Mandarin is the southernmost part of the greater Jacksonville area. It is located on the eastern bank of the St. John’s River, and San Jose Blvd runs right along the other side of the neighborhood. Close to Southside, many of the activities and attractions in these two areas run together, but Mandarin is also a community all its own. While mostly residential, it is also an up-and-coming section of the city when it comes to shopping, dining, and nightlife.
The area is steeped in local history and was once called home by the author Harriet Beecher Stowe and the painter Lee Adams. The oak trees overflowing with Spanish moss will definitely give you that old Florida vibe, and you can make trips to some of Mandarin’s historical sites like the Mandarin Museum and the St. Joseph Mission Schoolhouse, which will all be right in your backyard.
Mandarin is a great blend of what’s new and old, what’s up-and-coming and what’s been around for centuries. And the homes in this area are an eclectic mix as well of classic and state-of-the-art. There’s something in this area for every budget, and when you spend the day out with friends or family in Mandarin’s contemporary shopping plazas and then return to your cozy new residence, you’ll know you’ve truly come home.
