Moving to Jacksonville

A 30-something's take on the Jacksonville life. Discovering the beach, places to eat, 5 points and more in the city of overpasses.

Family Adventure at Clark's

All around town I'm on a mission to find the perfect blend of great food and just the right ambiance. One of my first discoveries was Clark's Fish Camp - a place full of taxidermy, treats, endless meats and wild decor!

Triva, Drinks and The Irish!

Spend a night playing trivia, sipping whiskey and eatin' Irish grub at this beachside pub!

Where the trivia hosts are friendly and the malt vinegar is waiting.

Try Lynch's!

Steampunk dining in Riverside

Kickbacks is a steampunk adventure full of industrial decor with metal winding staircases, the longest beer list ever (get a flight on a weeknight) and crazy food choices!

Plan your Steampunk meal at Kickbacks

Black Sheep at Five Points

Had to go here twice it was so delicious.

Happy hour and fancy eats

Beachside fun at the Pier

Tacos. Surf N Turf. Mahi. Beer specials and the nearby allure of a live band at The Wreck.

A taco in paradise?

Jax Life

I was thinking about running somewhere new
I was considering walking under trees after dark
I imagined sitting by the Saint John’s River and watching the ripples roll by
I thought of digging my feet in Jax beach sand and leaning against the crests of the dunes
I got in my car and rode over bridges and peeked across water to see city lights
I pictured golf course stretches and waterside Christmas trees at the bay
I moved right into the arms of a holiday

The day I left Orlando I took my first trek up the right angle
Escape toward Daytona
Tag the beach
Then race up I-95
Towards home
A new home
