The neighborhood of Rolling Hills is situated within the city of Jacksonville, Florida.
The character of Rolling Hills is exemplified by its slower-paced environment. Most areas in this part of the city are reasonably quiet, as the streets tend to be calm - although that is not the case near Interstate 10 or State Highway 9A.

Home owners occupy about 60% of the properties in the neighborhood while the remainder are rented. In this area, most of the dwellings are single detached homes, whereas the rest are mainly large apartment buildings. Most of the houses available in the housing market in this part of the city were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, when most of the housing growth took place. This area also has a selection of unit sizes; it is quite easy to find houses ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
