People will always flock to Miami. Jacksonville just needs more name recognition.

What attracts people to Jacksonville?

..............

People who want a smaller, mid-tier city with conservative values will always flock there as opposed to Florida's other large cities. It's off the radar for just about everyone else. I don't see that trend leading to any type of great potential.

This is a comparison of apples and notebook paper. It's not even a comparison of two fruits. Anyone who would like one would probably not like the other.

Said like someone completely unfamiliar who's spouting stereotypes. Jacksonville is the 40th largest metro area in the country (small and mid-tier?) and has actually gained in population of late unlike other Florida cities. In terms of your allegation of "conservative values", Jacksonville voted 50% Democrat-50% Republican in the 2008 Presidential elections, which is not exactly screaming conservative. The city has the largest deepwater port in the South and second largest on the East Coast which will continue to attract commerce. The cost of living and doing business in Jacksonville is much lower than the overbuilt/congested areas in the southern part of the state. Coupled with excellent schools and a sufficient transportation infrastructure, it's prime for continued corporate relocations.
