I would like to renovation all buildings.The more I do the I will have everything good Morning Beautiful how are

I like that I have my family close by I like the fact that my son moved his family out of this neighborhood into a nicer one

I like that there is a supermarket and a dollar store within walking distance, we also have two fast food restaurants close by. It is in the downtown area hospitals are nearby and mostly senior citizens live here.

My house. Especially now, while we are in quarantine. In fact, it is currently the ONLY place I get to be. My second favorite thing, at the moment, is the back yard, where I get to go outside and putter in the garden and enjoy the beautiful spring weather that we've been having this week.

The most populous city in Florida, Jacksonville is also the largest city by area in the contiguous United States. More commonly referred to as Jax, the city is ideal for those who love the outdoors. Combining opportunities to relax with time for adventure, you'll have plenty of beachfront to keep yourself busy.

The Best Neighborhoods in Jacksonville

Getting the best of the outdoors, living in Jacksonville provides you beach access and a lively riverfront. The St. Johns River splits the city in two, and provides a focal point for much of the local activity. Living here is definitely for those who love the sun, as the city averages over 220 days of sunshine per year.
