Kingsland is a small community surrounded by the beautiful marshes and creeks of the Georgia Coast and we are located just 3 miles North from the state line connecting our slice of southern charm to our neighbors to the south in the sunshine state. We are approximately 45 minutes from downtown Jacksonville, 35 minutes from the beaches of Fernandina, less than 20 minutes from our sister city in St. Mary’s Georgia but wherever you chose to go and whatever you chose to do you can always remember that Kingsland will be home to you and your family at the end of the day with our other 21,000 residents.
