San Jose Boulevard is a major Jacksonville artery that will take travelers to I-295 to the south and straight into the heart of downtown Jacksonville to the north (where it becomes Hendricks Avenue before meeting the Fuller Warren Bridge). It is a mere couple of westerly miles to US Highway 1, which will take drivers north to I-95 or south to historic Saint Augustine. The neighborhood of San Jose itself contains plenty of shopping and dining opportunities. From chain restaurants and privately owned award-winning dining establishments (like Osaka Japanese Restaurant), to antique shops (San Jose Antique Mall) and big box stores like Target and Wal-Mart, San Jose has something for everyone.
