Sitting along the St. John's River, the city of Middleburg once found prosperity solely because of this location. The city would act as a hub of sorts for inbound and outbound goods and people. For those folks further inland, a visit to the city meant resupplying for essential items. Even more, the city found economic growth due to the influx of shipped goods, such as timber and textiles. Today, the area serves primarily as a residential area, with most members of the area commuting to work in nearby towns. However, the city will forever be known as one of the original shipping hubs in Florida.
A Path to Entertainme
While the city of Middleburg is not a booming hot spot, you can easily find the road to fun. Just up Blanding sits multiple bars and grills for a girl's or guy's night out. The younger crowd can take part in arts lessons at Wehner's School of the Arts, which is right in downtown Middleburg. For those people looking to enjoy the warm weather and waters of Florida, St. John's River provides access to watersports fun while slightly less than an hour’s drive lands residents at the Atlantic Coast for sunbathing, volleyball, festivals, and swimming in the ocean. There is nothing quite like it.
