Top Reasons for Moving to St. Augustine

If you’ve been considering a move to one of the homes in St. Augustine FL, don’t miss the latest exclusive neighborhood where we’re building our custom coastal homes. Yachtsman’s Point is a waterfront neighborhood and the final phase of the Pelican Reef community, featuring a neighborhood marina for residents and the potential to even purchase your own boat slip. Yachtsman’s Point is one of the only new construction neighborhoods on Anastasia Island, offering easy access to shopping, dining, entertainment, great schools and much more.

There are plenty of reasons to move to Yachtsman’s Point, but there are plenty of reasons to move to St. Augustine, as well. This beautiful, historic city is a wonderful place to call home. St. Augustine is the oldest continually inhabited city in the U.S., so it’s no surprise it’s rich in history, and the historic downtown area is a great place to visit, even as a resident. Some of the most famous sites include the Castillo de San Marcos fort, and the oldest schoolhouse in the country. In fact, schools remain important here, with St. Johns County being among the top school districts in Florida. There are even 20 Career Academies covering a range of occupational options to help students focus on specific career themes if they choose.

Yachtsman’s Point offers water access, but access to Florida’s beautiful white, sandy beaches is always a draw. Fortunately, in St. Augustine, there are 42 miles of beaches in the area, with some that are great for surfing, and others ideal for families. There’s a beach for everyone!

Those with a love of the arts will be happy, no matter your personal preferences. Music lovers can enjoy everything from local singers and songwriters to massive big-name concerts, and practically everything in between. Those who enjoy the visual arts will find a rich history and ongoing growth. Once the home of the largest art colony in the south, there is now the St. Augustine Arts Association that showcases national and international artists. You can also get out and enjoy the First Friday Art Walk.

There’s certainly no shortage of outdoor entertainment and activities. No matter your interest, you can enjoy hiking, biking, horseback riding, kayaking, swimming, water skiing, sailing, fishing, camping, and much more. There are also plenty of playgrounds, parks of all sizes, dog parks, skate parks, recreation centers, and certainly no shortage of golf courses.

Plus, while you’ll find plenty to do and enjoy right in St. Augustine, you’re also close to Jacksonville, Daytona and Orlando. From two hours to Orlando to less than an hour to Jacksonville, you can enjoy even more of the state’s many offerings.

St. Augustine manages to combine small-town charm with big city offerings. It’s a friendly place to live and it’s easy to fall in love with this unique city.
