With a reported population of 799,875 people in 2006, Jacksonville remains the largest city in the state of Florida. Located in the First Coast region of northeast Florida, Jacksonville is centered on the banks of the St. Johns River 340 miles north of Miami and 25 miles south of the Georgia border. The city of Jacksonville has a total area of 874.3 square miles, making it the largest city in land area in the United States.
Jacksonville is the principal city in the Greater Jacksonville Metropolitan Area that withstands a staggering population of more than 1,313,228. Such a large amount of residents makes Jacksonville the most populated city proper in Florida and the twelfth most populous in the United States. Drawn to its many attractions and beautiful city skyline by the water, approximately 2.8 million visitors stayed overnight touring Jacksonville in 2008. Jacksonville is not only home to the NFL Jaguars and a number of minor league teams, but also to two universities, the fourth largest community college in the country, and a four year college.
Considering that the majority of Jacksonville’s metropolitan population lives within the city limits, transportation plays a huge role in how residents get around. In addition to those who call the region home, the large number of tourists and college students add to the potential threat of pedestrian accidents, auto accidents, and many other kinds of Jacksonville personal injury accidents throughout the city.
