Just north of Madeira sits the lively metropolitan city of Jacksonville. As the largest city in the contiguous United States in land area (841 square miles) and the 14th largest in population (more than 800,000 residents), Jacksonville offers endless opportunities to live, work, and play in Northeast Florida. Nestled against the majestic St. Johns River, Jacksonville’s bustling riverfront and downtown districts offer a plethora of attractions including Off-Broadway performances, concerts and festivals, shopping and dining, and professional football’s Jacksonville Jaguars. Bordering the Atlantic Ocean, the city’s three beach towns boast white sandy shores and a relaxed lifestyle. Jacksonville is home to U.S. Navy bases, the glittering skyline houses several insurance and financial institutions’ headquarters, and two major interstate highways (I-95 and I-10) are traveled by thousands of working professionals every day.

With nearly perfect weather year-round and a wealth of big city conveniences, it’s easy to see why Jacksonville is such a great place to call home.
