Where to Live in Jacksonville

by mlp2873

Hi, my husband and I are moving to Jacksonville, and I wanted to know if anyone had an idea on where we should buy a house. My husband will be going to grad school in Gainesville,and I will be working in the zip code 32118. I heard that the west side of jacksonville is not ideal, does anyone have any suggestions for a nice area without a heavy commute?

Re: Where to Live in Jacksonville

32118 is Daytona Beach (89 miles from Jax). Did you make a typo?

Gainesville is 68 miles from Jacksonville.

Looks like you have to do a lot of driving.
The South side of Jacksonville is fine to live (North side has the Airport, East side has the popular beaches and you had your doubts about the West side).

Have a look at: http://www.jacksonville.com/discover/2004/

Also confused about the zip code. Regardless, check out this web site - it has a pull-down menu on the left for the surrounding zip codes with LOTS of info about the area including crime, school ratings, and average home prices:

Orange Park on the south side of Jax is nice.

Re: Where to Live in Jacksonville

by iluvtrvl

Jacksonville is the largest geographic city in the US.....Orange Park, Middleburg would be a good starting place for you. Fleming Island, a community bordering Orange Park, is very much like a small town in itself. You will be a good 45 minutes to an hour and a half from the beach, and if you are traveling to downtown Jacksonville for work, well, you can expect 45 minutes to an hour as well. Some parts of the West Side are OK, look for newly developed areas.

I am sorry. The zip code is 32218

Re: Re: Where to Live in Jacksonville

32219, that makes sence.

It's at the North side of town; here's the map:

If you decide to live at the South-side, you have to commute that half circle twice a day.
I think your husband and you have the aim for equal travel times.

Do you have to work there? Seriously, Gainesville is light-years ahead of Jax or its suburbs in quality of life.

I have no idea what kind of career you've got going, but if it's at all possible, my recommendation is to find work in Gainesville and live there.

Hanna Park. Located right next...

by CaffineFreak

Hanna Park. Located right next to the Naval Base this is a hugh national trust park, with some great beaches, camping is allowed for a nominal fee. I would recomend that a night stay sould be somthing well worth considering if with a group of people.

Fine riverfront dining with a fabulous view

by noidiotsplease about Ruth's Chris Steak House (2 locations)

This reknown upscale steak house chain has two Jacksonville locations (Downtown Southbank and Ponte Vedra Beach) to satisfy discriminating tastes. While I have not been to the Ponte Vedra location, the Downtown restaurant is absolutely fabulous! Connected to the Hilton & Towers right on the Southbank Riverwalk, patrons get to enjoy views of the river and downtown skyline while indulging in some of the most choice steak around. Very romantic atmosphere! They also have great desserts. Just be sure you're ready to shell out the big bucks. Mmmm... Steak!

Great for kids

by kristy29

This is a very nice museum for the kids. Great place to go on a hot or rainy day. They especially loved the play room in the lobby, and the movie in the planetarium. Also great is the laser light shows at night. They have different music, I've seen Aerosmith and Pink Floyd. You sit in the planetarium and wear 3D glasses, and while the music plays, they show different lasers on the screen. it's pretty cool, and they have one for kids during the day, too.

Gateway to Florida

by Varu

Welcome to my Jacksonville travel page. I've been living in Jacksonville for almost all my life. Jacksonville is the largest in city according to landwise. Emcompassing at least 10 wards each having their own distinct character. Northside, Southside, Westside, Beaches, San Marco, Mandrain, Orange Park just to name a few. Each of these areas has a little bit of everything. If you looking for a place that has beautiful beaches, great places for camping, fishing, and hunting then jacksonville is the perfect place for you. It's also home the Players championship for all you golf fans and only an hour away from St. Augustine for you history buffs looking to learn more about the oldest city in the United States.
