Hit the beach with your buds on the fourth and party like a true Jacksonville native. Be sure and bring your bike, then head downn First Street to celebrate on two wheels with the community. An annual tradition, hundreds of party-goers ride up and down First Street on the fourth with flags flying and music blaring. This grassroots, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-bike event only happens once a year and should not be missed.
Be sure and grab a Rocket Bomb drink at Ginger’s Place afterward, it’s the only thing that hits the spot after a long ride.
When it gets dark, head to the beach with a towel and catch Jacksonville Beach’s fireworks show over the ocean. Fired off at the pier, it’s a spectacular way to end the day seaside.

Nothing is more American than throwing back a cold one hailing straight out of the homeland. Try Brewz! or Engine 15 for a good spot for sampling beers from across the country while you celebrate Independence Day with your buds. While there are different styles across the states, there is one flavor they have in common – the taste of freedom.
