I recommend visiting Atlantic Beach, just fifteen minutes east of the heart of Jacksonville. Atlantic Beach, a small seashore community with bleached white sand and great surf, ranging from placid lake to Great Rapids torrent. Take your pick.
After trip to Jacksonville: "Oh my Gosh! It was so beautiful! When can I get back?!"
Tourist 2: Must be Jacksonville!
Tourist 3: Jacksonville is full of people with the bling!
Jacksonville is the only place to have two Top 10 Best High Schools in the United States, and then 15 minutes away have a school so bad its run by the government.
Jacksonville has about 20-30 ghettos, if you get technical. And about 50,000 kids who like to think that they're in a "crew".
Jacksonville has the 2nd best Hardcore scene in the U.S. 1st is Boston, 3rd is Ocala, and 4th is Miami. But fuck Miami.
We have 7 bridges, and just as many beaches. But most of them are over-crowded with slutty girls and 20 year old men who think they can lift a car.
Jacksonville has the largest death rate in all of the U.S behind Detroit, and possibly L.A.
If you talk shit about someone in Jacksonville, you will be jumped. Its almost mandatory.
Fuck people who say Jacksonville is full of Rednecks. They don't know shit, or either had a bad experience. Jacksonville is mostly uptight old people who hate kids like my friends and I. Despite the thought that Jacksonville is a redneck run, racist to death, cousin fucking, NASCAR loving city, come take a visit. Youll see it is the opposite.
It is in fact run by Satan himself. Who also goes by The First Baptist church. Seriously, fuck them. Evergreen Terrace has a song on their new album "Wolfbiker", that is dedicated to TFBCOJ. "We are the wicked, who walk these streets, down by the lighthouse, on the Riverside", is a lyric in the song after the Church slandered every Hardcore kid who has gone to a show at Thee Imperial(The best venue in the World, R.I.P). They called them all demons, and spawns of Satan. That we contribute nothing to society. But thats not true. Were not evil.
Pretty much, Jacksonville is a very nice place, if you know where your going, and who your talking to. Come visit us. Ill party with you.
P.S-Duval is the best county. Fuck what cha heard.
Jacksonville is a unique city. With one of the top three murder rates in the country, 7 beaches within 20 miles, a river that runs straight through it (one of two rivers in the world that runs north), and the largest land mass of any city in the United States, its anything but ordinary.
With one of the largest ghettos in the country, (Northside/Westside) its hard not to have a large murder rate. And we do.
Jacksonville is a diverse city, with some of everything, Latinos, Whites, Blacks, and is definatley not the Nascar loving city many people think it to be.
Most tourists come to jacksonville for the beaches, or for the superbowl that was held in 2005.
Many Famous musical artists came from jacksonville, such as lynyrd skynyrd, young cash, red jumpsuit apparatus, shinedown, yellowcard, 38. special, florida boys, along with many more.
Jacksonville is also home to the Jaguars, arguably one of the most Gangsta NFL teams, with players like Reggie Nelson and Rashean Mathis.
All in all, Jacksonville is a great city, and im proud to represent da 904.
All these other haters cant handle the beast of the south that is DUVAL.
"Yeah, nothin but straight G's come outta J-ville"
"There are also a few bands of Vigilantes operating in the 904, such as J.I."
Jacksonville planning Authority and just about any over confident, arrogant for no real reason, completely Stupid fucking redneck groups.
