Neptune Beach Reviews

Neptune Beach is a very family friendly town with no buildings over two stories. It is a very safe neighborhood where most people know their neighbors. There are many dining options from casual to upscale. The beach is beautiful with plenty of fishing available. The views of the sunrises are exceptional with many joggers on the beach at sunrise. The town is very pet friendly with a great dog park available to the public. Our city council members actually listen to what to people of the town want . Our police department is very good and the police do not have an attitude problem. They are really there to serve and to protect our community. We have wonderful parks with trails, volleyball, tennis, pickle ball, pavilions with tables and a great playground for children.
