Jacksonville means many things to many different people. Maybe it’s because Jacksonville is the largest city by area in the contiguous United States. In fact, all of Duval County is considered Jacksonville.
The downtown area and neighborhoods have their own appeal. But nearby, you’ll find the oceanfront communities of Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach, Jacksonville Beach and Ponte Vedra Beach, the riverfront communities of Orange Park, Mandarin, Fleming Island and Fruit Cove, and suburban communities like Ponte Vedra, St. Johns, Palm Valley and Southside.
In short, there’s a lot to explore. Residents who enjoy a more urban lifestyle prefer the historic neighborhoods of Riverside and Avondale, San Marco and Murray Hill. Others enjoy the laid back lifestyle of the beaches communities. Still others like the convenience and proximity to shopping, schools and more in the more traditional suburban communities.
Whatever your style, there’s something to suit your taste in Jacksonville.
