There are a number of reasons why our region is such an attractive place to live.

Whether you have the desire to shop, an ear for music or an attitude for action, Jacksonville is an oasis for residents.

Outdoor Recreation

Northeast Florida is known for its outdoor recreation opportunities, featuring 90 miles of beaches along the Atlantic Ocean and the majestic St. Johns River for boating, fishing and kayaking. National Geographic Adventure magazine ranked Jacksonville as one of the "Top Six Beach Towns" in the United States. Jacksonville also boasts more than 131 square miles of city, state and national parks making it the largest urban park system in the nation. In 2010, Parenting magazine ranked Jacksonville number one on the list of "Ten Best Cities for Recreation."

Sports

Sports enthusiasts can cheer for the NFL Jacksonville Jaguars, the AFL Jacksonville Sharks, the Jacksonville Suns AA baseball team, and the ABA Jacksonville Giants. Whether you are cheering on a field or in an action packed arena, the atmosphere and experience cannot be beat. The area also boasts more than 80 golf courses, including the famed Players Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass and the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Arts & Culture

AmericanStyle magazine ranked Jacksonville as one of its "Top 25 Arts Destinations." Arts and entertainment lovers will appreciate the Museum of Contemporary Art, The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens and Museum of Science and History, as well as the spectacular Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens. These interactive and educational sites are fun for the entire family. The area is also home to several performing arts venues and the world-renowned Jacksonville Symphony.

Attractive Lifestyle

Jacksonville offers shopping excursions for any taste. Those looking for the perfect bargain can look no further than one of the many outlet centers in Northeast Florida. Vintage items and antiques in the eclectic Five Points and upscale chic and trendy boutiques in San Marco and Avondale complement the latest in must-have retail at The Avenues Mall, River City Marketplace, Orange Park Mall, Regency Square Mall and the newest hotspot, the St. Johns Town Center. It is no wonder why Forbes magazine ranked Jacksonville as the ninth "Best U.S. Shopping City."

Education (K-12)

Northeast Florida is home to more than 380 public, private and parochial schools, many of them nationally ranked for their academic achievement. Each year more than 225,000 students attend award-winning schools ranging in size from the 20th largest school system in the nation with 124,000 students to small-town education systems with as few as 4,900 students.

Health Care

From cancer treatment options to innovative organ transplants, Northeast Florida offers a wide range of advanced medical services. The area is home to a number of hospitals that are ranked in the nation?s top 100 and is one of only three locations in the nation for the renowned Mayo Clinic.

Weather

Our moderate year-round climate and access to the Atlantic Ocean and the St. Johns River continually afford residents the opportunity to experience the outdoors for exercise and recreation.

Since our geography places us in a protected location, the Northeast Florida region is not prone to hurricane activity. As the westernmost location on the East Coast, Jacksonville is actually the least likely place on the Atlantic or Gulf Coasts to experience a hurricane.
