St. John’s County is where Jacksonville's major suburban explosion is taking place, specifically in northern St. John’s County, with large tracts of land developed as master planned communities such as Julington Creek Plantation, the World Golf Village, and Durbin Crossing. It's a great middle ground for those who want to enjoy both of what Jacksonville and St. Augustine have to offer. For the diehard discount shopper the St. Augustine Premium Outlets is just a few miles south on I-95, with 85 stores representing the best known national retail chains like Saks, Nordstrom, Polo, Nike, and others.
St Johns County is much sought after for its highly-rated schools, including the Palencia Elementary School completed in 2012. In fact, two communities east of I-95 in St. Johns County deserve special mention. Palencia, for those who have a love of golf and community activities, and Nocatee, the new master-planned community, just minutes from Ponte Vedra.
