I’ve been there many times and have relatives there. What part of town are you looking at living in?

Hi! I live in Jax! I absolutely love it here. I’m from Fernandina and lived closer to Daytona for a few years. As soon as I moved back up here it was like a sigh of relief. People are so much nicer up here. Everyone will tell you that what they like about it here is that even though it is a city it has the feel of a smaller town. It is very easy to make friends. Since it is bigger there are so many pockets. OP is very much more family oriented, Ponte Vedra is an older crowd, Jax beach is younger and laid back where people ride their bikes to bars, Riverside is more of a hipster feel. We currently live on Southside and for right now I love it because we are close to a lot of things but would love to live in Avondale or San Marco eventually. Where are y’all moving from?

I know exactly where that is.  Are you looking at renting or buying a home?  The issue there is the traffic.  There’s a ton of townhomes in the Baymeadows area, but Southside gets really congested.  My relative that lives there spent 18 months shopping for a home.  East of the river, one neighborhood is great, the next one over is all rented/forclosures.  You definitely don’t want to live far from where you work in Jacksonville, unless you want to spent a lot of time driving in heavy traffic.

ksn1219 :  traffic on Southside isn’t that bad, especially compared to ATL. It does get backed up for an hour in the morning and again around 5. There are a lot of apartments in the area though I’m not sure of how many are furnished. Do you work? If you’re looking for a job we may be able to recommend some places for you.
