Spanning across 1,550 acres of land and adjacent to state-protected parks, Tributary is filled with natural waterways and majestic evergreen forests to explore. With a commitment to connecting people to the outdoors, this master-planned community has partnered with renowned Avid Trails to immerse residents in the area’s natural beauty. These trails will encourage physical fitness, a healthy lifestyle, and outdoor living at its finest. Check out all that the new Tributary trail system will have to offer.

Avid Trails

Avid Trails is a trail design company with extensive experience and knowledge in creating hiking, biking, and fitness trails. Founded in 2014, Avid Trails has developed sustainable nature trails across the country, and recently coordinated with GreenPointe Developers for a nature trail system at TrailMark, located in St. Augustine, FL. This community will feature approximately 23 miles of trails at build-out. The current 10+ mile network is designed to appeal to a wide variety of users, from casual walkers to competitive runners and cyclists. Some trails feature obstacles for climbing while others are punctuated by technical features for mountain bikers.

At Tributary, the trails will wind throughout the community and provide direct access points to the Nassau River and neighboring trailheads of the Four Creeks State Forest. These connections will allow residents to discover all their natural neighbors provide, including kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, and more. The trail system will also connect Tributary neighborhoods to the Tributary Regional Park that is now under construction. Here, residents will soon enjoy baseball and multi-purpose fields, picnic areas, a playground, a dog park, and canoe and kayak launch points.

Enhanced Outdoor Living

By applying best planning practices, these future trails will be intertwined throughout the community connecting playgrounds, parks, kayak parks and a variety of amenities designed to encourage discovery and enjoyment of the beautiful scenery in and around the community.

Nature is known to enhance people’s lifestyles, as it is beneficial to both physical and mental health. Studies have shown that the average American spends around 10 hours of the day looking at a screen. Exposure to nature has been linked to benefits including, improved attention, lower stress, and an overall better mood. This trail system is an amazing way for residents to unplug, unwind, and live a more relaxed lifestyle by taking the time to indulge in nature.

Between the favorable tax climate, endless activities, and breathtaking natural beauty, it’s no wonder why people are choosing to move to North Florida. According to Florida’s Office of Economic and Demographic Research, an estimated 329,717 new residents settled in Florida between April 2020 and April 2021. Nassau County alone saw the fourth highest percent change in the state with a 4.9% increase in county population. Find out why people never want to leave the Sunshine State.

1. Financial Benefits

Florida is one of only seven states in the US that doesn’t collect an individual income tax. It’s having a direct impact in attracting residents from highly taxed states. Moving from a state like New York or Massachusetts can result in saving thousands of dollars in taxes every year, and that’s just the beginning. The Florida Constitution prevents counties and municipalities from imposing any sort of income tax at local levels too. So you’ll never have to worry about that changing anytime in the future. Florida’s lack of a state estate tax is another contributing factor to why so many are choosing to make the move.

2. Explore Nature

With sunshine and warm weather most of the year, people in Florida love to go out and engage with the natural world around them. Florida is home to 175 state parks open 365 days a year, each offering its own set of adventures, history, and wilderness to explore. North Florida’s most popular parks include Four Creeks State Forest, Fort Clinch State Park, and the Talbot Island Parks. Beach lovers will also enjoy traversing the 13 miles of sandy seashores along Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. Residents of Tributary, the area’s newest master-planned community, are benefitting from their close proximity to Four Creeks State Forest, creating a natural neighbor full of birdwatching, hiking, fishing, and more to enjoy. The new Tributary Regional Park is also under construction, with multi-purpose sports fields, a kayak launch, playgrounds and trails for residents to explore within their neighborhood.

3. The Growing Job Market

One of the biggest drivers of North Florida’s growth is the expanding job market. Since August 2020, Florida has added 377,700 different employment opportunities in various industries. Many financial institutions and tech companies have created new headquarters in the State, creating high-paying jobs for new workers and current residents alike. Additionally, Nassau County has a rapidly expanding medical industry. The county will soon be a site to both a Baptist Health and Memorial hospital and wellness facilities. Senior residents of North Florida also have the newly constructed River City Rehabilitation Center for short-term or long-term care. As Nassau County continues to grow, the area consistently outpaces the rest of the state in terms of economic growth and an unemployment rate lower than the national average.
