    Beach Town Center, Atlantic & Neptune Beaches 4 more images

    by S.Ottie Written Mar 16, 2014

    Divided by Atlantic Blvd., the pedestrian-friendly communities of Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach share a the lively, beautifully landscaped Beach Town Center. Beginning at the Atlantic Blvd. beach access and spanning a few square blocks, Beach Town Center is full of funky, trendy and casual hotspots located just footsteps from the sand. Here, popular restaurants like North Beach Fish Camp, Poe's Tavern, Ragtime, Al’s Pizza, Mezza Luna, Ocean 60, Flying Iguana, Joseph’s, and Sliders -- along with other eateries, coffee and dessert shops -- draw patrons from Jacksonville and beyond in a very idyllic, friendly atmosphere. Here it is common to see swimsuit-clad bicyclists, sandy-footed just-off-the-beach pedestrians, well-groomed for a date yuppies, and family guys like myself pushing strollers loaded with beach bags and toys. At Christmas time, Beach Town Center is a wonderland of lights wrapped around the numerous palm trees that line its streets.

    St. Johns River Ferry, Jacksonville 4 more images

    by S.Ottie Written Mar 4, 2014

    Florida's only public auto ferry crosses the St. Johns River in Jacksonville. Part of scenic coastal route A1A, the St. Johns River Ferry transports cars and pedestrians alike between Historic Mayport Village, on the south side of the river, and Ft. George Island, located on the north side. There is about a half-hour between each departure time, regardless of what side of the river you are on. Passengers who leave their cars may be able to see dolphins, pelicans, large cargo ships, or even a passing cruise ship. The ferry is located just a short ride up A1A from Atlantic Beach.

    Al's Pizza

    Consistently voted best pizza in Jax by readers of various local publications, Al's Pizza is a Jacksonville area favorite. Each of the local chain's six locations has a unique, somewhat funky, somewhat trendy decor that gives it an ambience worthy of the pizzas, calzones and other favorites they create. The one in Atlantic Beach is the original. It has an eclectic yet casual feel that is just right for grabbing a bite after a day on the beach.

    Favorite Dish: Order a pizza. You know you want one.

    Beach Diner

    This "beachy" eatery in Atlantic Beach is one of my favorite breakfast spots. Cozy and comfortable this relatively small diner is a popular locals' hangout. Open until 2 p.m., their menu includes a wide variety of breakfast combinations as well as sandwiches and salads. Inside, white walls with light yellow accents and soft watercolor artwork depicting various beach scenes exude an atmosphere of warmth, friendliness and relaxation.
