Naturally, when thinking of warm US states, Florida instantly comes to mind and one ideal beach destination is Jacksonville. Lying in northeastern Florida, Jacksonville is perfect to visit in the winter months after the scorching summer temperatures cool right down. On average, the mercury rarely dips below 64.5°F, even in October making for a comfortable getaway.
