Buyers can find what they're looking for with the wide range of designs in Riverside.

Where to Live

North of College Street tends to be the region with the most affordable housing. A mixture of historical houses, many of these have affordable prices within the range of many budgets. Closer to the river, along the avenues of Riverside and St. Johns, the single-family homes retain their historical character while most have been updated with modern amenities. Living near King Street or Margaret Streets are your best bets if you want to live within walking distance of the bars and restaurants.

Where to Eat

Though a small commercial district, Five Point offers a multitude of choices, varying from Asian street fare to pizzerias to Mexican dives. The King Street District, running from north to south, blends a bar atmosphere with a restaurant vibe in addition to the multitude of gastropubs that lines its streets.

What You'll See

It is home to young families living next to college students. The weekends swell with numerous bar patrons and party-goers looking to experience the diverse and active nightlife.

Friday Night Fun

Head to the King Street District with a group of friends. You can hit one of the whiskey bars, go dancing at one of the clubs, watch a game while sipping a pint of beer, or grab a slice of pizza at one of the locally owned eateries. If you’re looking for a slower pace, head to Memorial Park where you can enjoy a quiet stroll with moonlit views of the St. Johns River.

The Perfect Sunday

Grab a hookah from the neighborhood shisha bar, and enjoy the quiet conversation under sunny skies with a good friend.
