Best neighborhoods in Jacksonville, Florida

A dream move to Florida could mean that you are considering Jacksonville as a possible destination. If this is the case, you may be wondering where to begin the search for your new home. Here are a few details on a couple of neighborhoods that might be just what you are looking for.

The first option is Northside. This used to be a commercial and industrial area, but residential developments are starting to take over. This neighborhood is handy for the airport, zoo and parks, and it is only a short distance from the Downtown area. Some of the homes here are on plots of an acre or more and Northside is a popular option for those who are looking for modern homes.

Your relocation to Florida could also take you to the Riverside area of Jacksonville. Named after Riverside Avenue, this area used to be known as one of the most beautiful areas of the city. Some of the homes here date back to the early part of the 20th century and it is also close to the Downtown area of the city. With trendy bars and restaurants, this area is very popular with young professionals.

If you have an artistic or creative side, your move to Florida could see you opt for the San Marco district. This is a very creative and artsy area south of the Downtown district. Developed in the 1920s, it is named and modeled after the San Marco Square in Venice. The area has plenty of historic buildings, trendy restaurants and unique shops for you to browse, as well as some beautiful homes to consider.
