Review of Jacksonville, Florida
I did not like Jacksonville
We moved from Tampa to Jacksonville - 1st mistake - Tampa has so much more to offer except for the higher homeowners rates for hurricanes.
We bought a house in Jacksonville, great house but poor location, luckily we sold it when we moved out of state....We did not want our daughter to go to any public schools there, the crime was very bad and the murders (normally confined to certain areas in most cities) seemed to be all over - no safe areas except in the south/ St Johns county. It was hot and muggy and there were bugs and snakes... but that is FL. My wife could not find a decent job and we did not want our daughter in any daycares after a worker gave TB to a child, I would never move back to Jacksonville and am glad I was able to get out... do yourself a favor and don't move there to begin with.
This is a backwards, redneck, dirty city, they refer to it as south Georgia for a reason.
