01 Jun Neptune Beach
Neptune Beach is the youngest and smallest of Jacksonville’s beach communities. Known for its thriving entertainment scene and local eats, Neptune Beach is making a name for itself as a charming, yet cool social center. The citizens today can be found biking and walking about town, hanging out at Pete’s Bar, the local watering hole, and participating in yoga meet-ups.
Neptune Beach came about when the citizens organized a tax revolt against the city of Jacksonville Beach for better services. Since 1989, it has operated under an elected mayor, council, and city management government. Neptune beach has also seen a steady rise in property values and has offered a chance for many do-it-yourselfers to come in and renovate the home of their dreams.
