"Jacksonville or JAX?" Top 5 Page for this destination General Orientation Tip by HSC123

General Orientation, Jacksonville: 2 reviews and 1 photos

"JAX" may be the official abbreviation for the city's international airport but it has also been embraced by locals as the city's nickname, much like "LA" or "NYC." Therefore, if you ask people how to get to JAX, don't be surprised if they say that you're already here! After all, the locals refer to the airport as JIA, not JAX. And, on this same note, if you hear someone refer to "Jax Beach," they are really talking about Jacksonville Beach.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
