Avondale, Riverside and Ortega

If you’re looking for riverfront and historic homes with modern-day amenities and city flair, look no further than Riverside/Avondale. Riverside/Avondale is the largest National Historic District in the U.S known for elegant homes in a multitude of styles and offers something for every price and lifestyle.

This community winds along the west bank of the St. Johns River and has become one of Jacksonville’s most pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods offering condos and apartments within walking distance of boutique shops and eateries including two of the city’s best parks, Memorial Park and Riverside Park. Every Saturday from 10am-3pm, rain or shine, you can visit the Riverside Arts Market under the Fuller Warren Bridge which features everything from fresh produce to fine arts.

Drive south along the St. Johns River in Riverside/Avondale and, as the river curves, you will reach Ortega, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Jacksonville. Recently named the 46th wealthiest neighborhood in the U.S. by Worth magazine, Ortega is home to the Florida Yacht Club, the oldest yacht club in the state. Like Riverside/Avondale, Ortega boasts quiet, charming tree-lined streets and beautiful homes ranging from quaint to breathtaking. The community’s shopping district is the staging area for Ortega’s annual Fall Festival where you’re sure to see horse-drawn carriages offering rides, lots of families having plain, simple fun. Not far from Ortega is the waterfront area known as Venetia and the home to the Timuquana Country Club. Venetia offers quiet neighborhoods with well-manicured lawns and award-winning public schools. Living in Venetia was once considered to be country living.

Jacksonville’s has the 3rd largest military presence in the country and the Jacksonville Naval Air Base is just south of Ortega. Every other year, you can spectate the Air and Sea Show which alternate every year as host with Jacksonville Beach.
