We at Get Ranked on Page One, are extremely proud of our hometown, Jacksonville, Florida.

I’ve always referred to Jacksonville as a “hidden gem.”

For most visitors to Florida, Jacksonville is invisible and unknown. To them, the state doesn’t really start until south of the “I-4 corridor,” which is the line that connects Daytona Beach, Orlando, and the Tampa/St. Pete area.

However, in my opinion, these visitors have no idea what they’re missing.

Let me start off with a few interesting facts about our great city.

  • Jacksonville is the largest city in the continental United States, with over 840 square miles?
  • Jacksonville has the largest urban park system in the United States, consisting of over 400 city parks, 3 national parks, and seven state parks, totaling over 80,000 acres! There are several major parks located on the beautiful St. John’s River, which bisects Jacksonville, and you can enjoy beach activities at oceanfront parks.
  • Jacksonville has two major military bases, Mayport Naval Station, located at the mouth of the St. John’s River, and Jacksonville Naval Air Station, located on the west bank of the St. John’s River, southwest of downtown Jacksonville.
  • The majestic St. John’s River is one of the few rivers in North America that flows north instead of south.
  • The Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, was established at Jacksonville Naval Air Station in 1946, and, to honor that fact, perform in the Jacksonville area every year, alternating between venues at the Jacksonville Naval Air Station and Jacksonville Beach.
