I live in San Marco. Pool 5 min away - I think 4 options at least. Bike out my front door in double wide bike lane. Can run lots of great places including the bridges.
Walk to restaurants and kids school. But I like historic over new. Been in Jax since 2008.
Spent lots of time biking and running where youâ€™re looking but no way Iâ€™d live there.
If you want to check out my neck of the woods Iâ€™d be happy to show you around.
My in-laws have a â€śbeachfront â€ś townhome in that beachwalk thing. Havenâ€™t seen it yet. Glad I can go visit. No way Iâ€™d ever live there.
Contrary to comment above, Iâ€™ve heard the prices have been climbing like crazy due to demand. I think my in-laws home is now being sold for ~1.5x what they paid.
You have access to the Nocatee swim club, which is very convenient. There are 8 lanes and itâ€™s open 5a-10p every day but Monday. The youth team practices after school til about 8 but they leave a lane or two open. Any other time you wonâ€™t have to share a lane. There are also 3 lanes in the pool at Twenty Mile Park but that pool isnâ€™t heated and doesnâ€™t have lights.
You can bike and run from your house. There are bike lanes all over Nocatee and traffic isnâ€™t very heavy. Itâ€™s big enough that you can get a long ride in without seeing the same thing over and over. I do a 25 mile route without leaving Nocatee or going the same direction on the same road twice.
There are golf cart paths and sidewalks all over Nocatee. You can get a long run in without having to cross any major intersections and they are all well lit.
Twenty Mile is very close to the Palm Valley Bridge if you need some hills. Depending on where in twenty mile itâ€™s as close as 1-3 miles.
Itâ€™s basically perfect for a triathlete.
And for the original poster, Longleaf/210/13 South of Roberts Rd, 16 and any of the side roads back there are all good riding areas.
Come swim with me at LA fitness. Pool always empty and always open (even when it should be closed for some reason or another!)
