From Downtown Jacksonville, follow the St. Johns River west and get ready to escape to the good life. While Riverside/Avondale is the largest National Historic District in the U.S., it is in the midst of a re-birth like many parts of Jacksonville.
Oak trees abound and quiet streets call you to one of the city's most pristine historic neighborhoods. Add the beauty of the St. Johns River and you may just think you have landed in paradise. From quaint little bungalows to turn-of-the-century mansions to new riverfront condos to great apartment living, Riverside/Avondale offers something for every price and lifestyle.
The Five Points area of Riverside/Avondale is one of Jacksonville's most pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods. Many loft style condos and apartments are within walking distance of the trendy shops and eateries in the Five Points area, which also includes two of the city's best parks, Memorial Park and Riverside Park. Either park is great for a Sunday afternoon pickup game of football, flying a kite or an old-fashioned picnic on the grass.
Visit the Riverside Arts Market, tucked under the bridge on Riverside Avenue, and enjoy a local band, a variety of artists, and taste of the cuisine.
The Shoppes of Avondale boast fine foods, reknowned art, luxury jewelry, unique shopping, and right in the center of it all is Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty.
Take a stroll and enjoy the flora of the Riverside/Avondale neighborhoods. Every block is an adventure and a walk through history. You may decide you never want to leave.
