Jacksonville Beach vacation rentals

Surf’s up in Jacksonville Beach

Bracing sea air, panoramic views, and access to some of the best surfing spots in Florida are all part of the package when you book Jacksonville Beach vacation rentals. This sun-drenched stretch of Atlantic coastline has been hosting the prestigious pro/am WaveMasters competition since 1983, while each June the resort fills with young hopefuls and their families for the Florida Surfing Association’s joyful Super Grom Surf Fest for under-10s. But there’s more to Jacksonville Beach than world-class water sports—history, culture, cuisine,, and warm Southern hospitality are all part of its year-round appeal.

Jacksonville Beach—tasty tours on your doorstep

Guided tours of the sights provide a great introduction to this friendly community—and one of the most popular visitor attractions is the Budweiser Brewery in downtown Jacksonville, which has been keeping the Southern states supplied with St. Louis’ famous beer since 1969. Self-guided walking tours offer an overview of the company’s fascinating history, while accompanied tours take you behind the scenes for a closer look at the brewing process and its state-of-the-art technology. Whichever option you choose, don’t miss a chance to taste the delicious products and take home some merchandise of this legendary American brand.

The fun never stops in Jacksonville Beach

Jacksonville Beach’s soft sands and warm, gentle waves are the perfect backdrop for fun-filled family outings, with 22 miles of panoramic oceanfront to explore. The quaint village of Mayport is famous for its casino boats and seafood restaurants serving the local specialty, Mayport shrimp. Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park is a favorite spot for picnicking, fishing, and hiking, along with a Splash Park where the little ones can cool off. A lively program of music concerts, open-air movies, art markets, and food festivals keeps the action going from spring to fall, and Jacksonville Beach vacation rentals offer the flexibility and freedom to seize every opportunity.

Jacksonville Beach—a climate for all seasons

Florida’s humid subtropical climate is the main attraction for its thriving year-round vacation industry. Winter or summer, most days are filled with sunshine, while the proximity of the ocean keeps humidity at bay. In the sizzling heat of June through August, Jacksonville Beach vacation rentals with a pool are a bonus. The tropical storm season of September/October is a good time to look for bargains on Jacksonville Beach vacation rentals. The resort’s iconic pier creates excellent conditions for surfing all year round, with the less crowded winter months especially popular among experienced surfers.

Jacksonville Beach’s unique wetlands

A trip to the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve, around 15 miles north of Jacksonville Beach, provides a fascinating glimpse of the region’s unique environmental profile, as well as its rich social heritage. The preserve contains the state’s oldest standing plantation, the remains of a Spanish mission, and excavations dating back to 2500 BC. This vast unspoiled coastal wetland is home to a wide variety of animals, including opossums, armadillos, alligators, turtles, lizards, and many species of amphibians, along with a rich diversity of native and migrating water birds.
