Jacksonville is a hidden gem in Florida. While it is geographically the largest city in the continental United States (over 840 square miles), this northeastern Florida hub offers the best of a major metro area with the friendly charm of a small southern town. With its location in northeast Florida, Orlando and all its attractions is within a 2 hour drive as is historic Savannah, Georgia. South Florida and Miami is about 5 and a half hours away by car. The vast majority of our residents are off on the weekends, so you can enjoy all Jacksonville has to offer.
