If you'd like to take a big city vacation and do plenty of exploring and golfing, then you might already have planned to visit the sprawling city of Jacksonville, Florida. This city is much like the other Floridian cities of Miami and Orlando in terms of great, almost tropical weather and beaches, but much bigger and with more of a mellow feel, with still plenty to do and see. You don't need to skip out on a trip to this great city if you need oxygen therapy, not with our great deals on portable oxygen concentrator rentals.
Start planning ahead for your trip by calling your airline if you will be flying with oxygen, and find out what their requirements are for bringing a portable oxygen concentrator aboard the airplane. They will most likely want a statement from your doctor, and they will want you to bring a specific amount of extra battery power for your flight. After you gather this information, which you should do no less than 2 weeks before your flight, you can contact us to pick out your rental package, and exactly how many batteries you will need for the trip.
Even if you are just driving to the city, you will need to think ahead. Make sure your chosen concentrator will be able to charge and run on your car's battery so you can conserve battery power in your concentrator itself. Have your battery tested, and be sure to address this with the sales rep when you order your rental. He or she will help you sort out the details and have your rental oxygen concentrator shipped to you right in time for your trip.
The best time of year to visit Jacksonville, is in the spring time, before all of the high heat and humidity. You don't want to go in early fall because of the threat of severe thunderstorms, hurricanes or tropical storms, and it gets too chilly in late fall and winter to enjoy the beaches and other outdoor activities. The middle of the summer gets hot and humid enough to irritate the lungs of someone with COPD, and possible cause your portable oxygen concentrator to not work as well. April and May see average temperatures in the low 80s and a much lower chance of rain and storms. Perfect golfing weather.
When you're out and about, make sure your batteries are charged up, and go visit the Catty Shack Ranch, a wildlife sanctuary specifically for big, endangered cats. While the weather is nice, take a stroll down the paths of the beautiful Little Talbot Island State Park, with its 2 miles of beach and nature scenery. Big Talbot State Park is just as breathtaking and pristine.
You can't leave without seeing a show at the famous Alhambra Dinner Theater, but if you want a more casual setting, the Maple Street Biscuit Company is one of the best restaurants in Jacksonville. With your portable oxygen concentrator at your side in its carry bag or toted behind you in its lightweight and easy-to-maneuver cart, you won't need to worry about how you will get from here to there. Just plan ahead for maximum fun and convenience.
