Jacksonville consists of a big city feel and laid back southern charm, so it's a great choice for you to raise your children and have a family. Wanting to raise your children in a family-friendly environment and safe neighborhood is a no-brainer and most communities understand that, so there have been more and more communities offering family-friendly and kid-friendly amenities. A good way to locate your new kid-friendly home in Jacksonville is to look for amenities that are specifically geared towards children such as playgrounds, picnic areas, game rooms, pools, etc. Keep in mind that a lot of communities offer organized resident activities, so check to see what events they have planned and that will also give you some input into which communities will be friendly to your family and lifestyle. If they are advertising for a pool party with a DJ, that may not be the best choice for you. Here's how to get an idea of the communities that are kid-friendly in Jacksonville.
