Review of Jacksonville, Florida

Lived here @ 1 year
Star Rating - 6/23/2006
Jacksonville is a fairly nice area, crime is like any other bigger city except for the higher murder rate this year.(stay out of the northwest side of the city and near the center) I would live outside the ring/road around the city either on the north east / east or south. It is growing and the housing market is still fairly strong, new stores are coming in and It is coming along. You have a NFL team and a Dodgers minor league baseball team as well as a hockey minor league team, good beaches and a lot of area golf... some festivals and concerts, can not comment on the night life.
It is a southern city and still has a good old boy feel.... I would prefer a more cultured area and a little more climate change but Jan/Feb are colder. Jacksonville Fl is not an Orlando or Tampa, this is not like either of those areas and more southern feel.
