Top 5 Reasons to Live in Jacksonville Beach, Florida
The Jacksonville Celtic Festival! Held each year, this festival takes place at the Seawalk Pavilion in Jacksonville Beach and is a unique weekend-long event devoted to the culture of the Celtic nations. Head to Ocean Front North, close to the pier, for activities like a tug-o-war tournament, live music and a children's zone. There is plenty to see and do during the festival weekend.
The mix of rented and owned homes! Just under half of the housing stock in Jacksonville Beach is owner-occupied. However, well over 37 percent of the housing is rented, making it attractive for people looking for rent to own houses. Even on ocean facing roads like First Street South, there are plenty of choices for renters.
The sporting facilities! Jacksonville Beach's excellent tennis center is situated on Huguenot Park, just a block or so from the beach. Along with softball teams and flag football, the municipal golf club is superb and is easy to find on the western side of the city, close to the Borland-Groover Clinic.
The fishing pier! Jacksonville Beach's most iconic landmark, the fishing pier, stretches about a quarter of a mile into the ocean. Head to Fourth Avenue North and then turn east towards the coast. No Florida salt water fishing license is needed to use the pier and spectators who just want to walk up and down its length are only charged a dollar.
A plethora of studio apartments! Jacksonville Beach has some excellent studio apartments which cost less to rent than the national average, unlike much of the larger rental homes to be found in Duval County. Many of these smaller properties are located on the main routes, such as Beach Boulevard and Third Street South, but apartments of all sizes and shapes can be found the length and breadth of the city.
