Farmland, small communites, and the St. Johns County Fairgrounds.

This region extends from I-95 to the St. Johns River and most visitors travel to Elkton to enjoy the river or to attend a fair or another event at the St. Johns County Fairgrounds.

The majority of this area contains commercial vegetable farms, horse farms, and farm equipment companies. This is one of the two market baskets of St. Johns County and produce grown here can be found at the farm markets and best restaurants in St. Augustine. There are also event venues, trails for walking and biking, horse-back riding trails, and the larger and northern tract of the Deep Creek Conservation Area, a natural environment for hiking toward the St. Johns River.

The St. Johns County Fairgrounds is located 13 miles and 21 minutes from the Plaza de la Constitución in St. Augustine.
