Cambridge, Florida: North

This map shows the area directly north of Cambridge Central. The city expanded northward first along Lake McClellan – just north of the canal built in 1921. Beautiful homes from the 1920s line the streets surrounding Cambridge University, a private college established shortly after the State of Florida opened Southeastern University a mile south.

Sun City and Maricopa were both farming towns, and were later transformed into master-planned golfing communities. Each retained a small central business district – both of which have developed since Cambridge’s growth in the 1970s. Ten-story buildings now line the streets of the two “suburbs,” helping preserve the towns’ flavor as distinct from Cambridge.

FL 7 (left) and I-95 (right) parellel the Schatte River. Each are major commuter arteries: 10-lane freeways with HOV lanes in the middle. I-210 spans the map horizontally – the northern section of the loop, which lies directly on the Cambridge-Nassau county line.

There are too many shopping malls here.
