Austin and I love the neighborhood; it feels safe and we're surrounded by wonderful, caring neighbors. We have felt comfortable since day one here.

Overall, the crime rate is pretty low. Especially compared to many parts of the country right now.
Jacksonville has some real dumpy areas...but the newer areas are definitely bringing in newer and better businesses.
