Jacksonville is the 15th largest U.S. city by population but creates only the 47th largest U.S. television market. The city owns the largest outdoor park system in the United States. Youth are everywhere; the city populace has a median age of 35.
Jacksonville is divided into halves by the St. Johns River. The winters are cold but snowless. The summer is hot, with furious late afternoon thundershowers. There are lovely, cool, shortened fall and spring seasons.
The ark of Jacksonville's heritage of art is carried by two museums--The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, and MOCA Jacksonville--three collegiate art programs at Jacksonville University, the University of North Florida, and Florida State College at Jacksonville--and several longstanding private collections.
