If you have never been to the Northeastern part of Florida, I highly recommend it for your next family vacation destination! Tucked away in St. John’s county, is a beautiful town called, Ponte Vedra Beach. It is conveniently located just 18 miles southeast of downtown Jacksonville and 26 miles north of St. Augustine. Just a short 30 minute drive from the JAX airport. Beautiful beaches and gorgeous Florida weather is what you’ll find here.
We had the opportunity to visit the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa, along “Florida’s Historic Coast” and it did not disappoint, in fact it succeeded our expectations leaps about bounds.
