Hello all, excuse me but i am new to this site and i apologize if this thread has already been answered. I was thinking about relocating to St. Augustine and am wondering about the current job market there. Is there a fair amount of jobs there? I work in the IT industry and pretty much do everything. If not, i know Jax is within about 40 miles and was wondering if that would be too much of a commute? Is there alot of traffic if commuting to Jax everyday? About how long would it take? Thank you

Default Commuting

St. Auggie to Jax is very commutable. I use to live in St. Auggie and I would travel to Jax every weekend. Then I moved to Jax and commuted to Auggie for work. It is a drive, 30 minutes, but it's not that bad and the traffic moves well. Very rarely to you end up with a traffic jam. There are two ways to travel 1) being the most popular I-95 and 2) being US1. US1 you have lights but they are only as you get closer to town, there's a good strech with no lights at all. The speed limit is fairly high in that area as well 65.

As far as the IT jobs in St. Auggie, I'm not one hundered percent sure but I have a feeling they are limited. St. Auggie is a college town and a tourist town there aren't alot of huge businesses there and most of the time college kids run the show. Jax on the other hand has many employment opportunities, however the job market is on a down hill slop due to the economy. Which I'm sure is the same every where in the US. I think the IT market is better off than others.

Sorry to be so lengthy with my response. Hope it helps... good luck with the move.

As far as the commute, it really depends on the exact locations of your Point A and your Point B.

If you decided to live in historic downtown St. Augustine and your job was in downtown Jacksonville, you would have a beast of a commute. If you lived out on Anastasia Island, it would be even worse.

But if you lived in the northernmost part of St. John's county, and not really in St. Augustine proper, then that would be a more bearable, though still lengthy, commute. But then you're also a good distance from the sights of St. Augustine - you're kind of halfway between the 2 cities of St. Aug and Jax.

We just had a similar thread, here's a link to some of the responses there (including my own lengthy response ):
