I would like to see less traffic and people on their phones. The higher the minimum wage would make it easier to enjoy the nightlife a little more. Less construction and people on the streets with their children when they could be working a job. We have the best people though! the beaches and local restaurants make it worth your wild to come and a tour of DUVALL! Duval is a county that makes up the majority of Jacksonville and you can hear it being chanted in any nighttime event! This is no other county like our own Duval County!

I have recently just relocated to Jacksonville, I have yet to really enjoy the sites, and locations of many things, I can say I love it here, I am so proud that I made a good choice, to settle here, people are nice so far (lol) the shopping is great, the restaurants are nice, looking forward to exploring more.
Very quiet neighborhood friendly! folks! great shopping experiences !...gotta stay away from not so safe neighborhoods though never go out at night especially in a taxi its overall a good part of town Living in the country and its very peaceful and quiet great friends great neighbors very good place to live
