Climate & Geography
When it comes to state mottos, Florida delivers and Jacksonville helps keep that promise. Nestled in the most northeast corner of the Sunshine State, Jacksonville enjoys an average of 220 days of sunshine each year.
Pleasant and hot summer temps set the stage for beach and water activities, while evenings are right for a barbecue or camping. In the winter, residents comfortably hike, golf or relax with any number of outdoor activities thanks to mild temperatures.
Four of seven Jacksonville-area counties border the Atlantic Ocean, while more central locales offer endless waterways, parks (urban and national), wetlands and greenways. On the strand or inland, Jacksonville’s climate and geography never disappoint.
