Walkable Neighborhoods Jacksonville

Walkability:  The New / Old Trend in Jacksonville Living

As the suburbs of Jacksonville continue to sprawl in all directions, and the overall population growth continues to swell, there is one thing for certain:  Residents of all kinds are attracted to the Intown areas of Jacksonville FL:  San Marco, Avondale, Riverside, St Nicholas, and Ortega.  

There's just something about walking down the road a few blocks to grab a coffee... at something other than Starbucks... you know, something "local".  Or maybe you want to grab a glass of wine or a cocktail at something other than the latest franchise opening.  That's what you get with Intown Living:  You get original, unique, often times quirky.  It's the best. 

Popular Intown Living areas:

San Marco 

Top rated schools keep San Marco high on the list of intown locations.

Take your kids to one of those A rated school by walking or biking, that's how close they are! It's not just the schools, it's the walkability and the sense of community you'll get in San Marco.

Live within walking distance to some of the best dining spots, community theatre, coctail hours, movie theater - all within a setting of beautiful Oak trees draped in moss and historic homes.

Visit San Marco


Historic and walkable combined with a large diversity in home types.

Avondale offers access to the shoppes of Avondale, one of the better strips of retail and restaurants in the historic districts. You'll stroll down to grab a slice of pizza at Mellow Mushroom or grab an after dinner drink and desert at Biscotti's.

Homes range from chic bungalows to sprawling luxury waterfront homes.

Visit Avondale


The up and comer is currently Riverside.

Riverside has gone through a huge turnover in the past 20 years and doesn't appear to be stopping any time soon. Diverse and eclectic community with pockets of thriving small business.

Make sure you give Riverside a good look before everyone else figures it out!

Visit Riverside


A little more residential and a little less urban.

Ortega has long been a popular intown location that is just a bit away from the more urban core.

Great waterfront opportunities are available throughout Ortega as well as historic neighborhoods and one of the best, if not the best, private clubs in town: Timuquana Country Club.

Visit Ortega

St Nicholas

St Nicholas is loaded with opportunity.

Often overlooked but loaded with value is St Nicholas. It's a small community just to the East of San Marco that offers beautiful homes and waterfront properties.

As downtown Jax continues to redevelop, and San Marco continues to grow, we anticipate St Nicholas will start to see higher demand as it's a current great value for intown living.
