Shopping & Dining

Looking to satisfy your wallet and your stomach? Jacksonville offers bountiful options to appease your shopping fix and your diverse palette. Everything you could imagine rests within the walls of the Saint Johns Town Center. The mall opened only three years ago, with the addition of 40 more stores and 4 restaurants just last year! The complex also boasts apartments and two hotels! It is truly a one-stop-shop for anything and everything.

The rapidly growing communities in Jacksonville make the city a cultural melting pot for residents and visitors to explore. However, being a Florida town, you would expect to find sandy beaches and tons of fun in the sun, right? Well you will find just that all throughout the city! Saint Johns River carves a path through the center of Jacksonville and stretches to the Atlantic Ocean. The Intracoastal Waterways create a sparkling backdrop for residents and offer tons of ways to beat the heat.
