The city of Jacksonville has become a very popular location for those wishing to retire and enjoy the heat and the bristling blue ocean. With its location in the Northern part of Florida, the area is warm, yet not as consuming as the southern areas like Miami. There is great diversity here in Jacksonville, with people from all walks of life and beliefs calling the area home. According to the Census Bureau, the racial mixture of the city is 55% Caucasian, 31% African American and the remainder is a mix between Native American, Asian, and Hispanic.1 The city also has the 10th largest Arabic concentration and overall, has a highly diverse ethnic population. The city is home to Jacksonville University and the University of North Florida, making the city a great college town and a thriving part of the city's economy. The city is also rich in cultural heritage, providing many historic sites to visit. Festivals and music are part of the culture, including the Jacksonville Jazz Fest, the Jacksonville Film Festival, and of course, the fireworks celebration every 4th of July.
