I love living in Jacksonville, Alabama. I had to relocate here 4 years ago when I accepted a new position and I have fallen in love with this college town. This community has a piece of my heart now and I hope to be able to forever call this place home.
Everyone here is friendly. The community is very close-knit and there are multiple events throughout the year when most people come together and support each other. During the year, there are community parades and The Marching Southerns provide the community with music every fall on almost every Saturday. The downtown area here offers several charming small shops that you can stroll through on a lazy afternoon.
The best areas in Jacksonville, Alabama are the areas of Jacksonville State University. The campus is absolutely beautiful. It offers many educational opportunities for the adults in this area that are seeking continuing education opportunities and the local high school students also have a chance to attend a 4-year university right here in their hometown.
