Fruit Cove, FL is the beautiful river city by the sea. I love my home because you are constantly surrounded by nature. Your drive to work or school is always met with overhanging trees and the river. You honestly can not live in a more beautiful and picturesque town!
Southern charm, great place to grow up. Neighbors are true neighbors - very willing to help each other out! However, it is fairly conservative and people can be aggressive toward others who don't share their views.
