I moved to Jacksonville last August when I began teaching at FSCJ. Many people I’ve met have been less happy than in other Florida towns – I think because there are more who “find” themselves here rather than choosing the city themselves. And like any larger city, there are huge disparities that exist depending on where you live. This is somewhat explained by size – the largest city by area in the US!
But for me it’s been perfect. There are a lot of things to do here, but you need to look to find them. And of course, there’s great weather!
I start most days with a dip in the pool
I love India House and their great buffet!
an great all-day festival of musicians from the first coast!
Beautiful sky and palm trees!
The “jaguar” building downtown

Sun Ray Cinema in 5 Points shows some great art house, indy and cult films and has an amazing lobby!
