Receive a Hero’s Welcome in Jacksonville NC
Welcome to Jacksonville, NC, home to the largest U.S. Marine Corps base on the eastern seaboard. Located halfway between Wilmington NC and New Bern, NC on the Carolina coast, our team’s goal is to welcome you and make your visit here the best it can be. Whether you’re traveling for work or coming for fun, we are here to provide information and highlight the ways you can make every stay memorable. In Jacksonville, we celebrate and serve the heroes of the world—everyday and extraordinary—including you.
Fish, paddle, cruise or play in our coastal community. Guests come from all over for sporting events and our Grand Prix running challenges. Others come to remember and touch our memorials. Dine at an extraordinary selection of restaurants and sample some of the coast’s best ethnic cuisine. Our brand-name hotels offer great value, usually booking well below $150/night--and they’re only 30 minutes from the beach and just minutes from the New River. For more information, we invite you to explore at www.VisitJacksonvilleNC.com. On our website, you’ll also be able to download our visitors guide. We look forward to seeing you soon.
