Jacksonville is located 110 miles (177 kilometers) from Dallas, a significant city in the United States of America.
While it may be a temptation to just kick back and relax while visiting Jacksonville, remember, Piney Woods' numerous scenic wonders await. You may also wish to check out Palestine, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northeast, and Larue 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southeast.
Around 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the north of Jacksonville is Tyler, an important regional center and the home of Tyler Museum of Art, Broadway Square Mall and Caldwell Zoo. Tyler Municipal Rose Garden Center and Museum, Pine Springs Golf Course and Discovery Place Museum are also good spots for investigating while you are in Tyler.
Spend a few hours exploring Piney Woods' history museums. These are great places to spend time, particularly when the weather is less than perfect.
Shore fishing and bird watching are just a few of the low stress activities in this area.
When booking your trip to Jacksonville, it's handy to remember that the handiest major airport, Pounds Regional Airport, is located in in Tyler, 30 miles (48 kilometers) away.
