History

Originally inhabited by the Sammamish tribe, this area was claimed by Europeans in 1870. In 1876, logging began, made possible by the Sammamish River, and brought construction of buildings. David Bothell bought 80 acres in 1885 and, in 1888, the area was named Bothell and incorporated in 1909. Shortly afterward, the river was diverted and caused logging to slow and eventually cease, while farming took over. After World War II, road construction began and, by 2006, the population rose to 30,000. When the tech boom arrived in the region, the University of Washington branched out to Bothell.

Transportation

Many people use personal vehicles to get around the area, but the JTA bus service is cheap and reliable. If you ride regularly, a monthly pass costs $50. Taxi services operate in the area, as does Uber. Parking is free many places, though downtown uses metered parking, which costs 25 cents for a half hour. Garage parking runs more. The Royal Lakes neighborhood, conveniently located near interstates 95 and 295, makes it easy to travel. Wide streets and sidewalks in the neighborhood make it easy for pedestrians to stroll to neighborhood destinations.

Cost

Living in Royal Lakes costs 3 percent more than the average cost of living in Jacksonville. A one-way fare on JTA Bus service to the downtown transit station costs $1.50 — with star cards, the disabled ride for 75 cents and those 60 and older ride free. A one-bedroom residence averages about $770 per month. The cost of a domestic beer averages about $3.50, and gasoline prices in the area run about the same as the national average.

Shopping

Visit one of the five big department stores in The Avenues Mall on Southside Boulevard for the latest trends in apparel. Upscale stores such as Charlotte Russe and Banana Republic reside among the 150 shops as well.

Apricot Lane Boutique, located at The Avenues, carries trendy clothing in a rustic atmosphere. Try it out for the latest in dresses and summer wear. Wolfgang, about 11 miles up Route 9 on Park Street, has an enormous selection of hip clothing, including fabulous prints and sunglasses that glow in the dark. On Atlantic Boulevard, you can browse for the latest in rompers or McGuire jeans at the upscale AshleGryre.

Publix and Winn-Dixie stand as the most popular options for standard groceries. There are also specialty markets that specialize in Mexican, Caribbean and Japanese ingredients around the area. The Jacksonville Farmers Market on West Beaver Street opens daily, including holidays, to offer residents local produce and unique items used in ethnic or specialty cooking.

Parks

Deerwood Rotary Childrens Park supplies a free play area for younger children. This gated park has astroturf on the ground, playground equipment, a small basketball hoop and sandy area for play, and is accessible for disabled children. Camp Tomahawk Park on San Ardo Road has mature trees, picnic tables, shelters, grills, playground equipment and walking trails.

To go camping or just take a day of in nature, visit Huguenot Memorial Park on Heckscher Drive. The park borders the Atlantic Ocean, the Fort George inlet and the St. Johns River. Day visitors can bring along a picnic and enjoy the beach, while campers enjoy the camping sites with grills and picnic tables. Dogs are welcome here, as long as they're leashed. Metropolitan Park in the downtown area holds annual concerts with top performers and events. Naturally, with such proximity to the beach, many adults choose to head to the coast to enjoy the surf and sand.
