These days, there are smaller Ron Jon shops in multiple locations, but this is THE Surf Shop of the Florida Coast. The 52,000 square foot flagship store boasts massive collections of surfboards for sale; as well as all kinds of surf and swim gear, skateboards and skate gear, swimsuits, sunglasses, clothing, bikes, towels, and so much more.
They have a really cool section of shells, starfish, and other ocean finds. I suppose that one little section helps keep this stop "educational" in nature! Otherwise, Ron Jon is best experienced as a bright, fun, spirited stop.
And, most importantly, THEY DO HAVE PUBLIC BATHROOMS.
They are upstairs in the very back corner of the store, so you literally have to walk by every product on the sales floor to get to them, so it's certainly not a quick in and out pit stop, but it ranks up on the fun scale for memorable pit stops.
It is a two story store, but elevators are available if needed.
