Featured Neighborhood - Atlantic Beach
Updated: Apr 22, 2020
Welcome to our quaint little beach town, located just over 25 minutes East of the Jacksonville Metro Area! This quiet and natural beach city has just over 13,000 residents and is perfect for the outdoor enthusiast. With state parks nestles along the Intracoastal and the beach alike, there is plenty of camping, fishing, trails, biking, surfing, and kayaking / paddle boarding to be had. Boasting one of the states most beautiful golf courses, Atlantic Beach Country Club has everything your family could want! The city is proud to offer everything from affordable beach housing options to luxury beach-front estates. Keep reading and follow the links below to see what I love about Atlantic Beach!
Local Bites and Brews
Hungry? Atlantic Beach has some delicious local restaurants and bars that will satisfy any foodie’s desire. Looking for a favorite local bar, Culhane's Irish Pub or Ragtime Tavern should be on your list! Reve Brewing and Brewz have that homegrown brewery vibe. Feeling like a gourmet burger with a side of literary history? The atmosphere at Poe’s Tavern fosters a unique indoor / outdoor dining experience. Coop 303 puts an upscale twist on southern eats, and includes a great bar and rooftop terrace area. We’ve got all you need to properly celebrate Taco Tuesday at Cantina Louie. Have a healthier experience in mind? You can’t beat Southern Roots: Filling Station, who use locally sourced, organic ingredients to craft a vegan menu with something for everyone!
Despite being near one of the nation’s most vast cities by land mass, Atlantic Beach is a walker’s haven. With bikeability scores in the 80’s and walkability scores in the 70’s, AB is considered very walkable and bikeable!
So what goes into a walkability score? Well-connected streets, comfortable bike lanes / sidewalks / medians, nearby schools / shopping / restaurants, pedestrian-centric design, parks and public places, population density, and a discernable neighborhood center.
Well, I would obviously start with the beach. There are public access points with parking (largest area is at 19th St.), but the beach still maintains its hidden gem status with residential and few tourists. But if sand volleyball or soaking up the rays are a little too mundane for you, try surfing at The Poles in Hanna Park. Run the trails, fish, camp, kayak, or paddle board at Dutton Island Preserve. Golf at Atlantic Beach Country Club. Bike the beautiful oak lined streets of Old Atlantic Beach. Take a quick ride to Historic Mayport where you can eat fish and shrimp brought in right from the dock (Safe Harbor Seafood Market or Singleton's Seafood Shack), or hop on the St. Johns River Ferry to check out some amazing beaches / parks to the north!
Don’t forget the playgrounds, baseball, basketball, skate parks, pavilions, and tennis courts located at Bull Memorial Park, Jack Russell Park, and Donner Park.
Most residents are zoned for Atlantic Beach Elementary, Mayport Middle School, and Fletcher High School. Please check the Duval County School Zone Map.
