facilities aren't what they could be. There is a Greyhound station in downtown Jacksonville, however, and there is a train station if you want to experience some ground travel.
