Jacksonville is the largest city in Florida and offers a wide variety of activities and amenities. The city is serviced by the Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) and transfer from the airport to the meeting site/hotel can be arrange with prior notice. We hope to enlist local Fleet 55 members to assist with airport pick-ups and drop-offs.
We are currently making arrangements for a hotel. It is expected that the cost will be around $75-$95 per night for a private room. More information on hotel booking will be forthcoming.
