Jefferson East


Jefferson East is coming together with new million-dollar riverfront housing, plenty of infill family homes and town homes and a reviving commercial district.

The up-and-coming area boasts active, close-knit neighborhoods, a yacht club, canalfront living and riverfront parks, plus new shopping centers filled with amenities.

Its big event is Jazzin' on Jefferson in June, which brings thousands to the district for two days of music and merriment each year.
