Ponte Vedra

Ponte Vedra Beach is an area of Florida that visitors will not want to miss. This small, yet well-recognized community is filled with history and adventure. Dating back to the Spanish settlers and Ponce de Leon in the 1500's, Ponte Vedra Beach withstood many raids and wars for several hundred years causing its growth to be slow.
 
Eventually, roads and a golf course were built, but it was not until the 1950's that Ponte Vedra Beach resumed its evolution and became a golf community with the development of the Robert Trent Jones golf course and later the development of the now famous Sawgrass course. Today Ponte Vedra is home to THE PLAYERS Championship golf tournament, world headquarters for the PGA Tour and the Association of Tennis Professionals. And, it was voted Money Magazine's "Best Place to Live in Florida" award!
 
With 42 miles of pristine Atlantic beaches, visitors can enjoy the surf and relax in the sunshine year round. And water enthusiasts can enjoy activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, windsurfing, kiteboarding, or fishing to name a few. Or if you are in search of culture, you can discover historic sites, museums that display important artifacts and art collections.
