Southside Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Southside neighborhood of Jacksonville is a sprawling area that meanders along the path of Southside Boulevard and consists of the following zip codes: 32256, 32246, and 32216. Southside is roughly bordered by Florida 9A, I-95, and Atlantic Blvd.
Southside is one of the most southern areas of the Jacksonville metropolis, but it is packed with things to do and at the center of highway interchanges that will take a traveler to another part of the city in just minutes. Primarily a residential and shopping district, Southside offers plenty of affordable, family-style housing and every kind of shop imaginable.
The two main destinations in Southside are the Avenues Mall and the St. Johns Town Center. The Avenues Mall is a hip shopping destination that frequently hosts searches for national competitions like American Idol. It is common for celebrities and politicians to make appearances at the Avenues as well. St. Johns Town Center is a sprawling, community-designed shopping plaza of upscale destinations, such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Coach. Fine dining is also available on the premises at establishments like the Capital Grille and Mitchell’s Fish Market.
As Southside is centrally located near some of the most important highways in Jacksonville (I-95, Southside Blvd, Atlantic Blvd, Florida 9A and Beach Blvd), it is only minutes from some of Jacksonville’s most popular events. Residents can quickly drive to downtown Jacksonville to enjoy the annual Jacksonville Jazz Festival (held in late May) or the rowdy Florida vs. Georgia football game (held in late October). The Jacksonville Light Parade in late November is a not-to-be-missed, signature event. A parade of festively lighted boats will float past the downtown riverfront for the enjoyment of the celebratory crowd. Southside residents are uniquely situated to enjoy all that greater Jacksonville has to offer while still living in a neighborhood that has it all.
