Locally owned and operated restaurants and bars are opening seemingly every day on King Street, giving this strip new life and flavors.

  • Breweries are also thriving on King Street, led by two popular craft breweries –Bold City Brewery and Intuition Ale Works  - visitors can hop on the Jax Ale Trail, stamp their passports and enjoy a local brew. Bars on King Street offer anything from 25 beers on tap to over 150 beers on tap!


  • In the late 1800s, wealthy citizens began building homes in the quaint neighborhood of Avondale. This historic district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is also designated as a local historic district by the City of Jacksonville.
  • Avondale’s sophisticated charm and oaklined avenues cater to the upscale shopper with a covey of specialty boutiques, fine galleries and gourmet eateries like The Brick, Biscottis and Orsay.
