Fell in love with JAX! My husband and I did a tour through the Riverside neighborhood Jan 2013. It was such a memorable day. We just recently moved to Jax and I already loved everything about it but even more so after this historical tour. It was great exercise, the tour guide was informative, and we saw and heard some really beautiful things about the neighborhood and learned many historical facts. We're originally from Charleston and I feel like i know more about this city than our own. We got a really good deal through Groupon and are wanting to do it again in another area. We got to make a day out of it and enjoy dinner at 5 points. It was definitely a day that my husband and i haven't had in such a long time- fun, relaxed, and wistful
We did the San Marco tour and loved it. We plan to do every tour over time.
This was the BEST 3 hours we've spent in a long time! Wow! This was SO MUCH FUN! We can't say enough good things about this adventure. In fact, I would even take this out of the TOUR category and place it under the ADVENTURE category! Our guide, LEIGH, was so knowledgeable about the Riverside/Avondale area that you'd think she knew everyone who lived there! As we rode along the quiet, tree-lined streets, it was as if we had just entered Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. Everyone seemed to know LEIGH. The residents, merchants, Postal employees, UPS, Sanitation and even Yard workers all waved and greeted her (and us) along the way. We learned so much interesting history and information about the area. Leigh will provide you with snacks, water, and everything else you need to enjoy a morning or afternoon around Jacksonville. She even takes pictures for you during the adventure. So worth the $$$. She really goes over and above to make sure you enjoy this adventure. What a treat!
HANDS DOWN THE BEST THING TO DO IN JACKSONVILLE. Whenever my wife and I visit a new place, we always ask the locals: "If you had one day to spend here, what would you do?" I've lived in Jacksonville for 5 years and have always struggled with what my answer would be with an out of town guest.
Now I know my answer: e2ride Bike Tour!!!
I'm partial to the Riverside Avondale tour (I mean come on, it's only one of the best neighborhoods in the country), but all the tours are remarkable.
Throw your inhibitions into the wind and book your tour today. It's not a rigorous ride, so don't let the bike ride scare you. It's a perfect way to spend a nice day!
My husband and I just moved to Jacksonville recently and this was a perfect way to learn so much history. Leigh was very personable and knowledgeable. This is a great way to burn calories and educate yourself at the same time!
