Riverside/5 Points

I am so proud to call Jacksonville my hometown &  are so many things to love about this city! I love that Jax gives me a small town feel- while also being a big city with so much to offer. From nature trails to secret speakeasies to unique food finds- Jacksonville has it all. My favorite part of Jacksonville is Riverside/5 Points. With its rich arts scene, delicious food from trendy restaurants, unique bars and gastropubs, specialty coffee shops, and so much more, Riverside is a tough neighborhood to beat. I might be biased though- I live there!

Local Coffee Shops

The first thing I did when I moved to Jacksonville in 2016 was scope out all of the coffee shops. And since then, the coffee shop community has grown so much and there are so many amazing spots for a latte! From seasonal drinks to coffee flights, each coffee shop offers their own unique menu and overall vibe. Make sure to check out our Coffee Shops Guide and check them out for yourself!

Concerts at Daily's Place

I moved to Jacksonville in 2018, not thinking I was going to fall in love with it. But I sure did. I love that you can have the beach, the city, the lake, and the country feel. My favorite activity in Jacksonville is attending concerts at the Daily’s Place. I also love finding new restaurants on the water!
