There are good days and bad days there. I personally wouldn’t take the chance. This issue is being covered nationally. Jensen was always my favorite to go to but all in all, the waterways in general have issues there right now. It’s not exactly a secret

Back to the original post though... this area is an amazing place to live. Jax is a great city to work in attracting more and more employers. Easy to get out of the state of an evacuation is necessary. And the people are incredibly nice and educated here.

In my short time there... maybe 3 hours.. I encountered.

1 person spitting at me for no reason.

1 person with a bit of road rage.

and 1 person asking me for money for gas and I'm sure it wasn't actually for gas.

and this all happened outside of the main downtown city.... where I would have assumed it should be more pleasant... St Johns area.. Atlantic BLVD... Jacksonville Beach.


Jacksonville Crime Index: 9
(100 is safest)
Safer than 9% of U.S. Cities

LoL good luck.


Even NY has a better crime rating

It’s never as bad as it seems (and as good as it seems). I have had family from down south come visit and complement the area for how nice and polite people are, and how a lot of strangers use terms of endearment when they make small talk. Encountered minimal rudeness, but maybe they just got lucky

Your original post said you were "looking at condos"....one would assume, then, that you were considering moving to our area. Or are you simply coming onto this message board to tell all the locals how awful their city is?

Huge difference moving from South FL up this way. People are way nicer here. But yeah, sounds like a mission to just go on a forum to say mean things to people about where they live. Good luck down in PSL Hell

PSL has a horrible reputation locally. Their schools are awful... hence the desire for many of those residents moving to Martin county. Saw the governor’s new state of emergency for the algae issues in counties including St. Lucie.. Hope the election year environmentalist comes through for you.
