There are a lot of small suburbs located outside of Jacksonville.
Jacksonville is a huge city with more than 1 million residents.
The city reaches more than 50 miles in all directions. Many of the small suburbs are places that are great to live. It’s not exactly great to live in the city. I lived in the city of Jacksonville for a little while. It was noisy at night and I constantly heard police sirens and car horns. It was very expensive and I didn’t have the best view. I got a much better deal for my money living in a small suburb right outside of the city. I still have to go into town whenever I need goods and services. When my car needs an oil change, I go to town. When I want to go shopping for a new purse or a new outfit, I go into Jacksonville as well. I also call someone from the city if there are problems at my house that I can’t figure out. There was an issue with the heat pump during the winter months and I could not figure out how to fix the problem. I used the troubleshooting manual to diagnose the issues, but I could not get the heat pump to turn on. I called a Jacksonville heating company that specializes in heat pump repairs. The Jacksonville heating company was locally owned and operated. It wasn’t one of the biggest heating companies in Jacksonville, but it was definitely one of the places that had the best reviews online. The service tech was kind, courteous, intelligent, and quick with his hands.
