Details of Jacksonville Beach and the Ticket Luck value
White sandy beaches as far as the eyes can see, hot subtropical climate, lots of conchs and suntan lotion- all this and much, much more is what Jacksonville Beach has to offer. Informally known as Jax Beach, there is a thing for each member of the family. For the grand parents, the beach offers the perfect sunrise and sunset vintage points; couples could go for a long private walk along St. John's River, the Atlantic Ocean or the Intracoastal Waterway(the choice is yours); and there are abundant opportunities for the kids to revel in the adrenaline of water sports. Fishing, boating, surfing- it's yours for the taking. A family picnic is not even a bad idea- it all depends on how best you utilize your surroundings to absorb the ambience of the neighborhood.
It is also the perfect vintage point to observe the porpoise and the right-whales that line the coast at the Sea Walk. The Sea Walk is abuzz with activity almost all around the year (April through October). There are numerous concerts and festivals organized all year round. So nightlife is high and the place will definitely not bore you. Jacksonville Beach is also primly located. It is only a short distance away from the Kennedy Space Centre, Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Orlando. Although the first claim to the land was laid by the French, the area known as Jacksonville Beach was settled by the Spanish and was later ceded to the British via a treaty. Control once again was vested in the hands of the Spanish before it was ceded to the United States of America in 1821. The area was occupied as far back as 1837 however proper settlements began much later only after Mayport was accorded the status of a port. It was only the after the establishment of Ruby Beach in 1883 that the area was renamed Pablo Beach; after a short span of three years; and incorporated into a town in 1907. Later it became the modern day Jacksonville Beach in 1925. Today, the Jacksonville Beach is the largest in a collection of towns known as the Jacksonville Beaches.
