The Pros of Moving to Jacksonville

No city in the world is without its positives and negatives, and Jacksonville is no different. With a number of pros to consider, moving to Jacksonville is quickly becoming a family favorite. An estimated 853,382 residents reside in Jacksonville, making it the largest city by population in Florida and the 12th most populated city in the Unites States. All My Sons Moving & Storage knows all the beauty that Jacksonville has to offer and wants to share it with new residents. Here are just a few pros of moving to Jacksonville.

The Weather.

It’s no surprise that this is a major pro. Jacksonville has a tropical atmosphere, a warm climate, and mild winters. No snow has been recorded seen since 1989. The beautiful fall scenery is why most “snowbirds” enjoy vacationing in Jacksonville. If hurricanes seem to be of concern, there is no need to worry. Jacksonville has not seen a hurricane make landfall since 1964. Its tucked away location in the northeast corner reduces the likelihood of the city being hit by a hurricane.

The Beaches.

No matter where you move to in Jacksonville, you are most likely still located within close proximity to some of the most beautiful beaches. Jacksonville movers typically tell new residents that most locals can reach the beach in less than an hour and can enjoy many fun activities like surfing, kayaking, or paddle boarding. After a long day at the beach, you can check out one of the many waterfront dining venues for dinner.


Did you know that the city of Jacksonville operates the largest urban park system in the United States? Over 80,000 acres of land cover 262 designated parks. Each park brings a unique quality to it; from the calm peace of parks in Riverside to the rich history of Downtown’s Hemming Plaza, the city’s first park. Enjoying a nice stroll with your furry friend will come easy to you once you move to Jacksonville.

Low Cost of Living.

Jacksonville is habitually on the list for major cities with a low cost living. Compared to many east coast cities, Jacksonville is impressively affordable.  The cost of living is not only lower than the U.S. national average, but it's also lower than the Florida average.

Sports & Outdoors

Are you a fan of hunting or fishing? If so, Jacksonville is your dream area. The St. John's River is very much the lifeblood of the city and is often used by residents for fishing, boating, and water skiing. The city also has scenic championship golf courses and the PGA tours is based in nearby Ponte Vedra.

All in all, Jacksonville has a lot to offer families and singles who are looking for a fresh start in a new, beautiful city. When you are ready to make your move to the home of the Jaguars, All My Sons can help!
