florida mapNortheast Florida is a unique part of the Sunshine State, home to St. Augustine, the oldest city in the U.S., as well as the largest city in square miles – Jacksonville. Boasting beautiful beaches, a warm climate, and a vibrant downtown with professional sports, a symphony, and fine dining, Jacksonville grows along the banks of the north-flowing St. Johns River.

Beyond Jacksonville are many smaller communities that offer the very best of Florida living. Outdoor activities such as boating, water skiing, hiking, bicycling and fishing are plentiful in Northeast Florida. From the beautiful beaches of Amelia Island to the historic downtown shops of St. Augustine, the area offers a wealth of fascinating and enriching activities. Take a trip to the Alligator Farm in St. Augustine, enjoy freshly-caught shrimp in Mayport, stroll through picturesque downtown Green Cove Springs, or take a cruise along the St. Johns River, or walk along the shore at Jacksonville Beach – Northeast Florida has it all.

Northeast Florida also is home to many top-rated healthcare facilities including Mayo Clinic, Nemours Children’s Hospital and the University of Florida Health system. Additionally, local hospitals such as Baptist, St. Vincent’s and Orange Park medical centers are highly regarded for quality care.
