As the largest city in the contiguous U.S. by land area, Jacksonville enjoys diverse communities, modern facilities and services, great entertainment and a comfortable way of life. Areas of the Southside, which includes San Jose, were once the small portions of land that lay within city limits on the southern banks of the river. Once consolidation took place, the definitions of the Southside remained the same, but with a resulting dramatic effect on their size. Southside expanded to encompass more than 20 times its original size, going all the way to the Intracoastal Waterway, and even taking in the historic neighborhood of Mandarin, nearly 10 miles to the south.
San Jose and the surrounding neighboring communities offer several events and points of interest. Music lovers can enjoy the many seasonal festivals and concerts including the Jacksonville Jazz Festival every April, the free city sponsored Spring Music Fest and the free outdoor blues festival of Springing the Blues. Every May, Jacksonville hosts the Film Festival, while the Art Walk is a monthly outdoor art festival. Most notably, July 4th celebrates our nationís independence with the Freedom, Fanfare and Fireworks celebration, one of the nationís largest fireworks displays on the surface of the St. Johns River. Other events include the Great Atlantic Seafood and Music Festival, the World of Nations Celebration and the Blessing of the Fleet Parade of Boats.
For residents looking for culture and entertainment, visit the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Science and History, and the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. For golf enthusiasts, the San Jose Country Club offers showcase golf on 18 holes, surrounded by lush foliage; multiple tees all par 72 for a challenging game for all levels of play. The Country Club also offers fitness facilities, tennis and aquatics for their members.
Whether it's the diverse recreational opportunities, the wide range of housing and economic diversity or the beautiful weather, San Jose and the surrounding communities afford a quality of life that is second to none.
