Young Professionals

Downtown is the center of the action for Young Professionals in Jacksonville. In addition to being the center of the business district, it's also the center of the city for dining, bars, performing arts, museums, sports arenas, and direct access to the river for recreation. It also has the highest concentration of apartments and bars in the city.

Five Points Village


If you favor a groovier and quieter vibe than downtown then look at Five Points. The coolest area in the city, filled with vintage shops, and plenty of entertainment options. While there are high rises in the area the housing choices trend towards bungalows and craft-style homes.

Jacksonville doesn’t have a central LGBTQ+ neighborhood as some big cities do but Riverside is a good place to start your search. Home to the LGBTQ+ community center it is also where the annual pride parade is held. San Marco is another option if Art Deco architecture and upscale shopping and dining is your thing.

Jacksonville is hugely popular with retirees with an incredible variety of open neighborhoods, gated 55+ communities, and structured retirement facilities throughout the area. Riverside is a popular neighborhood for retirees who want an active social and cultural experience all within walking distance. Tons of waterfront condo and townhome options make it an easy to manage choice if you’re not interested in the more structured 55+ communities.
