Overview

Jaxport is a unique neighborhood. It is reminiscent of a factory town like Detroit, but it's also very safe. It's made up of working-class families who make their living at the port authority, the airport, or at one of the many industrial facilities in the area. There's nothing fancy about this part of Jacksonville, but it has the tight-knit community feel of a place where you can count on your neighbors and friends.

Where to Live

The residential area of Jaxport runs between East 30th Street and East 8th Street, with the most quiet areas being north of the railway line along Kooker Park. This location gives residents easy access to almost any job location in Jaxport that they may have to commute to every day.

Where to Eat

The food in Jaxport is inexpensive, but it isn't fancy either. Here, you'll find that most eateries cater to the busy lunch crowd, which consists of workers who need to fill up and get back to the grind as soon as possible. For fine dining, you'd want to invest in the drive to Jacksonville.

What You'll See

Almost everywhere you look around Jaxport, you'll see some kind of manufacturing facility, industrial warehouse, or shipping operation. Jaxport's prime proximity to the St. John's River makes it the perfect spot for transportation operations. You'll also see a bevy of hardworking, blue-collar workers who represent what makes America great. In the residential areas, you'll see families everywhere. Many people enjoy gardening year round, so front yards are mostly filled with flowers and shrubberies, while backyard vegetable gardens are ubiquitous.

Friday Night Fun

Friday nights are quiet in this family neighborhood, where most people have young children at home. Frequent backyard BBQs and street block parties allow residents to make their own fun on their own turf. When people aren't watching their kids perform in school plays or musical recitals, they're typically having family gatherings or sitting around together watching a Jags game.

The Perfect Sunday

Hop in a kayak or canoe and enjoy the natural beauty of north-flowing St. John's River. Landlubbers can watch from afar at the picturesque Deer Creek Park off Tallyerand Avenue. If you have little ones, stop off at Russell Bill Cook Jr. Park, where they can wear themselves out playing on the outdoor jungle gym.
