About Duval County

Your company shouldn’t have to choose between a low cost of living or a high-quality workplace; a consolidated government or business friendly climate; a vibrant downtown or miles of sandy beaches. In JAX, you get it all.

Duval means business. With assets including Cecil Commerce Center, Jacksonville International Airport, JAXPORT, multiple military bases and a growing downtown, there’s space for your operations. Jacksonville has one of the lowest overall costs of living in Florida and the United States. Spanning more than 840 square miles, it is the largest city by land in the contiguous United States, the most populated city in Florida, and one of the most military-friendly cities in the country.

Affordable, high-quality housing, the largest U.S. urban park system, unique neighborhoods, and an average 220 days of sunshine are just some of the reasons why so many people choose to relocate to Jacksonville each year.
