Summer is here and that means the sweat glands are a’flowing!

The heat in Florida is no joke. While it might make you want to curl up under the air conditioning with Netflix, fight the urge and don’t get sucked in. Summer is the time when Jacksonville Beach is sizzling with fun things to do. You don’t want to miss out, do you?

Staying cool is an art form that has been perfected at the beaches, and we are here to show you how it’s done. So, pull on your swimsuit, slather on sunscreen make sure the screws of the drink holder on your beach cruiser are tightened up: let’s hit the road.

Have a Classic Beach Day

Northeast Florida is chock-full of gorgeous stretches of coastline just begging to be explored. In Jacksonville Beach, the sand and cool Atlantic Ocean are only a quick bike ride away. Pack a cooler with goodies, bring a fold-up chair and round up the crew. You can spend a hot day on the sand under the shade of an umbrella and go for a swim whenever you fancy. Afterwards, there is a string of beach bars and restaurants you can get your kicks at.

Get Sweet at Whit’s Frozen Custard

Nothing makes a hot day all the more sweeter than ice cold creaminess! Whit’s Frozen Custard, located in Atlantic Beach is the hot day stop that hits the sweet spot. A local favorite, choose from different flavors and toppings. Then, pull up a chair and take a load off while you watch beach cruisers roll by.

Waterpark Fun at Adventure Landing

If water slides and wave pools are more your jive, then head to Adventure Landing and Shipwreck Island Waterpark in Jacksonville Beach. The complex of water slides is enough to make any kid or adult-kid lose their mind. Bring the entire family and enjoy hours of fun at the Wave Pool, Pirate’s Play Village and Splash Cove, which is designed for toddlers. There’s a little something for everyone that doesn’t include sandy pants or jellyfish.

Rent a Kayak or Paddle Board on Amelia Island

Get up close and personal with Northeast Florida’s unique wilderness on pristine Amelia Island. Visit Kayak Amelia and they’ll get you set up with the toys you need to explore on the water. Whether you’re looking for a guided tour or just want to rent your own kayak, canoe or paddle board, spend the day checking out salt marshes and rivers along beautiful Simpson Creek.
