Job growth in North Florida and the Jacksonville area is on the rise, and many families are now searching for the best place to buy a home in the surrounding area. For young families, there are a variety of factors to consider when choosing a location to put down roots. New homebuyers should look for the best value for their investment and convenient access to the city center. Families, also need to consider the surrounding area schools, medical facilities, parks, and recreation to support their long-range plans.

In a suburb north of Jacksonville in Nassau County lies the family-oriented Tributary community recently opened by GreenPointe Developers. Tributary has been designed to be a quaint hometown for busy commuters and young families. Surrounded by nature and plenty of fun-filled amenities, this community is also an excellent choice for the young at heart. Check out the top 5 reasons why your family will love living in North Florida.

North Florida’s Highly Rated School District

The Nassau County School District is one of the best school districts in North Florida. With 16 accredited schools, this district has received A-ratings for the past several years. It is no wonder why young families are sending their children to school here. Not only is Tributary located within the Nassau County School District, but the community is also the future site of a brand-new school! The site of the new school will be only steps away for Tributary homeowners. Families will be able to play an active role in their children’s education due to the proximity of its location. This school will serve not just Tributary residents, but also the surrounding area.

The Great Outdoors

Home to beautiful beaches and parks, Nassau County is the perfect place for young families to learn about the lush landscape of North Florida. Between nearby springs, rivers, forests and marshes, children have the chance to experience nature up close and personal. At Tributary, nature trails connect all areas of the community. Families can even launch their own kayaks and canoes at The Landing at Boggy Creek, or just relax by the fire at the riverside park.

Endless Beach Days

For ocean-lovers, North Florida is home to many world-class beaches. Tributary is less than 30 minutes from Seaside Park on Amelia Island. Families enjoy spending the day relaxing on the warm sand and swimming in the crystal blue ocean. Explore the quaint surrounding beach towns of Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. With over 30 beach access points alone on Amelia Island, it has never been easier to soak up the sunshine. The coastal paradise of North Florida makes it an ideal location to raise a family.

Best Place for Family-Friendly Amenities

Nassau County’s newest neighborhood, Tributary, is delivering an abundance of resort-style amenities that are sure to entertain everyone in the family. The highly anticipated amenity center, The Lookout, will include a resort-style pool complete with a children’s splash pad. Tributary’s aquatic amenities are sure to be a popular place for families to congregate on warm sunny days. Featuring large workout spaces and modern equipment, the state-of-the-art Fitness Studio will encourage residents to live a healthy and active lifestyle. Children will let their imagination run wild at the beautifully landscaped Adventure Zone. Not your typical playground, this area is a space designed for young families and children to come together and connect. Joining in on a national craze, Tributary will have a complex with two standard-sized lakeside pickleball courts. This game is great for young families looking for a new and fun activity. Soon to be complete with a fully fenced play area, obstacle course and seemingly endless grass, the Dog Park is a place for pups to play and socialize. Tributary will also be home to a regional park in Nassau County. Tributary Regional Park plans will include baseball and multi-purpose fields, picnic areas, playground, dog park and a trail that connects to the Tributary neighborhood.

North Florida Location

Ideally located, Nassau County boasts proximity to all the best attractions and the favorable tax environment in Florida. The short commute to Jacksonville allows business professionals to work in the city while simultaneously living with their families in a relaxed suburb. Tributary is also in an excellent location for young families looking to explore Florida. This community is less than a three-hour drive from popular attractions and cities. Excursions like Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and the Kennedy Space Center are all family-friendly and can be enjoyed within a couple hours’ drive. Whether families are going to globally revered amusement parks or quaint little beach towns, Tributary is North Florida’s ideal address.

Spanning 1,220 acres, Tributary features beautiful new homes that capture the low-country spirit, complementing the surrounding nature throughout the community. With new homes starting from the $300’s, Dream Finders Homes, Lennar and Richmond American Homes are bringing their unique style and designs that will create special and diverse residences. Tributary is located just 1.6 miles west of I-95 along A1A/SR 200 (the Amelia Island exit) and 15 minutes south of the Jacksonville International Airport and River City Marketplace, a major regional shopping, dining, and entertainment destination.

The Model Home Village with six designer-decorated models is open to tour, so now is the perfect time to stop by for a visit. You can also connect with us on Facebook and Instagram, and be sure to check out our Community’s Digital Brochure, which will give you an overview of the community and what is to come!
