It's amazing that people complain there is nothing to do in SJC. People from Jacksonville and the surrounding counties flock to ST Augustine. Great Concerts, food, shopping, museums, landmarks, restaurants and yes, they are very diverse in the best of ways!! It is also amazing that people complain about having to drive 10 to 30 minutes to get to restaurants and such. Wow! Maybe they should move downtown. It is true that too much development is going on. Growth is growing in leaps and bounds and they are profiting from building lots of high end housing. Like Don Henly said: "Call somewhere paradise and kiss it good-bye!"

My family just moved to Saint Johns Florida about two weeks ago and we already love it. The area is beautiful we had a house built in a brand new development. The neighbors are friendly, the workers that are still putting up new houses left and ride are friendly, and the weather is absolutely great! If you're in search of a job there are opportunities at every corner.
I've been living in St. Johns County for about five years now, and I have moved a lot before settling here. This county has been my favorite place to love so far. I love it here! I t has great schools, very safe area, and lots of diversity!
