If someone asked you if you wanted to visit the country's largest city by land area, you would probably start packing your bags for Los Angeles or New York City, or even Chicago, Houston or Atlanta. The only problem would be that those cities would not be where you are going. Instead, you would be on your way to Jacksonville Florida. You might also be surprised to know that after New York City and Philadelphia, Jacksonville is the most populated city on America's east coast. The city is also the financial and insurance hub of Florida and home to several U.S. Navy bases. Jacksonville travel has blossomed in recent history, and the city is well served by a number of Interstate Highways and major U.S. Highways. The newly added cruise port has joined three other modern seaport facilities to help establish Jacksonville as a shipping giant. The city is also well served by the Jacksonville International Airport, which lies just a 15-minute ride from downtown. Travelers can find a flight to Jacksonville from most major American cities, and popular Orlando is just 45 minutes away by air.
Jacksonville Florida rests just 25 miles south of the Georgia border and enjoys positioning along the St. Johns River. It was founded in the year 1791 as a settlement, originally carrying the name of Cowford, due to the fact that cattle were previously driven along the area. In 1822, the city changed its name to honor seventh President Andrew Jackson, who had served as the Florida Territory's first military governor. Due to its prime location, however, Jacksonville had already had a long history before then. In the early 1560's, the area of present day Jacksonville was settled by French explorers who established Fort Caroline there. However, this settlement attempt would be short-lived. Spanish forces would go on to obliterate the French fort, effectively ending French colonization attempts along the New World's east coast.
Jacksonville Florida earned a reference as the "Winter Film Capital of the World" in the 1910's, as over 30 silent film studios made their bases there. Jacksonville's film heyday may have passed when film makers made their eventual moves to Hollywood, California, but film fans will still enjoy the Jacksonville Film Festival, which takes place in May. The city also hosts the nation's second largest jazz festival every year in April. Jacksonville travel is ideal year round, with temperate weather in the winter, pleasant spring and fall temperatures and hot summer days that are ideally spent at the wide and sandy Jacksonville area beaches. The city is surrounded with natural beauty, offering nature trails for walking and wildlife watching and plenty of water to explore whether fishing or simply pleasure-cruising. Visitors to this great southern city will find ample choices among Jacksonville hotels ranging from upscale area resorts to charming Florida bed & breakfasts. Jacksonville Florida dining certainly features fresh seafood from the nearby Atlantic, but you'll also find plenty in the way of savory steaks and southern-fried chicken.

Visitors to northeast Florida will find plenty of options for things to do in Jacksonville, including various cruises within the city, an array of museum options, fine Florida beaches, the country's largest urban park system and so much more. In nearby Ponte Vedra, golf enthusiasts will find the most recognizable of all Florida golf courses, TPC at Sawgrass. This famous course joins an array of other quality golf courses in the area to make a golfing vacation here ideal. In fact, the PGA tour makes its headquarters in nearby Ponte Vedra, and golf fans can find the World Golf Village and the World Golf Hall of Fame in nearby St. Augustine. St. Augustine is just a half-hour's drive away, and other exciting day trips from Jacksonville could include Daytona Beach, the Kennedy Space Center, Savannah, Georgia and Florida's beautiful Amelia Island.
Jacksonville travel further rewards visitors with other attractions, such as the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, the Jacksonville Landing shopping center, the Riverwalk and Jacksonville Beach.

Jennifer exceeds expectations. Not only is she an expert in the real estate sales arena, her network of contacts for all things related is impressive. The quality of her work and those she recommends is exemplary. We can not speak highly enough of her. We look forward to working with her in the future and recommend her to our friends.
Jennifer receives 5 out of 5 stars in all categories Local Knowledge ***** Process expertise ***** Responsiveness ***** Negotiation skills ***** Choosing Jennifer Crawford as my realtor for the short sale of my home turned out to be an excellent decision. Jennifer is an outstanding, intelligent and very professional realtor. This was a very stressful time in my life with a divorce followed by the short sale of my home and Jennifer handled every aspect of the sale with high degree of skill. Jennifer went over and above the call of duty by watching the home for me when I relocated and she even collected my mail and arranged to have the lawn mowed. Jennifer even talked me down from a few trees so to speak as I stressed out over this and that associated with the short sale and for that I am very thankful. If you are buying or selling a home and Jennifer is available to be your realtor and you do not choose her then "you need to have your head examined" it is just that plain and simple.

