Beach in December + NFL Tickets

I have been looking at some of the average temps for Jacksonville Beach in Dec, but was wondering whether people use the beaches or are they deserted because the air temperature too cold?

How easy is it to get hold of tickets to watch the Jaguars when they are playing B rated teams?

Help on either of these points would be really appreciated!

Thanks, Paul

There will be people on the beach. Probably not to many sun bathers, but you will see people walking the beach, surfers in the water, etc.

Tickets for Jags games are easy to get. Rarely do they sell out.

The ocean temperature is around 59 or 60 degrees in December. (Warmer than the North Sea maybe.) Too cold for Floridians, but I had a couple guests from Germany who went out into the ocean on January 1st and stayed out up to their necks in water for almost an hour and maintained it was just wonderful.

Y'all come on over for a visit!

The weather can do odd things. Nor'easter storms are sometimes born in Jacksonville, and the county is occasionally under its very own, very British pall of cloud and fog.

In some of the older, nicer residential neighborhoods, there's an annual game to see whether big old poinsettias will make it until Christmas without being frozen (they almost always freeze to the ground sometime during the winter)

Apart from that, you should expect dry, sunny weather.


The Jaguars would love to have you. Their attendance has been doing poorly, so there is talk of their moving to a larger city.
