Jacksonville Neighborhoods With Best Boutique Shops

Shopping at large department stores, national brands, and longstanding chains has its advantages. The prices are often cheaper, sales are more frequent, and many even have fancy tech that allows customers to accumulate points or some form of credit that eventually leads to even more savings. But what larger stores often lack is character, real expertise about a product, and the trill of finding a truly one-of-a-kind item that wasn’t mass produced. And if we’re being honest, there’s just something a little more satisfying about supporting local small businesses that help make a neighborhood feel like a community. So the next time you're out and about, swing by any of these Jacksonville neighborhoods to find some of the best boutique shopping anywhere…

Jacksonville Communities With Pickleball Courts

Over the last several years, pickleball has become one of the most popular recreational sports enjoyed by adults and children alike. The sport can be played either indoors or outdoors, and by either two opposing players or two pairs of two players facing off against one another.

Essentially a hybrid of table tennis and standard tennis, pickleball is played on a court with paddles and a hollow ball.
