Jacksonville: the undiscovered urban version

Recommended Posts

I thought I share some photos I took of places around the city, while I searched for a place to stay. At a latter date I will post more in depth photo threads on some of these neighborhoods. Well lets get started!

Awesome pics, Lakelander!!! Thanks for the great tour, and I am looking forward to your future posts about Jacksonville. I feel that JAX is not as much represented as it should, but I know you will be taking care of this from now on :)
