Moving to Jacksonville

by Jbeckton

Im a college student currently living in Detroit. I am thinking about moving to Jacksonville but find it really hard to judge a good location. I spent a couple of years living in Myrtle beach and know that traffic in these vacation destinations can get rediculus so I would like to be in a place that is as central as possible to the places that I will cummute to the most like downtown, UNF and the Beach. I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion as to what neighborhoods would suit the needs of a person like me. Im not rich, but I certianly do not want to live in the ghetto. And realisticly, how long would it take to get from downtown to the beach?

I think the south side of Jax is the best for you. As far as I know the University has a big branch that is also located there somewhere. And you have the biggest mall in the area. Jax beaches is a 45 minutes drive.

I live in J'ville, within a couple of miles of UNF. Not sure what your budget is, but if you are looking east of UNF, it will cost you. There are many, many apartment complexes in this area. Fortunately, J'ville and its beaches are not commercialized like Myrtle Beach, so the tourist traffic is a minimum. You might look in the Southside Blvd area for housing that is less expensive than east of UNF. However, east of UNF, south of Atlantic Blvd., is a generally good area for ammenities, low rate of crime and diversity of activities, if you can spring for the higher rent. From UNF, you are 15 minutes or less to the beach, and 20 - 30 minutes to downtown.

I guess that with that kind of traffic, it wold be better for me to be a bit west of UNF so I could be closer to downtown. Are the arlington and southside neighborhoods decent? I am looking online and almost all of the palces are located a bit east of jacksonville university and down in the san jose area. Are these bad places? and are they too far from the beach and city?

Re: Re: Moving to Jacksonville

Southside and Arlington are generally OK. They are older neighborhoods, but have a good mix of age and ethnic groups with established commercial activity to support the neighborhoods. You would be more centrally located to UNF, the beaches and downtown in Southside and Arlington vs. San Jose, which is farther from both UNF and the beaches. To get from downtown to toes in the sand, 30 minutes on the average, again depending on time of day and traffic. You are only talking about 15 miles max, from the center of downtown to the beaches.

Travel Tips for Jacksonville

Bell South Tower -- a study in angles

by noidiotsplease

Tapered with a series of visually appealling set-backs, the Bell South Tower, Jacksonville's third tallest building, takes on completely different shapes and appearances depending on your perspective. Look for it on the western side of the city's Northbank skyline.

Jax Metro Area home to Nation's oldest city

by noidiotsplease

Located a short 45 minute drive south of Downtown Jacksonville, the historic city of St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied European settlement in the continental United States. It was founded by the Spanish in 1565, 42 years before the English colonized Jamestown and 55 years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock.

Attractions are diverse and plentiful in this European looking village, including forts, historic sites, living history museums, animal parks, sightseeing tours, ghost tours, specialty museums and areas for recreation and amusement. In fact, here it's common to see authentically clothed soldiers and craftsmen walking around town, particularly at the Colonial Spanish Quarter and at the Castillo de San Marcos, where if you're lucky you'll see (and hear) a cannon firing demonstration. The historic district is a walkable area of several square blocks featuring a vast array of attractions, shops, art galleries, restaurants, bed & breakfasts and hotels within a short distance from one another. St. George Street, a pedestrian-only corridor located right in the center of the historic district, is where most of the city's visitors congregate to eat and shop. While St. George may be the only pedestrian-only corridor, numerous other surrounding streets also offer a variety of unique shops, restaurants and galleries from which to choose. In fact, two main entry corridors, King St. and San Marco Ave., are known for having large concentrations of art galleries and antiques shops respectively.

St. Augustine, located about 40 miles south of Downtown, and the pirate town of Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, located about the same distance north of Downtown, serve as charming geographical bookends to the volumes of unique experiences visitors will enjoy when visiting Jacksonville.

A hip coffeehouse just steps from the beach

by noidiotsplease about Shelby's

Shelby's is a favorite locals' hangout at Jacksonville's Beach Town Center. Here, patrons can enjoy frozen mango drinks, pastries, sandwiches, salads, ice cream, cakes, pies, cookies, and, of course, coffee drinks, all in a cozy, tropical setting. A courtyard behind the coffee shop features live music on weekend nights. Additional outdoor cafe-style seating at umbrella tables is also availiable. Some locals even bring their pooches. The inside features changing exhibits of local artwork, stands with local art, entertainment and opinion magazines, and bulletin boards advertising all things hip and happening that are taking place at the beaches. Live jazz is performed here on Sunday mornings. Shelby's, along with the rest of Town Center was profiled in a recent issue of Southern Living. Frozen mango drink and a cheese danish turnover.

MOSH: science, history, planetarium & fun for kids

by noidiotsplease

Along the Southbank Riverwalk in downtown Jacksonville you'll find the Museum of Science in History or "MOSH" as the locals call it. In addition to featuring dinosaurs and other special interest or holiday exhibits, MOSH can be described as three kinds of attraction areas under one roof.

First off, the main collection of exhibits focus on science and history topics of interest or importance to the nature, early settlements and modern development of Jacksonville, such as manatees, the Timucuan Indians and historic riverboats sunk during the Civil War.

The museum's second main component is the Alexander Brest Planetarium. Here, you can learn about the wonders of the night sky, like where to find constellations and planets. The planetarium is also used from time to time for special nighttime events like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd laser light shows

The third area is mainly of interest to children. This is where they can interact with a variety of hands-on science experiments dealing with topics such as electricity, optical illusions, and shadows, among others.
