Not trying to be a smart butt however, you would be better severed using your computer to answer these questions yourself rather than relying on some posters to this forum.

As for a place to live; Avoid living in the are bordered by I-10 to the south, I-295 to the west and north and I-95 and the St. Johns river to the east. You will also want to stay at least 5 miles from any HUD housing project.

As for schools in my opinion there are only two options; Private Schools (many to choose from) or several of the academic magnet schools ( avoid the athletic magnets) do not your kids in schools like Raines, Ribault, Ed White, etc…..

Yes we do see the effects of Hurricanes here and an occasional tornado.

Worst thing here; Stupid Drivers

I personally am considering Fleming Island or the Palm Coast or maybe J.T Butler Blvd.... I'm tired of living near commies.

As for drivers.... I drive fast they can try and stop me

It really depends on what you are looking for. Jacksonville has very different communities depending on where you are. The Westside and Northside are know for being redneck. Riverside is more yuppie as well as San Marco. Mandarin is for the wealthy, etc. Stay away from the northwest quadrant, Arlington, Eastside, etc. as they are known thugville. So basically what are you looking for first?

Logic is right about the schools somewhat, but there are several non magnet A public schools so your not forced into magnet or private schools. Once again, doing some research into the schools isn't too hard with the internet. Jacksonville really doesn't have horrendous flooding problems, just some areas and not really that bad.

Don't care about schools, conservative, white, don't want to live near the ghetto (so a nicer neighborhood but no Bolo's). Oh and commute daily to work, so need to be able to leave the place alone for a while on a common basis. Did I mention no liberals?

You'll fit in well. Liberals get little respect in this area.
One of the last conservative places left in FLA. The state has been trashed by north eastern liberals,and minorities.
