Jacksonville Real Estate
Jacksonville blends just the right amount of opportunity and activities all within a wonderfully hospitable coastal town. Bursting with the rich heritage of a quaint maritime city, Jacksonville's population of 62,000 enjoys miles of breathtaking beaches, warm and sunny climate and endless opportunities for ocean and urban adventures in a safe environment.
The commercial center for Onslow County, Jacksonville is the home of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and the Marine Corps Air Station New River which provide a stable economic base for the city. The combinations of the largest Marine force in the world with local residents who are examples of southern hospitality make Jacksonville a wonderful place to live and work.
Visitors and residents alike enjoy beholding the site of the world's elite military helicopters like the Osprey, CH46 and CH53 circling the blue sky around the bases. Military history is honored by the Beirut Memorial, a tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country in the Lebanon conflict from 1982-1984.
First known as Wantland's Ferry, Jacksonville was later named after President Andrew Jackson and today is North Carolina's seventh largest commercial center. In honor of historic tradition, Jacksonville has a walking tour of its eighteen historic homes listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, the Coastal Carolina Community College provides an excellent educational source for residents. But it isn't all business in Jacksonville; residents have access to unparalleled recreational opportunities in its various festivals and unique shopping opportunities.
With so much to do and see it is no wonder that Jacksonville has been rated as one of America's "Healthy Cities" by Organic Style magazine and one of America's "Top Small Cities to Live In" by CNN. A lower than average crime rate for North Carolina and affordable housing make Jacksonville too attractive to ignore if you are looking for a new place to call home.
