Atlantic beach is on my top 5 list for great beaches, never overly crowded with many many places to stop for a bite or do a little shopping.

With the hot Summer days of Jacksonville upon us, this is certainly a great place to go to cool off. Nice beach town with some fun breweries and restaurans, plenty of things to do.

Hey Kim, are you going through the Jacksonville airport? If so I would suggest the Cummer Museum, Atlantic Beach or The Jacksonville zoo. Have you considered any of these?

About a half hour to 45 min drive. Jacksonville has water everywhere and the zoo is across water. It is worth the drive though! Beautiful zoo!!
