Atlanta Suburbs to Jacksonville Suburbs?I currently live in the north Atlanta suburbs in Gwinnett county and I am looking to move to the Jacksonville area. I own a 3 BR /2.5 BA townhome. My neighborhood has a great HOA , sidewalks, decent public schools, and almost zero crime. The property is very affordable at $1000/mo. My question is...are there any comparable neighborhoods in the Jax suburbs? I have read a lot about crime in north Jax. Are there any low-crime, affordable neighborhoods for middle-income families in other areas of your city? Any specific info (counties, zip codes, etc.) is greatly appreciated!Answer question

How does Jacksonville measure up in regards to Racial Diversity?My wife and I are strongly considering moving from Portland Oregon to Jacksonville. We are in a Interacial marriage and need advice on reasonable neighborhoods to look for a Home.
We would like to find an area that has alot of Working Class people, that is somewhat Diverse but not in the highest crime areas.
Can anyone give me any recomendations and areas to definitely avoid?
Thank you!Answer question

Jacksonville neighborhoodsWe are giving serious thought to relocating to Jacksonville from CT. Our friends live in the Hodges/ Beach area (inter-coastal west?).
Our priorities are, nice housing that is affordable (highland glen, Windsor park are two communities that we have scouted) and a neighborhood-type of feel. Low crime, walkable to amenities (restaurants, coffee shop, some shopping, etc) is very important. I saw parts of Avondale and like the neighborhood feel, but thought maybe between the river and the inter-coastal might be a better fit for us. Any ideas ?Answer question
Jacksonville, FL named one of top comeback cities for 2011According to a recent study, Jacksonville, FL was named one of the top comeback cities for 2011. The study suggests that Jacksonville was hit hard during the past couple years, but will come back strong as jobs are being added in various sectors including: banking, restaurants, warehousing and hotels.
Can anyone who lives in Jacksonville verify this growth? Does anyone know if the unemployment rate has dropped over the past year or so? Looking for some verifiable evidence that Jacksonville is in fact bouncing back, which I hope it is!Answer question
