Happy Birthday Neptune Beach!

Posted by Tara Eglin on

On this day, 97 years ago, Neptune Beach opened it's gates to the public.

Coined the “Coney Island of the West Coast", you could enter Neptune Beach Park for a mere 10¢ and take a dip in the largest open air swimming tank in the world, sample the first “sno-cones” and dare a roller coaster ride on the Whoopee! Patrons attended gypsy balls, séances, boxing matches, swimming competitions, and watched hair raising aerial stunts of dare-devils on high wires. The 87 acre resort included a long sandy beach that was home to bathers, jolly picnickers and merry makers.

How fun would it be to spend a day at Neptune Beach?!
