Living in Jacksonville
Vivid sunsets, stunning ocean views, and one of the most affordable rental markets in Florida? Cha-ching! Welcome to Jax, a.k.a Jacksonville, where the sports fan, outdoor enthusiast, foodie, and art critic live side by side. Residents enjoy rooting for the Florida Gators, Seminoles, Suns, or Jaguars, relaxing at the beach, exploring the city's massive system of nature trails, and dining out at the latest riverwalk restaurants.
Jacksonville is the largest city in the continental U.S., with a total of 840 square miles. It's also home to the largest urban park system in the country—111,000 acres of parks, to be exact.
Weather wise, things couldn't look brighter! Because it's located in the northeast corner of Florida, Jacksonville is much less humid than Orlando and most other cities in Florida. Expect to be sitting poolside in February while your out-of-state friends are bundled up to brace the snow and ice.
