Interesting question....."SAFE" is a relative term.....Northeast Florida (including Jacksonville) has been said by many much more safe than say....South Florida. Of course, there are in ALL cities, towns, etc, some areas where you might feel "safer" than others. The local sheriff's office can provide information about crimes....locations/and types. NO PLACE on earth is "crime free".

All that being said....Jacksonville is an amazing city of diverse neighborhoods....we have areas with gentle "hills". areas near and on the ocean-front, locations on and/or near the beautiful St.Johns River....areas where you can have horses and possibly other farm animals.....places where you can live on an acre of land or 10 acres of land or more....lots of lakes on which to live...rural...suburbs...and the urban areas....areas where you would feel free to live car-less...some "walking" neighborhoods.....in other words...WE ARE A MIXED BAG...and GLAD to be!

I have always felt "SAFE" in Jacksonville....and have lived here a LONGGGGGGGGGG time....there are a few areas that I would avoid late in the evening.....or at night...it is just common sense that some bars and/or night clubs could possibly lend one to conclude things "happen".

There are GREAT neighborhoods all over Jacksonville and the surrounding towns...NO PLACE is IMMUNE to crime.....some human beings just do not act like human beings! If you are considering a move to the Northeast Florida area....talk to an experienced real estate agent who will not lead you to JUST his or her favorite area....it MIGHT NOT be YOUR favorite area. Explore your options!
Weigh the pluses and the minuses......it seems complicated...BUT...it is not.

Surprisingly....You will "feel" more comfortable in some areas ....and not in others....it is ALL ABOUT YOU......YOU are the one who will determine AND answer the question you placed on Trulia....A city tour will take an hour or two....will NOT cost a penny....AND will expose you to the MANY OPTIONS we provide....

YOU WILL LOVE JACKSONVILLE....will feel safe....and enjoy a wonderful, diverse area...with SEASONS....(mild....but....we are NOT HOT all the time...it is a "good thing")

Contact us...if you choose...it would be a pleasure to provide you with knowledge of the REAL Jacksonville.....
