In the late 1960’s Jacksonville was the 12th largest city in the U.S. In 2018 its population was estimated at 903,889 people.
Did you know that Jacksonville is the largest city in the continental United States with over 840 square miles? The city of Jacksonville, known as the River City, grew at a faster rate than Miami in 2018 and had the seventh-largest rate of growth in the country. The growth rate has been just under ten percent since 2010, about half made up of newcomers from international locations. Jacksonville is packed with more than 22 miles of beaches, a scenic stretch of the beautiful St. Johns River, the largest urban park system in the nation, historic neighborhoods, and a thriving street art scene.
