No Netflix? Here’s Why

Have you tried streaming anything from Netflix tonight? Or even tried to simply check your email? If you live in Ponte Vedra Beach, and are a customer of Comcast, don’t expect to be able to do either of those things into this work week. Comcast, which brands its communications services as XFinity, announced that they […]

It’s Wintertime at the Beaches!

Finally, a local beaches establishment has grabbed the idea of creating a winter wonderland, complete with outdoor ice skating, and ran with it. I have personally been hoping that this would happen here at the beach for several years.  I thought that the area in front of the SeaWalk Pavilion would make a great place […]

Thanksgiving at Pete’s Bar: 2011 Edition

First Street in front of Pete’s has been swept clean, and now all the shops at the beaches are in full-on holiday mode. Thanksgiving 2011 is history, but memories of the cocktail party at Pete’s Bar in Neptune Beach will carry us through until next year.     These guys skated over for some libations […]

Giving Thanks for Pete’s

Thanksgiving at the beach would not be complete without dropping in at Pete’s Bar in Neptune Beach.  Despite the many years of these Thanksgiving ‘pre-family dinner gathering-for-cocktails‘ get togethers, many beaches residents (or townies) have yet to experience a Thanksgiving at Pete’s.  If you haven’t, you should.  It’s tradition, y’all.   This tradition has morphed over the […]

The First Coast Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation is organizing a beach cleanup this weekend.  They are meeting at 16th Avenue South in Jax Beach beginning at 9:00am.   According to their Facebook Page, the beach is sorely in need of some helping hands to clean up debris from recents storms and such.  They’ll provide […]

Love at First Bite: A Sneak Peak at M Shack in Atlantic Beach

We’ve been eagerly watching the build-out of the space formerly occupied by The BookMark in Atlantic Beach,  as it’s transformed into the new, laid back restaurant  M Shack. M Shack will bring an upscale, and affordable menu featuring burgers, fries, hotdogs, shakes…casual food served quickly; but quality fare, as it’s coming from the Medure family of […]

Atlantic Beach’s Acoustic Night…

….may be over for the 2011 season, but we’ll be featuring some acoustic performances from The Beaches Online musical archives from time to time, to tide us over until next Spring when it begins again. Here’s a performance by Danny Dornan. A lovely performance; the videographer ought to have stood still rather than roaming the […]

Mandalay Park was renamed over the weekend, following a sign unveiling ceremony at the park nestled between Seminole Road and Ocean Blvd. The park was re-designated as Waters Park, to honor the memory of former Atlantic Beach commissioner Dezmond Waters, who died earlier this year. Void of a sign previously, the City of Atlantic Beach […]

Tideviews Preserve “officially” opened this weekend following a ribbon-cutting ceremony early Saturday morning.

As we first reported to you, the parking lot was full for the opening morning.

However, our return trip to view the sunset provided us an empty boardwalk for us to capture the magnificent setting sun.

Paragliding over Jax Beach

It was a gorgeous fall afternoon at the beach. We stopped in at Jax Beach pier, to just spend a few minutes soaking in the sunshine and the weekend ambiance. This weather is great for so many things.  There are still those who’re willing to swim – even skinning it in the ocean whose temps […]
