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 to do out at the Beaches. So go ahead, plan a trip across the Intracoastal this weekend – you won’t regret it!
The “beach bars” are famous for being perhaps the most vibrant nightlife scene in all of Northeast Florida.
There’s a little of something for every style at the Beaches. There’s the buzzing, always-packed atmospheres of places like Lynch’s and The Lemon Bar, craft brewery spots like Reve Brewing, and plenty of dive bars in between.
Best of all, many of the most popular bars are within a mile radius of each other – making it easy to just walk from venue to venue without worrying about transportation.
