Fruit Cove is one of the top “hottest suburbs in the U.S.” according to a list by Coldwell Banker Real Estate. The real estate firm rated 1,500 communities around the country using criteria including employment, access to suburban staples (grocery stores, banks, etc.), proximity to good schools, commuting by car and community safety.
The result: Fruit Cove, at the northwest corner of St. Johns County and just across Julington Creek from Jacksonville, came in at No. 3. The report described it this way: The charming suburb of Fruit Cove is home to some of the most unique small companies, corporate businesses and specialty shops. As an unincorporated suburb, it is home to diverse industries of finance and insurance, healthcare, educational services, professional, scientific and technical services and construction, and keeps to its roots of retaining a small town feel.”
