Home to more than 69,000 residents, Jacksonville is also the location of a major U.S. Marine Corps' base and the gateway to North Carolina's Southern Outer Banks.
One unique fact, driven by the city's larger than average military population, is that Jacksonville is considered the "youngest" city in the nation, with an average age of just 22.8 years old. However, that shouldn't deter people of all ages from visiting or considering moving to this fine city.
Located on Morgan Bay, Jacksonville was a key stop for sea trade during the 1700s, and a bustling city grew out of the trade industry. Since then numerous industries have sprung to life throughout the city, though the U.S. government continues to be the area's top employer.

Beyond Jacksonville's own attractions, the city is just a short drive from Wilmington, which boasts even more potential for fun for North Carolinians and visitors. Wilmington is home to numerous museums, theaters and cultural centers, as well as a bustling nightlife.
