Food Scene

The best bakery for donuts and sweets I've been to probably ever. Even though they don't really say it, everything they make is 100% vegan.

My favorite Indian buffet. It goes from 11AM to 2PM. If you like Indian food, I can just about guarantee that you won't be disappointed.

This is the real thing. They serve local fish and shrimp that's in season, and allegedly the building is made from the wood of old shrimp boats. It's a very laid back T-shirt and shorts place, and cheaper than most seafood joints. You can sit on the deck outside and watch the fishing boats and large ships pass by.

Not quite as good as Singleton's, but way closer. Super laid back and authentic, and really nice people.

Parks & Nature

This is the best beach if you want to attempt to avoid crowds. On the right day you may share the entire with 2 or 3 people or no one. The massive natural sand dunes are impressive and it's prime for finding shark's teeth. There are 3 place to park along A1A south of Ponte Vedra.

If you want to surf, try around 35th St. South. If you want mellow waves and fewer surfers than at the pier, it's a good spot. They have on the street parking along 1st. St. The earlier the better, and of course it's less crowded on the weekdays and rainy days. Take I-95S to J. Turner Butler Blvd. (202) to get out there. It's way faster than Atlantic Blvd.

Entertainment & Activities

Sunray is an independent movie theater, and one of the gems of the city. They show some blockbusters as well as obscure films. Check their calendar for free shows, live events, lectures and other special things. They have a pretty incredible menu (vegan options) and they serve beer.
