The New York Times Quality of Life Study (June 2014) ranked St. Johns County as the highest in Florida.
Out of the 3,135 counties in the United States, St. Johns County came in at the top 4 percent nationwide with its 113th ranking. The study looked at various quality of life indicators, including education, median household income, unemployment rate, life expectancy and obesity.
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.
