The setting of John Grisham's novel, Jacksonville's Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach communities share a lively, beautifully landscaped Town Center full of funky, trendy and casual restaurants, coffeehouses, boutiques, gift shops, galleries and nightspots. Hip and happening yet quaint and homey, Town Center is a pedestrian friendly environment covering several blocks where everyone from yuppies and executives to families and surfers all have favorite hang outs in a picture-perfect, quintessential beach town environment just steps from the sand.
Two oceanfront hotels, the 8-story Sea Turtle Inn and the 2-story Sea Horse Inn anchor the beach side of Town Center. Both hotels are ideal places to plan your vacation around, as all the amenities of Town Center and the beach are easily walkable. Plus, Town Center is a bike ride away from the noteworthy dining, nightlife and special events of Jacksonville Beach and within a 15-30 minute drive of Adventure Landing water park, Mayport Ferry, the Talbot Islands Geoparks, Fort Caroline, shopping malls, movie megaplexes, golf courses, and the museums and attractions of Jacksonville's downtown riverfront.
