Around Far Northwest Jacksonville
Where to Live
Divided into small close-knit neighborhoods, Far Northwest offers traditional single-family homes that accommodate families of all sizes. Bordered by greenery and tall oak trees, homes off of Jones Road sit nestled in the midst of wooded areas creating the essence of nature. Brand new apartment rentals just north of West Beaver Street provide a good mix of luxury and affordability.
Where to Eat
From old fashioned country-style cooking to your familiar fast food chain restaurants, there’s a flavor to satisfy your palette. Southern barbecue compliments the menu when you head down New Kings Road. You’ll also find your remedy for that after dinner craving for the sweet stuff at the local ice cream shop.
What You'll See
This thriving community continues to re-build to improve the livelihood of its fellow residents. A yearly event called “District of Soul Festival” is held in order to celebrate progress in the neighborhood. A local coffee shop has become a place of gathering for those wanting to catch up with a friend or to simply read a book. Lots of greenery and wooded areas still remain on this side of town setting the tone for country-style living in a flourishing city.
Friday Night Fun
Test your skills in a game of pool at a neighborhood sports bar on Beaver Street. Make it a karaoke night and show your talent or lack thereof at a local karaoke bar. Enjoy a date night and grab a late night dinner at one of the various eating establishments on New Kings Road.
The Perfect Sunday
Visit Dinsmore Historical museum for artifacts, articles, and pictures that share the history of the Dinsmore community. Grab a homestyle breakfast and fresh coffee at a local coffee shop on Moncrieff Road. Take the boat out to Trout River and spend the day fishing. Locals have been known to catch smallmouth bass, gar, and blue catfish.
