What a great place to live! If you aren't living here, then it's still a great place to visit just for a stroll through the shaded parks. A quite welcoming change of pace from the industrial vibe from downtown just several miles North.

This is one of the more beautiful areas in Jacksonville. The river is my go-to place to relax and meditate. The nature there is amazing.

Visiting this neighbourhood is the number 7 ranked thing to do in Jacksonville? It is a fairly nice neighbourhood, but I cannot see how this counts as an activity. Nothing special here other than a couple of restaurants, ice cream shops and a couple of...More

It was very much one of the scenic parks there. A very very relaxing place to go sit at & enjoy nature at its finest!!! Has a big fountain near the water & the breeze from it makes it even more pleasurable & not hot!...More

I enjoyed a day tooling around the Riverside historic area. Got my hair cut at Hair Peace, searching for treasures at Southern Crossings Antiques Mall and lunch at Hawkers. Grab your best friend and spend a low-key day in this charming historic area.

The area is beautiful with turn of the century home which are well preserved and each so different. I never tire of walking through. I see something new each time.

I hope is not going out of business. It was Monday at lunch and it was very empty. This is a very nice neighborhood and I hope they keep the business going. Support your local stores and restaurants.

There are Bed and Breakfast home on Riverdale ave, near the famous FIVE POINTS, there are lots of different restaurants, my fav is Derby, and lots of unique stores. As a hotel/motel your nearest stay will be downtown.
