Where to Live
With the development of the River City Marketplace, demand for housing has skyrocketed. You’ll find a mixture of single-family, multi-story houses to multifamily condominium blocks scattered throughout the neighborhood. Many of the newer communities, built within the past ten years, are in the northern area of New Berlin Road and provide the most modern amenities.
Where to Eat
Hit up the River City Marketplace in the latest in fine dining. Everything from the freshest seafood, Italian cuisine, and Southern-style cooking are found within this square-mile development. Alternatively, a number of eateries found along New Berlin Road, and provide fast and high-quality service to all of their customers.
What You'll See
There is a very young vibe in this neighborhood. Young families invested heavily during the height of construction, and have remained there since. It’s not uncommon to see clean-cut business people crowding the bars during the weeknights. However, the area brings out college students on the weekends, looking for a more low-key vibe.
Friday Night Fun
Head to one of the numerous bars at the River City Marketplace and enjoy a craft cocktail. If you’re looking for a calmer environment, visit one of the local theaters with a friend, or spend it enjoying a quiet meal at one of the more eclectic restaurants on New Berlin Road.
The Perfect Sunday
Shopping is a popular Sunday pastime, as the mall provides numerous options for the most discriminating of customers. Head north to Amelia Island, and experience Northeast Florida’s finest in golfing. With an option of seven courses, you’re guaranteed to see some of the most spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Easy commute to downtown • Florida’s best golf courses • Great shopping.
Locals Don't Love
Few locally-owned businesses • Not very walkable • Relatively far from southern Jacksonville.
