Imagine wide beaches of fine white powder sand high-lighting a distinctive natural scenery where colorful, tropical flowering plants and palm trees intermingle with magnolias and shady water oaks dressed in Spanish moss. Imagine a major, curvaceous river slices through these lush coastal hardwood hammocks, flowing into numerous finger tributaries and watering acres of expansive wetlands teeming with nature. Imagine if this was your home.  Imagine living in the aquatic city of Jacksonville, a friendly, youthful and engaging metropolis uniquely blessed with bountiful natural beauty and a diverse population often unified by unabashed Christian values and community spirit. With a population now approaching 800,000 residents, Jacksonville ranks as the nation's 13th largest city and is the heart and soul of Florida's First Coast, a five-county metropolitan area home to roughly 1.3 million people. A vibrant, cosmopolitan hotbed of culture, entertainment, recreation, sports, commerce and relaxation, Jacksonville is an excellent choice for a vacation destination and an even better place to call home.
