Northeast Florida is called the “First Coast” because it is the site of the United States' oldest permanent European settlement, St. Augustine. Today the name “First Coast” is more appropriate than ever, because many people who have the chance to move anywhere in Florida choose Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and the Beaches area FIRST!
Jacksonville is Florida's largest city, and an important economic center for the Eastern Seaboard. The city is home to the largest deep water port in the south, and serves as corporate headquarters for a number of large companies, including TNT Logistics, Dandee Foods, and Winn-Dixie. Steady economic growth in recent years has made this one of the hottest real estate markets in the south, and produced a wide variety of new residential communities.
