St Johns River, Florida

St. Johns River is the longest river in the state of Florida. At 310 miles (500 km) long, it winds through or borders twelve counties, three of which are the state's largest. Starting in Indian River County and meeting the Atlantic Ocean at Duval County, the St. Johns is Florida's primary commercial and recreational waterway.

The towns and cities along the lower basin of the river are some of the oldest in Florida, and their histories have centered on the river. The final 35 miles (56 km) of the river's course runs through Jacksonville, the largest city by area in the state of Florida, with a population of more than a million.
