A laid-back suburban neighborhood full of single-story houses
and modern apartment complexes, Duclay
Forest sits about 11 miles southwest of downtown Jacksonville
and just west of the Jacksonville Naval Air Station.
Interstate 295 borders the neighborhood and provides quick access to other parts of the city.
Duclay Forest features major retail chains along with local shops, such as George's Music Inc, a neighborhood favorite for its free guitar lessons. You can do most of your shopping at Crossroads Square Shopping Center near the Blanding Boulevard and Collins Road Intersection. For dining, try Sushi Wok if you like Japanese, or visit Sunrise Cafe for an authentic Haitian breakfast. If you feel like seafood or just want to watch sports at the bar, check out the Juicy Crab.
