St. Johns, Florida: Getting to Know the Area
One of the most scenic and affordable coastal areas of Florida, St. Johns is west of Interstate 95, and close to history, parks, and beaches. The area is especially known for the St. Johns River, a designated American Heritage River. It flows north through 12 Florida counties and empties into the Atlantic Ocean in Jacksonville. It’s a popular river for fishing, boating, swimming, and birding.
St. Johns is about 40 minutes south of Jacksonville, which means it’s easy for football fans to drive from WaterSong at RiverTown for a Jaguars NFL game. Plenty of shopping is in downtown Jacksonville, and you can take in a show at The Florida Theatre. The historical city of St. Augustine is about half an hour south of St. Johns, providing a lot of opportunities to explore missions, forts, and early churches.
There is also golf. World Golf Village is one of the most sought-after places to play, not just because the course is impeccable and challenging, but also because it hosts the World Golf Hall of Fame. The 2019 inductees are currently being honored. The Golf Club at South Hampton is also a fun place to tee off, and it offers local discounts.
Closest beaches to WaterSong at RiverTown are Anastasia Island State Park with its gentle sand dunes and surfing-friendly waves as well as Vilano Beach, a quiet strip of sand just north of St. Augustine’s historic district. Surfing and skimboarding are popular here, thanks to the strong current provided by the nearby inlet. St. Johns County Ocean Pier features shops, restaurants, and a spectacular view of the ocean.
