Review Atlantic Beach
Atlantic Beach: A Little Gem By The Sea
Atlantic Beach maintains its own municipalities but is a part of the City of Jacksonville. As of the 2010 census, Atlantic Beach had a population of approximately 13,000 residents and a median income of 48,000. Most employment in Atlantic Beach is for the service industry but is within a small drive to the thriving Downtown Jacksonville area where employment is bountiful.
The Continental Hotel was one of the first hotels in Atlantic Beach and had 250 guest rooms, dance pavilion, fishing pier, and tennis courts which made Atlantic Beach a great vacation destination. It was Henry Flagler's forethought that turned Atlantic Beach into what it is today. Atlantic Beach with its miles of pristine beach and a plethora of dining, shopping, and drinking establishments make Atlantic Beach a popular destination stop still today.
Within a hop, skip, and a jump to downtown Jacksonville you can visit Everbank Field, home of our beloved Jacksonville Jaguars, museums and an abundance of shopping. The only drawback to Atlantic Beach is parking is at a premium, especially if there is an event for the city. Once you live in Atlantic Beach you won't want to live anywhere else.
