Star Rating - 9/9/2021
I have lived here for 5 years and Jacksonville keeps getting better and better. After living in multiple areas in Jax I have figured it out. Like most large cities there are good areas and bad areas. Jax is a huge massive city land wise. I would say 40% of Jax is low income high, crime, and neglected "Bad" areas. These are near downtown on the Westside, Downtown on the eastside north of stadium, alot of east arlington, near St Nicholas... These areas are lower income or economically disadvantaged. Generally speaking the majority of the entire west side of jacksonville is lower income or lower middle class. Where is the best places to live then? If your family is making near or over 6 figures you would enjoy buying in a middle to upper middle class area you should consider Bartram, Communities in St Johns County, Mandarin, The Beaches Jax Beach, Neptune Beach, Atlantic Beach, Ponte vedra Beach, Generally anything East of 295 beltway toward the beach.
Other options include more historic areas like Avondale, Riverside, Ortega, maybe Spring Field. Single Young professionals should consider The Beaches, Brooklyn, Riverside. Young Families should consider Bartram, Mandarin, or communities in St Johns County like Silverleaf, River Town, Nocatee, Beach Walk, Shearwater, North Jacksonville (Oceanwayish) Near Airport Generally anything east of 295 beltway, Anything near St Johns Town Center. Hope this helps! Knowing this will change your entire experience in Jax
