I know many on here dislike Jacksonville, but there is a good job opportunity for me there. Are there any nicer apartments in the area? 1 BR <$700? I was down there recently and there only seems to be one road with a bunch of different complexes. Is there an area worth looking into? Thanks.

Nothing? Please help me if you can. I looked at a complex called Puller Place, but they start at $790, which is a little too steep. Any others?

Default Apartments in J'ville

When we first moved here a long time ago, we lived at The Reserve of Jacksonville Commons - it is nice and VERY convenient to Western Blvd (which is where pretty much everything is located). Recently 2 additional apartment complexes were built by The Reserve - they both look nice - The Legacy and Charleston Place (I think) - unfortunately, all three of those start in the $700s. Depending on which side of town you're working on (towards Swansboro or towards Wilmington) - there are a few other towns you can look in - Swansboro, Hubert, Emerald Isle (you can find some decently priced rentals on the ocean), New Bern (little longer drive, but cute historic town), Hampstead (1/2 way between Jax and Wilmington), Surf City, Atlantic Beach, and Topsail Island.

J'ville grows on you - when we first moved here, I cried (of course - the was NOTHING), but the community is growing quickly and we're really very close to A LOT - just take advantage of all that the area has to offer (Myrtle Beach is about 2 hrs away, Raleigh-Durham is 2 hours as well)... there's the ocean and tons of historical places around as well.

Good Luck!
