Jacksonville Listed in the Top 10 Best Places to Live on the Coast in 2020

4 04 2020

Coastal Insider named Jacksonville in the Top 10 Best Places to Live on the Coast in 2020.

has everything: 22 miles of beaches, more than 400 city parks, seven state parks, two national parks, three beach communities (fun-loving Jacksonville Beach, low-key Neptune Beach, and the luxurious village setting of Atlantic Beach), and a steady, gentle Atlantic swell that means you can surf every morning year-round, whether you’re 5 or 65. What else? With Florida’s youngest population age—36—–and one of its hippest, plus a growing economy, affordable real estate, historic neighborhoods, vibrant street arts scene, creative coastal cuisine, vibrant nightlife, and redeveloped urban districts like Riverside and Springfield luring tech startups, makers, and brewers (20 craft breweries at latest count). And while Jacksonville sprawls like a beach blanket over nearly 875 square miles, it is built out of more than 500 discrete neighborhoods that feel like small towns—each with its own commercial district and sense of identity—to its 940,577 residents.
