Live Like A Local In Jacksonville

If you have just moved to Jacksonville and are looking for the popular places to dine, the best places to shop, or where to get a haircut, you are in for a treat. Jacksonville is famous for the great fire of 1901 and the fact that it is a city named after the seventh United States president Andrew Jackson. Here are places you can go with friends on your day out to the city.

Dine Like A Jaxon/Jacksonvillian

Locals who love French cuisine love coming to Restaurant Orsay, one of the warmest and most inviting restaurants in Jacksonville. The Southern hospitality coupled with the fresh locally sourced ingredients make it the ideal restaurant to dine with a friend. The restaurant is a winner of many awards for food, wine, and service, so it will undoubtedly win you over.

When you are in the mood of sinking your teeth in some amazingly cooked meat, make your way to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse; one of the best places to eat steak. The secrets behind the amazing food here is the fresh ingredients, outstanding cooking skills, and the passion for perfection. The perfect steak is often finished with butter and fresh chopped parsley.

Col. Mustard's produces Phat burgers, the kind that you need whenever you feel like you need to have a burger, some fries, and soda the way it is done in Jacksonville. These amazing burgers are fresh, always hot, and they have a great taste. One more reason why this burger is ideal to satisfy your craving is the fact that the bun is just 2% while the burger is 98%.

The Best Places To Shop In Jacksonville

The Avenues is a great place for you to start doing any shopping because the huge mall has over 1.1 million square feet of shopping space. Some of the stores available in this mall include J.C. Penney, Dillard’s, H&M, American Eagle, Chico’s, MAC Cosmetics, and many other stores. Friends can have a great time at The Avenues.

The Beaches Town Center is a great place to go shopping, since, in addition to having numerous shops and restaurants, the relaxing palm-tree lined courtyard makes this center warm and welcoming. Buy some jewelry, art pieces, souvenirs, and clothes from the stores at the center. This center is accessible at night since it is common to find Art Walks and live music events happening there on a regular basis.

You can buy diamonds for the significant person in your life at Beard’s Jewelry, a great jewelry shop that sells authentic and refined diamonds. This store has experts working round the clock to make sure that clients never purchase a product that they will regret, and they collaborate with the customer to get them the right diamonds for them at the right price.
