North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia: We are with you. We understand the preparation, the fear, the wondering if you should stay or go. We know what it's like to leave with your family, or stay and be in boredom with days of rain stuck inside your home with kids even prior to the storm even hitting. We were just in this situation last year. And the year before. Please stay safe and know we are thinking of you.
If you have evacuated to Jacksonville, we want to host you during this time of stress and anxiousness and help families have some happiness in their days! Many entities have banded together to provide free or reduced rates to local attractions. Please see the deals below, help spread the word to family and friends who are here, and check back often as we hear about more specials and add them. Please also use our calendar for daily fun and deals as well as Fun Around Town to see what Jacksonville has to offer. We wish you the best that this Jacksonville visit can be and we hope our website can help you find fun in our town!
