Moving to Jacksonville

Jacksonville is the largest city in Florida and is perfectly set up for family living; you are never more than an hour’s drive away from one of the states’ long sandy beaches. Expatriates moving to Jacksonville will find that there is also an air of culture with the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens and the city’s Riverside District, home to the Riverside Art Market during the spring. The cost of living in North West Florida is lower than the rest of the state, however, it is expected to catch up as more people relocate to the area. Any expatriate considering a move to Jacksonville will have many questions that need answering regarding accommodation, crime rates, education and health care. Get answers to these queries from expatriates already based in the city. InterNations’ website offers you the opportunity to contact local expats and ask them any specific questions you may have through forums, discussion groups and a direct messaging service.
