Where We Buy Homes in Jacksonville: Neighborhood Highlight (Part IV)
June 22nd, 2023
Although many professional home buying companies are only interested in buying properties in one or two regions, our team at Evergreen Home Buyers purchase homes all across the Jacksonville area. But what are these areas? And what are their best features? Well, that’s why our experts have compiled a list of where we buy homes in Jacksonville, including a neighborhood highlight of each community so you can make an informed decision for your next real estate transaction.
The Beaches & Mayport
Mere minutes from downtown Jacksonville lies nearly 22 miles of white sandy beaches, 40 miles of the Intracoastal Waterway, 50 public boat ramps, and the longest stretch of the St. John’s River in all of Florida! Become entranced by the majestic sunrises and star-filled nights or spend the day relaxing by the ocean – but don’t forget your sunscreen! Once you’re done soaking in the sun, head to the nearby shops, restaurants, and attractions to fill up on some food or unwind. Three of the most popular beaches in this area include Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach, and Atlantic Beach, which we will take a closer look at next.
Jacksonville Beach has had many different eras. First created as a resort destination in 1886, it later featured a boardwalk with dance pavilions in the early 1910s before boasting a beach-side rollercoaster from 1928 until it was torn down in 1950. Today, it’s still a fantastic place to take the family to enjoy some fun in the sun as well as other outdoor activities. Take a morning stroll around the beach, explore Jacksonville Beach Pier, or hop on a beach cruiser for a leisurely bike ride along First Street. Discover this welcoming oceanfront community with a laidback vibe on your next trip to Jacksonville.
Nestled between Atlantic Beach and Jacksonville Beach lies Neptune Beach, an area rich in history and local charm. Originally named ‘Neptune’ in 1885, the area didn’t experience growth until the 1930s, when Jacksonville residents began purchasing summer cottages there. Since then, it’s grown into the beach community you see today, boasting the area’s oldest bar, the Beaches Town Center, and tons of shopping and dining experiences. Known for its local flair, it’s the perfect place to do some yoga on the beach or go for a surf before grabbing a cold beer and enjoying the ocean breeze!
Like the Jacksonville and Neptune Beaches, Atlantic Beach first became popular as an esteemed vacation destination in the early 1900s when Henry M. Flagler built the Continental Hotel. Featuring 250 guest rooms, large parlors, and a dining room with amenities including a 9-hole golf course, dance pavilion, tennis courts, fishing pier, and riding stable, vacationers flocked to Atlantic Beach for close to 20 years until the resort burned down in 1919. Nowadays, visitors can choose from many upscale accommodations, such as One Ocean Resort, Hotel Palms, or the Salt Air Inn & Suites. Beyond this, it also has Hanna Park, which allows nature enthusiasts to explore the ocean, trails, and waterways of Northeast Florida.
