Actionville, one of Jacksonville's favorite slang terms!

<<< Back to Slang USA Cities Map
(noun) A sarcastic nickname for Jacksonville

Usually used by young people who are frustrated with Jacksonville’s lack of nightlife and other entertainment options

Curt: “You all fired up for another exciting Friday night in Actionville?”

Willy: ”It ain’t so bad.”

Curt: “Oh, yeah? What are you up to tonight?”

Willy: “PS3 and microwave popcorn. Alright, you got me, maybe Actionville’s not quite the city that never sleeps.”

While some locals will use Actionville as a term of endearment, the majority of the times that you hear Actionville used as slang it is in a sarcastic tone, generally referring to the relatively low key bar and club scene in the city.
