Beachside Shopping in Jacksonville

What could be better than shopping with a fresh ocean breeze?

Beaches Town Center
Shop, dine, or simply relax in the palm-tree lined courtyard setting of Beaches Town Center. This pedestrian-friendly network of stores is located just two blocks from the ocean, where Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach meet. Browse art galleries, clothing boutiques, unique souvenir shops, jewelry stores, and more.

With regular events including live music and Art Walks, Beaches Town Center is a popular nighttime destination for locals and visitors. Don’t miss Peterbrooke Chocolatier, a local favorite since 1983. Be sure to try their signature item: chocolate-covered popcorn! 

Beachside Shopping on A1A
The A1A strip, running throughout Neptune, Atlantic, and Jacksonville Beach, is a shopper's paradise, with a variety of galleries, shops, and restaurants, all within a neighborhood setting. Sample the area’s fine arts at J. Johnson Gallery, located just one block away from the beach and ocean pier. Feed your intellect at Jacksonville’s best independent bookstore, BookMark, in Neptune Beach. 

Stop into Cottage by the Sea for treasures from the beach. Visit one of the area's many clothing and accessory boutiques, including the locally owned and operated Rosie True, which carries beachy women’s fashions.

    Hello Anglers! Summer has been here for quit a while in N.E. Florida. Most of you don't really care what month the calendar says. As a fisherman, I call it summer when the Spanish Mackerel show up at the inlet. And that happened back in May!
