Located in the northeast corner of Florida along the Atlantic coast, the city of Jacksonville is home to over 800,000 people, anchoring a metropolitan area of over 1.3 million. Economically, Jacksonville is heavy on transportation and distribution, hosting the second largest deep-water port along the eastern seaboard. Jacksonville is also a surprising hub for the entertainment industries, both as a popular backdrop for location filming and for its local music scene, which has spawned such talents over the years as Pat Boone, Lynyrd Skynrd, Limp Bizkit and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. Jacksonville serves as a popular tourist spot for its outdoor activities, and boasts the largest urban park system in the U.S.
