Where to Live

No matter what your housing circumstances, there’s definitely an option for you. The Southside was developed over many decades and showcases a variety of architecture. The Baymeadows area has a mixture of mid-century bungalows and high-end townhomes. Alternatively, a number of country clubs offer a communal setting with numerous elegant homes to choose from.

Where to Eat

Baymeadows hosts a number of Asian-fusion restaurants, ranging from Vietnamese to high-end Thai. Along the boulevards of Beach and Atlantic, you’ll find German beer houses, sushi restaurants, and other convenient options. The Towncenter offers high-end elegant options for those looking for a fancy night out on the town.

What You'll See

Parts of the Southside are home to a highly educated community who primarily work in the IT and healthcare industries. It’s not uncommon to see a fun game of cricket or friends performing language exchanges over exotic meals. Likewise, families of all walks of life call the area home. The Southside enjoys a bustling and cosmopolitan vibe that residents find welcoming.

Friday Night Fun

Head out to the St. Johns Towncenter for a night of fine-dining with family and friends, feasting on great seafood or crunching down on a burger. If you’re feeling the need to shop, you can find the latest tech gadget or buy a New York Times bestseller until late at night. Head out to Beach Boulevard and lounge with relaxed conversation.

The Perfect Sunday

Walk the nature trails at the University of North Florida where you can find miles of undisturbed scenery while imagining what Florida was like before the Spanish influence. If you’re feeling a historical vibe, head to Fort Caroline, the first French settlement in North America. There you will find a replica of the fort, full of unrivalled views of the river.
