Riverside and Avondale are neighboring districts west of downtown, each of which has a rich art and cultural scene to discover. In Riverside, you can spend hours exploring its heritage buildings, Cummer Museum and the shops and galleries of the bohemian Five Points area.
Be sure to time your visit to check out the long-running Riverside Arts Market, held on Saturdays from 10 am to 3 pm. Browse the eclectic works of local artists, pick up some fresh fruit from the farmers’ stands and indulge in some freshly-baked gourmet treats. Avondale is mainly a residential area, but it’s also a hot spot for dining and boutique shopping.
