Around Near Northwest
Where to Live
Due to the area’s size, your housing options vary. To the far northwest, you will encounter the non-incorporated town of Baldwin, featuring largely single-family homes in a rural setting. Scattered throughout the rest of the community are mainly single-story houses with modest ornamentation. Anywhere you live, you’re never too far away from downtown or the airport.
Where to Eat
Aside from traditional American cuisine, you will find a multitude of convenient options at the River City Marketplace. Your options here are elegant seafood eateries and high-end bars featuring the best in craft brews and cocktails. If you’re looking for something cheap and quick, find a quality meal at any of the fast food options nearby.
What You'll See

Industrial parks occupy a large portion of the southwestern and central sections, and act as one of the largest sources of employment in the area. With close proximity to Jacksonville International Airport, it’s not uncommon to see tourists frequenting the area.
Friday Night Fun
Head over to the River City Marketplace for a quick brew with your work buddies, or buy a ticket at the cinema to see a movie with your date. There’s plenty of sushi options available, but, if you’re not a seafood person, don’t worry – there are a variety of places to choose from.
