Contemplating moving from Calif to Ponte Vedra

Hi scribsnook,

Ponte Vedra is a wonderful place to live...it just depends on what you are looking for. I am familiar with San Diego, Santa Monica, and L.A., my brother lived out there for years and I visited often. The weather is definitely different than Cali, lots more humidity. As for shopping, the main difference is you are not going to find little village type areas for shopping and dining that you walk from home to - those are in the older Jacksonville neighborhoods. We have many upscale boutiques up and down the main drag thru the beaches, but for heavy duty shopping, most people go out to St. John's Town Center in Jacksonville - a 20-30 minute drive depending on what part of PVB you live in. It's a pedestrian outdoor mall. There are some great restaurants in Ponte Vedra as well - everything from fine dining, to upscale chains, and in between. The main "hub" of town seems to be the beach clubs, mainly Ponte Vedra Inn and Club. I would suggest you check out this forum for more info

It should provide you with more to go on than I can here, you can post your own question and get tons of feedback. Best of luck to you, transplants are always welcome!
