Riverside Avondale

Like the architectural styles the neighborhoods include, Riverside and Avondale represent diversity at its best. Where else can you find the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens cozied up next to the fun and funky Five Points shopping district? Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and named one of the top places to retire in the U.S. by Money magazine, the combined community includes every type of architecture — from Tudor and Queen Anne to Prairie style and Mediterranean Revival. And don’t forget, there’s almost three miles of riverfront property. Although the St. Johns is visible at many street ends throughout the district, one of the best vantage points is at Memorial Park in Riverside. Speaking of green spaces, the area just minutes from downtown includes everything from pocket parks to 35 1/2-acre Boone Park. Nearby on St. Johns Avenue is the Avondale shopping district, an upscale shopping and dining destination. 800.733.2668 or
