When was the last time you “hopped the ditch?”
Despite being one of Jacksonville’s greatest assets, visiting the Beaches is often an afterthought for Jax residents west of the Intracoastal.
The area, while technically not part of Jacksonville city limits, is not a whole lot further away than any other given destination in our impossibly-large city. And with so much to offer its visitors, it’s rather baffling why more of us don’t routinely take advantage of the Beaches.
To help provide some motivation, we’ve highlighted a few fun things you can do out at the Beaches. So go ahead, plan a trip across the Intracoastal this weekend – you won’t regret it!
Freebird Live may be long gone, but there’s still plenty of live music at the Beaches.
You can catch great local and regional acts at Beaches venues like Blue Jay Listening Room, Lynch’s Irish Pub, Surfer the Bar, and more. And on weekends, the Seawalk Pavilion amphitheater in Jax Beach usually has something going on as well.
There’s almost never a night without at least one live show going on near the Beaches – so if live music is your passion, the Beaches should be your top destination.
