Outdoors

Beautiful and diverse three mile trail you must see if you like being outdoors. Park on 64th outside the park to save on parking, or park inside the gate. One past the entrance gate on the left side There’s a 3 mile trail (1.5 miles one way and then repeat trail to return). Takes you through the woods, by the water, through old cypress marshes, over bridges (you’ll see crabs and fish beneath), and more until you eventually come to a beach called the Narrows. Biking permitted on this trail. There are longer trails to the right, the pretty ones through the waters edge on the right don’t permit bikes but this 3 mile one is easy and my favorite for running, walking, or biking.

Food scene

Just a mile away. Cozy atmosphere, Great food, specials, and prices. Whether you prefer surf, turf, or sandwiches they have it along with great home style sides. This was the original Ice House in the early 1900s as the rail station came from norfolk and stopped just in front of the restaurant. The Norfolk Ave bike path was paved over the old railroad.

Great food with a view! Right on the beach. Valet parking is free I believe plus tip. Often has music on the weekends. Great place to sit on the patio for drinks as well. Know for their fresh Orange Crushes as the squeeze the orange fresh for each drink.

Sports Bar. Fun atmosphere with cornhole, great for food or just drinks. Nice outdoor patio though a block off the beach. Limited parking available or can park at a garage or meters. I’d ride bikes or call an Uber.

Great atmosphere on the water of Ruddee Inlet with outdoor swinging tables. They serve breakfast lunch and dinner but I think it’s best for brunch or evening drinks as their dinner menu isn’t my favorite.

40th-70th streets.. right off Resort beach.. more private..no showers or bath houses though. Free parking. there's a feeder road you can find parking on at the north end but have to cross the main Atlantic Ave to get to beach. Certain streets do have parking on the beach side but hard to come by on holiday weekend.

Resort beach and boardwalk is 1st street through 40th. Parking garages are probably best during busy times.. there's one right on 9th street that's closest to here.. also garages on 25th and 31st street.. and municipal paid parking lots on 4th and 19th) unless you can find an open meter parking space those are $2/hour good for up to 3 hours. “Residential” parking can be found several blocks off the beach for free but pay attention to hours available as most will ticket or tow after 5 or 8pm. Getting towed is expensive $145 so be wise and pay attention to signs!
