Jacksonville Celebrates the 4th of July
Celebrate 4th of July the Timoti’s Way
Florida's summer heat is here, and with that the fun and festive 4th of July week. For many people in America this means grilling out, dining out and a cold beer or two accompanied by fireworks. Spending quality time with family or friends is important, which is why we are open at our Nocatee and Fernandina locations throughout the 4th to serve you authentic, wild-caught, family-friendly seafood. Cool down with a Timotis ice cold cocktails on draft at Nocatee before heading to see fireworks, or hop into our original location as you meander the historic downtown streets in Fernandina Beach.
However you like to do it, we have a few ideas at hand to check out a few top favorite 4th activities in the greater Jacksonville area this year.
1. Fernandina Beach Fireworks Cruise
Fernandina Beach is hosting a variety of fireworks cruises for adults and families. Adults can attend the Twilight Fireworks BYOB Cruise, or bring the kids along for the Family Friendly Fireworks Sunset Cruise.
