The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute (March 2019) ranked St. Johns County as the highest in Florida.
The study was conducted by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and shows, according to the report, that “where you live influences how well and how long you live.” All 50 states are part of the report.
The No. 1 ranking is no surprise for growing families as the area is known for its A+ schools. Since 2010, St. Johns County has been the highest ranked school system in the state. The First Coast’s low cost of living, job opportunities, warm weather, better-than-average quality of life, proximity to the beach and retirement are all notable reasons that families relocate from colder, Northern cities.
Over 85 percent of the Nocatee is located in St. Johns County. Current Nocatee community members, like the Millers, are happy to share why their family decided to move to the area. To see the full news-report and an interview with one Nocatee family by ActionNewsJax, click here.
