I am looking to move to Jax as soon as i can put some things in order here. I am presently living in Southern California now (Riverside, County). i have been living in S.Cali for about 17years.

Looking to stay in an area that about halfway between the international airport and the Blunt island (seaport). I am hoping to start an import/export company as soon as i can get the finances together

Meanwhile, i will have to get a job for the time being. Any decent and safe area (apartment complex preferred) that you can recommend? A studio will be nice.

Jax will be my best bet for logistic reasons hence my moving there and the weather is not too different from Calif. (so i hear )

Also, do cars in Jax areas have rust issues?. Will occasionally be dealing with cars (i love Calif. weather on cars but wont make much profit when i ship it to my potential clients from here ).

Any other "newbie" hints will be appreciated.

1) The weather is very different. 98 F with 100% humidty and heavy thunderstorms yesterday. This is not uncommon. It's humid most fo the year, which sucks royally.

2) If you don't live on the beach then I don't think rust would be anymore of an issie as anywhere else.

3) Pertaining to cars, FL has a law where if your windshield is cracked then they'll replace it for free. They being your insurnace company in FL. I don't know how many times you can do this.

4) The area that your moving to is hicksville, no offense. Just saying. Not a lot of development either, so i doubt you'll find a studio apartment in that area.

5) Jacksonville is a driving town, public transportation here sucks.

Plenty of options in that area as well as Amelia Island. Are you looking to rent or purchase? The River City marketplace by the Airport has new apartments.
