The food here is amazing! There are no chain restaurants, and there are adorable vintage shops to shop at. It's an area for younger people, but the nightlife is for a more mature audience. The houses are individually crafted and are unique in different ways.
Avondale is the best neighborhood in Jacksonville. It is walkable with sidewalks on most every street, mature trees, and a great system of paved roads. With plenty of local businesses to supply residents with food and services, it is close to downtown, 5 minutes and a short 20 minute drive to the airport.
