Here are three reasons why I think Jax celebrates the Song of the South. Northerners aside, the Dixie influence permeates our culture with A, B, and C. We natives get it, y’all!

ATTITUDE:

Jacksonville folks are quick to reply with the cordial “yes ma’am, no sir, or bless your little heart.” They are just as likely to angrily remind New York Yankees, “the South will rise again!” Local gentlemen graciously defer to lady drivers in traffic, but if another guy cuts them off…River City Road Rage!

BARBEQUE:

For many years Jax has enjoyed the infamous distinction of having the most barbeque joints of any major city. Pork, beef and chicken connoisseurs can describe the delicate differences between Bono’s, Sonny’s and Jenkins. If you can name five or more barbeque sauces and your favorite day is ALL YOU CAN EAT RIBS, you live in Jacksonville.

CARS:

Want to know why there is so much congestion on our roads? There are more vehicles in Jacksonville than people! Drivers love their cars, trucks, SUVs and off-road vehicles, not to mention RVs, golf carts and motorcycles. Here driving is not a necessity, it is an adventure. Forget NASCAR!  I-10+I-95+I-295+JTB=Jacksonville Speedway.
