Older/scenic areas

When I travel, I like to drive thru different neighborhoods to see how people live. Especially older and/or "historic" and/or scenic areas. What parts of Jacksonville would you recommend?

Riverside and Avondale are great areas. The Springfield area is also an older area that is going through a revitalization process, but there are some beautiful old homes there.

Thanks, I had a good trip. An airport employee also recommended San Marco area, which I also enjoyed, as well as Springfield. I'll have more time next trip.

Thanks for checking back in! Glad you had a good time. San Marco is a nice area - good suggestion by the JIA employee!!
