When you need a break from the sunshine, grab your Jax Ale Trail passport and stop in for a craft beer at Southern Swells Brewing Company and Engine 15 Brewing Company. Just a few blocks from the beach, you can also find Green Room Brewing, home to permanent and rotating taps with new beers every Thursday. Bring along your four-legged friends too, as Green Room is dog-friendly. Located in a former magazine publishing warehouse, Ink Factory Brewing prides itself for being a craft brewery, taproom and espresso bar. The brewery hosts regular events like morning yoga, live music, pop-up shops, comedy shows and food trucks.
Owned and operated by the city of Jacksonville Beach, golfers can test their skills at the Jacksonville Beach Golf Course, open since 1960. With an expanded driving range, the course was completely renovated in 2018 and redesigned by acclaimed golf course architect, Harrison Minchew.
For a bit of history, the Beaches Museum tells the story of the area with permanent and rotating exhibits and local artwork. The outdoors history park features the 1903 Pablo Beach post office and the Mayport East Coast Railway Depot that was once the end point for the Florida East Coast Railway. A 1911 train engine in the park is similar to the trains that once traveled as part of the East Coast Railway. The Beaches Museum Chapel is popular for events and small weddings. The museum is also home to one of Visit Jacksonville’s Visitor Centers. Stop by to discover even more ways to enjoy Jacksonville Beach and soak in the fun of beach life.
