Jacksonville is one big city! And, I am a firm believer that there is a niche here for everyone. My husband and I found our home about a year ago in Riverside and we couldn’t be happier with the eclectic charm, tree-lined streets, walk-ability and the local business this community offers. Here are a few of the spots that make Riverside a favorite!
Eat: If you are looking for a casual night out, stop by Hawkers for the best of Asian street food in a fun, urban setting. With so many delicious options, I recommend ordering a few appetizers and entrees to share with friends. Hobnob is one of Riverside’s newer eateries in a modern space. Whether you are celebrating or just want a top notch meal, you won’t be disappointed with this upscale and creative menu. The Kaffir Lime Crusted Sea Bass is pretty incredible!
Drink: Black Sheep in Five Points offers a wide selection of cocktails, beer and wine. I recommend the Cortez Cooler (sub vodka for tequila for a refreshing twist on this signature drink!). Sip on your favorite beverage on the rooftop bar and lounge overlooking downtown and the St. John’s River! While you are there, give their farm fresh food menu a try as well!
Play: Check out the Cummer Museum for both indoor and outdoor viewing pleasure. Admire almost 5,000 pieces within the permanent art collection or stroll through the 2.5 acres of historic gardens!
Shop: Stop by Tenley’s and you are sure to walk out the door with something beautiful! This stylish boutique, located on Oak Street, offers trendy clothes, accessories, candles and so much more.
Caffeinate: No matter your favorite vehicle for espresso, Brew has you covered! Walk down the streets of Historic Five Points and pop in to this locally owned shop for a morning or mid-afternoon pick-me-up! You will also find a selection of craft brews and creatively topped toast.
