Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, the neighborhoods of Riverside and Avondale together create a famous historic district that offers a distinctive mix of history, culture, character and community. Voted as one of the country’s “Top 10 Great Neighborhoods”, Riverside and Avondale are two of Jacksonville’s oldest suburbs and are home to a hip, young population with a warm and welcoming urban atmosphere.

Managed by the Riverside Avondale Preservation Society, the district boasts a wealth of things to see and do for the whole family. Riverside's ‘Five Points’ area is a trendy bohemian neighborhood with unique shopping, quaint antique stores, and art galleries, buzzing sidewalk cafés and busy restaurants and vibrant nightclubs. King Street has become the new food and beer district, with some excellent breweries and restaurants. The outstanding Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens overlooks the St. Johns River and shouldn’t be missed. Other top attractions to explore in the area include the Riverside Arts Market, Memorial Park, and the Shoppes of Avondale.

Overlooking the St. Johns River, Downtown Jacksonville’s North and South banks are surrounded by the skyscrapers of the Fortune 500 companies that call the city home, yet boast a contemporary, urban vibe and relaxed ambiance. Thousands of city workers flock to the banks of the river to enjoy the wealth of lunch and dining options, ranging from casual cafés to fine dining establishments, as well as a variety of nightlife options, from buzzing bars to elegant lounges.

The Southbank Riverwalk is one 1/4-mile wooden boardwalk that winds its way along the river, offering a great place to walk, jog or run or sit on the benches and soak up the beautiful views. Stroll down to the famous Friendship Fountain at the west end of the Southbank Riverwalk, which is one of the city’s most popular attractions and perfect for a quiet picnic or romantic evening under the stars. Enjoy magnificent skyline vistas from the deck of The Barge, a new 120-by-45-foot floating venue that is anchored at various locations along the riverbank and used for concerts and other themed community events.
