Why Do People Live Here?
Some people enjoy how Lake Asbury area is a little farther out compared to Fleming Island, I’m one of them. It’s really not so far away from other areas, so you won’t have to drive long distances to get to shopping centers, restaurants, schools and more. It has a small cozy kind of feel to it. Many military folks live in this area. It’s an easy jump to get to Highway 17 to go north to get to NAS JAX. It does not take long to get to St Augustine, maybe about 35-40 mins to get to downtown by taking the scenic route through the back roads of Clay County and St Johns County. See the map below.

If you haven’t filled up on popcorn and nachos, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. La Nopalara, is a popular one, Chilli’s, Steak and Shake, Pita Pit, Bono’s BBQ and that’s just a small sampling of what’s available. For the best BBQ, I highly recommend G’s Slow Smoked BBQ, off of 209, close to 220. If you love to take your boat or jet skis out, then you have about Boat Ramps in Clay County to choose from. Between those 4 boat ramps, you will enjoy views from Black Creek, Doctors Lake and the St Johns River. Right across the street form Russell Oaks subdivision is the Ronnie Van Zant Park.
