There is no way better to describe the inner city neighborhood nook of Riverside than as old meets new – where century old colonial homes greet graffiti walls of contemporary arts districts. It’s eclectic. It’s buzzing and happening. Best of all it’s welcoming. There is history here. There is innovation here. There is everything and everyone in between.
Some of Riverside's best bits:
Hip cafes, never ending antique halls, farm to table restaurants, a 1920′s movie theater, plenty of parks, people biking, huge old oak trees covered in Spanish moss, tattoos, craft beer breweries and tap rooms, vegan bakeries, beards and bars. All perched not too far from downtown and right beside the very wide and very beautiful St. Johns River.