"I had just moved to Jacksonville and was a first time home buyer, so the thought of dealing with the whole Real Estate experience made me a little apprehensive. But Jennifer's outgoing nature and friendly demeanor helped make it an enjoyable as well as a learning experience. She explained the details of the home buying process to me and was patient with my questions. I would definitely recommend her to anybody looking to buy their next house."
"My wife and I retained the services of Jennifer Crawford to sell our house at 3113 Peach Drive earlier this year. We could not have been more pleased with her help; professionalism and unending dedication towards assisting us in obtaining a buyer. Despite the market fluctuation that negatively impacted the market, she was still able to sell our house at a fair market value and make the transaction move very efficiently. Her cheerful personality did wonders to quell our fears and concerns throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend her to our entire group of friends and will certainly use her as our agent in any real estate transactions in the future. We cannot thank her enough for the tireless hours she put in to make this happen."
Robert & Linda Arcusa
Jennifer, thank you so much for taking good care of my friends Traver and Aimee. They are very excited and have explained that you have been a godsend. Thank you again. I can’t tell you how happy this experience has made them and myself for referring them to you!
Sincerely, Bryan Quinn
”We were relocating back to Jacksonville from Texas and flew into Jacksonville for 7 days of house hunting. We connected with Jennifer on the 3rd day through one of her listings.She did a great job and found us a house.We made an offer just before flying back to Texas.She worked with us through the negotiating process via phone, fax and e-mail.When we reached an agreement she arranged inspections, referred us to contractors and arranged for repair work to be done.
She made our buying experience so easy that when our daughter decided to buy her first home we immediately called Jennifer.Our second purchase went as smoothly as the first and we continue to recommend her to friends and family for their Real Estate needs.”
Rick and Kathy Christopher
We just want to thank you for all your time and effort! You truly did an amazing job! You made us feel comfortable from Day 1! You are Greatly Appreciated!
Your the BEST!!!
When I think of Jennifer Crawford, three words come to mind. Excellence, Diligence, and Professionalism. When Jennifer gets to work on selling your home she will do her job with extreme excellence, taking note of all the smallest details. Once she begins to work for you she diligently uses every single tool available to her to market and sell your home. She is an excellent negotiator and will get you top dollar for your home. Everything she does she does with the essence of a consummate professional, communicating all along the way. Jennifer truly stands out in the crowd and is in the top 1% among all Realtors in our area.
I highly recommend her to anyone wanting a highly skilled Realtor to sell their home for optimum dollar in the least amount of time with the least amount of stress.
My wife and I were recently considering selling our house and consulted with Jennifer Crawford. After carefully listening to our current situation, Jennifer shared her perspectives with us and highly suggested that it would be better for us to rent our house rather than sell it. We appreciated her honesty, and based on her wise evaluation, we came into agreement with her and have much more peace. Thanks so much, Jennifer, for your integrity in putting our best interest ahead of yours.
Jennifer Crawford is the best realtor I have EVER laid eyes on!!!!!! My family was struggling with finding the RIGHT realtor. My husband called Jennifer on a Saturday and she found us the most PERFECT house the same day! My family viewed the dream home the next day and the seller accepted our offer the SAME day!! Jennifer is a warm, good-spirited, sympathetic, and very professional. Her expertise of the real estate market is outstanding and she is competent! She will work for you and not give you the "run around" or make needless excuses. My family now has a home to go to because of Jennifer Crawford. Jennifer saved my family from a lot of pain and stress because of her diligence, skills, etc. I can go on and on about Jennifer's hard work, compassion, etc. Jennifer Crawford is the best and I will recommend her to other potential home buyers!
