Nestled just north of downtown Jacksonville is a unique place featuring public art, breweries, and hip restaurants among majestic oaks. We are talking about the Springfield Historic District: the oldest neighborhood in the city.
Established in 1869, Springfield is full of Southern charm and is the most bikeable area in all of Jacksonville. Highlights include:
Disc golf is a fun game for all ages, making it one of the greatest lifetime fitness sports available. It's played much like traditional golf, but players aim to throw discs into baskets rather than using a club to strike a ball. The object of the game is to complete the hole in the fewest number of throws. The course at Klutho Park is beginner friendly with a variety of low ceiling shots.
At Hyperion, you'll find bold, rebellious beer. The brewmaster's goal is to serve an endlessly rotating line-up of beers ranging from time-honored classics to those that push the limits of what modern craft beer can be. Guests can enjoy their time inside or on the patio featuring twinkling lights, hay bales, and plenty of seating. Beers may include Selene Citrine, Sesqui Saison, and Phoebe's P.B.
Bleu Chocolat was created by two self-proclaimed island girls who share a passion for chocolate. Chef Erika Davis is one of the country's top chefs and was one of the first contestants on Top Chef Just Desserts. She spent three years in Nassau working for a chocolatier and makes her delicious creations with beans from the southern Caribbean. Bonbon flavors include white chocolate coconut, dark chocolate key lime, and blue sea salt caramel.
