Riverside & Avondale

Riverside & Avondale

These two communities on the west bank of the St. John’s River are primarily residential, containing some of the city's most notable examples of historical residential architecture. The areas are characterized by numerous bungalows and spacious, graceful homes.

Listed in the National Registry of Historic Places, Riverside is one of Jacksonville’s oldest yet trendiest neighborhoods. Voted as one of the country’s top 10 Great Neighborhoods, Riverside & Avondale have a unique mix of history, culture, charm, and modern design. An eclectic mix of people make up this happening area’s population. And while million dollar waterfront homes and upscale apartment buildings are the norm, there is nothing pretentious about this quarter. Instead, its vibe is one of community, urban living, and the “support local” movement. This neighborhood celebrates the arts, too. The Riverside Arts Market is a Saturday staple for residents. And no visit to Riverside is complete without a trip to the world-class Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, which features a spectacular Tuscan-inspired garden that overlooks the St. Johns River.

Riverside's Five Points area is a bohemian neighborhood with coffee shops, outdoor cafés, one-of-a-kind shopping, nightclubs, antique stores, and more. Another local food & beer district can be found on King Street. Locally owned restaurants, bars and breweries are call the street home and bring in hundreds of visitors of all ages every weekend.
