Eclectic, bohemian, historic and hip, those are a few words often used to describe this Jacksonville District. Voted as one of the country’s Top 10 Great Neighborhoods, and listed in the National Registry of Historic Places, the Riverside/Avondale district has a unique mix of history, culture, charm and modern design. Located just a few blocks from the St. Johns River, the district’s “Five Points” area is a bohemian neighborhood with funky coffee shops, outdoor cafés, great local dining, one-of-a-kind shopping, nightclubs, antique stores and more. The Shoppes of Avondale, another highlight of this district, has an eclectic mix of locally owned restaurants, clothing boutiques and Spanish-moss-covered, oak-lined streets.
Beautiful historic homes and grand city parks are the norm in Riverside/Avondale. Enjoy a self-guided tour or join a guided bike tour of the most architecturally significant structures in the area.
