Did you know that St Johns County residents get free admission during the month of September? Places like the Old Town Trolley, Old Jail and Lightner Museum are just some places that treat the locals. I like to think of this as a "thank you" after the Labor Day holiday for being such gracious hosts to all the many tourists that visit this fine city year after year.
I love the hometown feel of St. Augustine and we even recently celebrated the 450th anniversary of the founding fathers landing on the banks St Augustine all those years ago. The week long celebration included a party in the streets that brought in big name acts like EmmyLou Harris, Aaron Neville and even JJ Grey and Mofro. The King of Spain also made an appearance after the cake cutting ceremony.
Just down the the road is another up and coming area which we refer to as World Golf Village. This area is currently booming right now with many new restaurants having opened in the last few months and just last week an Auto Zone planted some roots. Residents will no longer have to drive 20 plus miles just for replacement wiper blades. We all know how worn out they get with all this rain this time of year.
Lastly, if you are looking to move to St Johns county, you definitely have many options to chose from. Let Suncoast Property Management help you find your new home. There is even a newly created beach entry lagoon style pool that's in it's final stages of development that will surely be hit with children and adults alike.
All of this development rides on the coattails of the huge retail giant at the border of the Duval and St Johns county line. The much anticipated Bass Pro Shop will be here before we know it. This economic development is sure to entice many more residents to move into these area and we welcome them with open arms.
