Jacksonville (often called Jax), is the largest city in the U.S. state of Florida in terms of both population and land area, and the largest city by area in the contiguous United States. Jacksonville is in the First Coast region of northeast Florida and is centered on the banks of the St. Johns River, about 25 miles (40 km) south of the Georgia state line and about 340 miles north of Miami. The Jacksonville Beaches communities are along the adjacent Atlantic coast. The city was named after Andrew Jackson, the first military governor of the Florida Territory and seventh President of the United States. Harbor improvements since the late 19th century have made Jacksonville a major military and civilian deep-water port. As with much of Florida, tourism is also important to the Jacksonville area, particularly tourism related to golf. Also swimming with the dolphins is a short distance away in St. Augustine, only 1 hour away from Jacksonville and Jacksonville
