People & Lifestyle

Things to Do

Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park sits along Atlantic Beach’s northern border with the historic town of Mayport. Hanna Park rolls right down to the white sand beachfront. The park’s centerpiece is a 60-acre lake that is open for kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and paddleboating. With 20 miles of hiking and biking trails, the park also has around 300 campsites and a waterfront event space at Dolphin Pavilion. At the northern end of Hanna Park’s 1.5-mile beachfront, The Poles is the best surf spot in Northern Florida for experienced surfers. Howell Park is another captivating natural space with a 0.75-mile nature trail winding through a gorgeous landscape of ponds, streams, and forest. The St. Johns River Ferry provides unforgettable tours from Atlantic Beach to the barrier islands just off Florida’s Atlantic coast. Atlantic Beach’s proximity to Jacksonville makes it easy to visit attractions such as the Cummer Museum of Art and Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens. Atlantic Beach is also close to sprawling natural areas such as Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve. In January, the Stuart Boat Show features more than 175 exhibitors. This large annual event has been named one of the top 20 events in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society.
