Fodor's Expert Review Jacksonville Beach
Enjoy the waves at one of Jacksonville's busier beaches, which stretches along the coast for 4.1 miles. A boardwalk and a bevy of beachfront restaurants and shops are also draws, so expect moderate crowds during spring and summer school breaks. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards (seasonal); parking (no fee); showers; toilets. Best for: partiers; sunrise; surfing; swimming.
