Part two of the Jacksonville precinct series is the historic, inner city neighbourhood of San Marco.
It took us a little while to find this fine gem of a suburb. It is now quite often our go to for a night out if we're up for a quick trip over the river -- be it sitting by a bonfire at our friends river front apartment or heading out to the square for dinner and a movie...
Some of San Marco's best bits:
An independent and beautifully decorated Art Deco era cinema, quite a few delightful dining options, up market boutique clothing and gift stores, beautiful historical homes from quaint colonial revival to Mediterranean mansions, one of my favourite vintage markets, a very fine local brewery and tap room and possibly the best found gem yet - an awesome bottle shop/bar that extends (through the hidden bookshelf door), into a speak easy parlour room (I'm pretty sure every city needs one of these).
