Living in Jacksonville, FL

Living in location

Jacksonville is an expansive, sprawling city located in northeastern Florida. Specifically, downtown Jacksonville is located along the St. Johns River just a few miles east of the Atlantic Ocean. The city is known for its large military presence, and many local renters work for the U.S. Navy facilities in the area. Jacksonville also has a thriving financial sector, and many banks have regional hubs here. Of course, many local renters are attracted to Jacksonville's year-round warm weather, although it can get very muggy during the summer months. There are also plenty of white sand beaches and wildlife preserves nearby, making it easy for apartment-dwellers to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. Meanwhile, in the downtown area, renters will find a variety of cultural attractions to explore, such as the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens; the Museum of Science and History; and the Museum of Contemporary Art. Likewise, the Jacksonville Zoo and the Jacksonville Arboretum are popular attractions slightly further away. In terms of food, Jacksonville renters will find a variety of Southern classics and seafood dishes here.

As the largest city by area in the contiguous United States, Jacksonville uniquely combines urban charm with expansive natural beauty. Whether it's a stroll along the Riverwalk, a ferry ride to the charming community of Mayport, or a deep-sea fishing adventure departing from its shores, Jacksonville offers a slice of Florida life that is as dynamic as it is relaxing.

Renting in Jacksonville, FL

Jacksonville has a low cost of living when compared to other similarly sized cities in the United States, and you'll find these low costs reflected in area rental prices. Accordingly, there are plenty of spacious and affordable rental apartments and single-family homes for rent here. And, while there are some high-rise and mid-rise apartment complexes in downtown Jacksonville, most neighborhoods have a suburban feel with single-family homes. Many rentals in the area also have yards, and some even have pools and other outdoor features. However, because Jacksonville is quite sprawling, most rental properties are not in walkable neighborhoods. Apartments also tend to be large and offer plenty of privacy. Like many other large Florida cities, many Jacksonville rentals feature Mediterranean Revival characteristics and bright pastel colors. Additionally, there are many historic craftsman bungalows throughout the city.

Things for renting

Of course, local renters also have plenty of options for groceries, including chains like Harveys, Walmart and Save A Lot, as well as local markets. There are also farmers' markets and even seafood markets held throughout the city.

Transportation in Jacksonville, FL

Jacksonville is a very car-centric city, and most renters in the area opt to drive to get around. To that end, interstates 95 and 295 run through the city, connecting many significant neighborhoods. As a result, most rental apartments and businesses in the area have ample parking to accommodate drivers.
