Local Information

Welcome to Jacksonville! We say that Jacksonville offers all the "best" of Florida, and then add the "even better." We have the only north-flowing river in the Western Hemisphere. The St. John's River is as much as three miles wide in parts of Jacksonville, and as a deep-water port is home to boats ranging from ocean liners and aircraft carriers to canoes and windsurfers. Our ocean beaches are uncrowded and peaceful. Our people are courteous and friendly.

We call Jacksonville, Florida's Business City. It is a regional insurance and banking center, as well as home to a number of major corporations. Jacksonville is in the midst of economic and cultural growth complimented by increased community involvement. Each year many companies relocate to Jacksonville, with one of the major reasons being the affordable and pleasant lifestyle that their employees can find here.

It's no secret that metropolitan Jacksonville is one of the nation's fastest growing cities. Jacksonville is named the nation's number-one city for relocating and expanding companies by Expansion Management Magazine three times. Here you will find an efficient local government, a workforce 700,000 strong, no state income tax and no snow days.

Jacksonville Area by RENTCafe

Greater Jacksonville is well known for its great climate and great communities. The beaches throughout the Jacksonville area's coastline have created some of the best communities in the country.

Because of the mild climate, the beaches, and the 75 miles of water located within the city limits, Jacksonvillians spend a great deal of time outdoors. We are a sports minded city, in both spectator and participatory sports.

Jacksonville is the perfect spot for year-round outdoor activities. Whether you like golf, fishing, watersports, surfing, boating, relaxing at the beach, tennis, or spectator sports such as Jaguar football games; University of Florida sports, Florida state sports, and other universities are a short drive away.
