Fodor's Expert Review Neptune Beach
Between Atlantic and Jacksonville beaches, this is a great family spot. It's an excellent destination for those wishing to combine a day at the beach with other activities. Because Neptune and Atlantic beaches share Atlantic Avenue's Town Center, with its assortment of restaurants, galleries, stores, and boutiques, beachgoers can escape the sun when they're ready for great food, shopping, and live entertainment. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards (seasonal); showers. Best for: sunrise; swimming; walking.
