Review of Jacksonville, Florida


Come here if you want to die inside
Star Rating - 1/1/2021
Jacksonville elite seem to like killing the things that make it interesting. From city council, influential investors, to the mayor, Jacksonville just seems to lack the vision and momentum to keep the good people around and the great projects going. So many projects have failed because, among many factors, of a lack of "mojo" - as one mustachioed influencer said of his fellow deep-pocketed people.

If it wasn't for the Avondale-Riverside area, this place would not be worth living in. Yes, you get decent weather for 6 months and a cheaper cost of living, but 90% of the city looks like Anywhere USA. Gas stations, fast food, and chain stores litter the majority of the city. Couple that with a depressing lack of culture, sloppy academics, and a continual grasping for "finding our city's DNA" and you have Jacksonville. The largest city with the smallest mind.

Wow riverside? You mean the area where the snobs live? When you mention shops and stores you mean easily accessible shopping areas? You live across the country but think you know JAX? Wrong!!!
