That whole area around Southside Blvd/US 1/Philips Hwy is very active as far as development, commercially speaking. There are a lot of new commercial developments that brought a Wal-mart, Target, Best Buy, many large chain restaurants (both dine-in & fast eats!) tons of little specialty shops and too much else to name. Avenues Mall is also nearby. As far as "Best" neighborhoods, I have to direct that question to websites because there are certain types of questions that REALTORS(R) cannot answer for legal reasons.

For crime rates in different parts of JAX, checkout http://www.coj.net/departments/sheriffs-office.aspx and for other stats checkout http://www.homefacts.com

Another great resource is the Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement. http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/Content/home.aspx

My company has a property management division and you can contact them for assistance in that area. You can also preview rental listings at http://www.watsonrent.com

Let me know if I can help in any other way.
