October 5, 2021

 | 

The First Coast is constantly welcoming new businesses of every variety. With a guarantee for a hot and interesting restaurant or business to experience in the area, Northeast Florida is a wonderful place to live. “Businesses that come to the First Coast are greeted with open arms by the thriving community. With so many heavy traffic commercial areas and a bustling calendar of events in the area, there is no shortage of opportunity for businesses to flourish,” shares Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson. We’re sharing a few new businesses to put on your radar as they gear up to call Northeast Florida home. 

 

Tru by Hilton

A new hotel is coming to South Jacksonville! Tru by Hilton will be coming to the Bowden area near Southpoint. The city issued a permit in early September 2021 to build the four-story, 45,000-square-foot hotel that will cost more than $6 million. This new location joins two other Tru by Hilton properties in the area. 

 

The Sugar Factory

Have you heard? The self-proclaimed sweetest place on Earth is getting ready to call Jacksonville home. Markets at Town Center will be welcoming a new occupant to the former Brio Tuscan Grille property: Las Vegas-based Sugar Factory American Brasserie. The Sugar Factory, which was founded in 2009, operates fifteen locations in the United States and four overseas. The location in the Town Center will be the chain’s fourth location in Florida. The Sugar Factory is known for over-the-top sundaes, cocktails, and milkshakes while also offering a variety of savory pasta, steak, and burger dishes. 

 

Dolly Llama Waffle Master 

Another sweet business is coming to Northeast Florida! The Dolly Llama Waffle Master will likely be coming to Ponte Vedra Beach in 2022. The shop’s handcrafted waffle cones are filled with ice cream and can be customized with a variety of tasty toppings. This will be the first Dolly Llama location in Florida. The concept debuted in 2017 in Los Angeles. Menu favorites include the Cinnalover signature shake, Dolly’s Dream signature waffle, and Snow Storm ice cream. 

 

With Northeast Florida being such an attractive area for businesses, there is no shortage of new shops to explore.

5 Hidden Gem Neighborhoods in Northeast Florida Worth Visiting

May 17, 2021

 | 

No matter where you explore in Northeast Florida you are bound to find beauty and interest. “Northeast Florida is richly diverse and provides residents a wide variety of activities, restaurants, and sites to enjoy and make wonderful memories. Each neighborhood has a unique culture that truly enriches the First Coast,” shares Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson. We’re sharing some new, some old, and some neighborhoods you may have forgotten about in Northeast Florida you need to check out! 

 

San Marco

Take a stroll along tree-lined San Marco Square and you’ll see there is no shortage of incredible dining, boutiques, and art galleries. The Mediterranean-influenced neighborhood which is just a few minutes from Downtown Jacksonville is a perfect place to spend an afternoon exploring. A few of our favorite spots to visit in historic San Marco are Grape and Grain Exchange, Aardwolf Brewing Company, Stellers Gallery, and Heyday!

 

Springfield

As the oldest neighborhood in Jacksonville, Springfield offers residents a historic and eclectic experience. Established in 1869, Springfield, located just north of Downtown Jacksonville, was home to the city’s wealthiest residents. Today, the neighborhood is filled with restored mansions, hip restaurants, and locally-owned shops. Springfield also hosts popular festivals including Porchfest. Be sure to make a pit stop at Strings Sports Brewery while touring Springfield. 

 

Riverside/Avondale

Antique meets modern in charming, historic Riverside and Avondale! Home to the world-class Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, you won’t want to miss the charm and culture that Riverside and Avondale provide. Drive around the area and you’ll see gorgeous million dollar waterfront homes, locally-owned restaurants, and beautiful parks. Memorial Park, Pinegrove Market and Deli, and Kickback’s Gastropub are definitely places to visit in the area. Oh, and for dessert Whit’s Frozen Custard

 

Ponte Vedra Beach

If you have visited Ponte Vedra Beach before, you likely only skimmed the surface of what this stunning resort town has to offer. Prior to becoming a prominent luxury town with world-class golf courses, Ponte Vedra was a pristine wilderness home to valuable minerals giving it the nickname “Mineral City.” Discover Northeast Florida’s natural beauty with a hike at the GTM Reserve or play at TPC Sawgrass, one of the most famous golf courses in the world. Head to Ponte Vedra for date night and try LuLu’s Waterfront Grille or 3 Palms Grille.

 

Nocatee

Perhaps one of the newest go-to areas in Northeast Florida is Nocatee. Although this master-planned community hasn’t been around long, it’s definitely worth visiting! Enjoy lunch at Treylor Park (we suggest the Ahi Tuna Flatbread or the Treylor Park Nachos Grande!) or Timoti’s Seafood Shak before heading to Makk Fashions or Really Good Beer Stop. With new businesses popping up all around Nocatee, you’ll likely have more places to try each time you visit. 

 

Although all these neighborhoods have their own unique flair, one thing reigns true whether you call St. Augustine, Jacksonville, The Beaches, or anywhere in between home… Northeast Florida is the PERFECT place to live!
