Beacon Lake – Entertainment Right in Your Backyard!

Beacon Lake knows how much your friends matter to you. That’s why you need the Lake House Amenity & Fitness Center, the hub of camaraderie and companionship. It’s where you can gather for a game of cards, meet with your club, and enjoy culinary demonstrations in our studio demonstration kitchen. Book an event room or event lawn for special parties. It’s all here, waiting for you.


Watch the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp Minor League Baseball team play at Bragan Field or the Jacksonville Jaguars at Everbank Field Stadium. If you’re in the mood for a more relaxed atmosphere, grab your clubs for a few rounds of golf at one of the nearby golf courses.

Movie Theaters and Cinemas

Epic and Cinemark Tinseltown provide high-quality cinematic experiences for movie lovers wanting to see the latest blockbusters. When you live at Beacon Lake, you’re only minutes away from taking in a matinee, evening showing, or weekend date night at the movies!

Performing Arts

Treat your self to the Jacksonville symphony or dance and theatre performances at the Times-Union Center stages.  The Comedy Zone attracts well-known comedians, and the Florida Theatre, where Elvis once performed in his early career, is a national treasure from the days of “Picture Palaces.”


You’ll also experience vibrant nightlife in Jacksonville, which is home to trendy and eclectic bar scenes and dance clubs. Listen to live music at the Elbow Downtown, quaff craft beer at the King Street District, and check out St. John’s Town Center.

Nearby St. Augustine

Head south to St. Augustine to visit St. George Street and explore the Castillo de San Marcos. Founded in 1565, St. Augustine is the oldest city in the continental United States and has played a pivotal part in pirate lore, Spanish rule, and American history. While you’re in St. Augustine, visit the St. Augustine Aquarium or the Alligator Farm Zoological Park.
