Jacksonville is known as the largest city in geographic size in the United States. This is because the entire area of Duval County has been incorporated into the "City of Jacksonville". The various communities surrounding the downtown area each have their own "flavor" and are typically referred to as the Downtown, Northside, Westside, Riverside/Avondale, San Marco, San Jose, Mandarin, Southside, Arlington, and The Beaches. The local MLS is divided into these various areas, with sub-areas under each.
It can sometimes be confusing, because often the other surrounding counties, including Clay, St. Johns, and Nassau, are referred to as "Jacksonville", but each of these counties has its own government, courthouse, school board, property appraiser, tax collector, etc. You can visit the web sites for each individual county government by clicking on the links below.
