five kids laying in the grass at Tributary in the summertime

Finding ways to keep kids entertained in the summer can be challenging, but Tributary residents have a variety of family-friendly activities waiting for them right in their backyard. Located in Nassau County, this new community is the perfect place for families to settle down and create lifelong memories. Being only a short drive from Jacksonville means you’ll also have access to some of the most popular summer spots. Water parks, summer camps and natural Florida adventures are all waiting to be uncovered! Here is our list of the best activities for kids this summer.

Explore Nature

Located just west along SR 200 from Tributary is Four Creeks State Forest. For a serene afternoon, bring your canoe and fishing pole and see what you can catch as you float along the creek. Those looking to burn some energy can bike, walk or run along the forest’s many trails. While your there, be sure to keep an eye out for white-tailed deer, wild turkey, gopher tortoise and the numerous songbirds that inhabit the forest.

If you want an educational experience that is perfect for any age group, explore the over 12,000 acres of wild at White Oak Conservation in North Yulee. White Oak hosts an array of inspiring informational programs and presentations on Florida’s ecosystem, wildlife conservation and species refuge. Kids (and adults) can stimulate their interests through live demonstrations and events, close-up wild animal viewings, or even a sunset safari experience.

Looking to stay in the neighborhood? Tributary will soon have you covered with a comprehensive trail system and a direct river-access point for kayaking and canoeing Boggy Creek and Nassau River. Through community green spaces and pocket parks, residents will enjoy a life surrounded by the beautiful greenery where you can connect to the outdoors and Explore More.

Make a Splash

A short drive East on State Road 200 will bring you to Fernandina Beach City Pool. This is the perfect place to go for a refreshing swim with friends or family. Kids will love splashing around in the shallow water Kiddie Pool that features a waterslide and several waterfall fountains, and parents will love the American Red Cross certified lifeguards stationed at each pool.

For a more scenic trip, you can visit Amelia Island State Park, a 200-acre array of “Florida au natural,” featuring saltmarshes, maritime forests and shoreline that sinks miles into the horizon. Dip your toes into the saltwater, picnic in the sugar sand and enjoy the local Florida flora and fauna. Located just over 20 miles East of Tributary and off SR A1A, this State Park is a local treasure.

If a private, resort-style pool sounds like it’s more up your alley, Tributary will soon offer just that. Set to be located at the highly anticipated Amenity Center, the community pool will be the perfect place for families to gather on a hot summer day. Entertain the kids without even leaving the neighborhood!

Play All Day

Nothing is on par more than 18 unique holes of miniature golf for the whole family to take a swing at. Located 10 miles East of Yulee, Island Falls Adventure Golf is surrounded by waterfalls, tunnels and bridges to test your putt-putt game. This leisurely but competitive experience is sure to excite, no caddy necessary.

For a day full of free fun, Tributary Regional Park will soon offer baseball and multipurpose fields, picnic areas, a playground, a dog park and a boardwalk with a canoe or kayak launch. There will be no better place in Nassau County for kids to let loose and play.

Another place for the kids within the community, Tributary’s Adventure Zone playground, will be a guaranteed favorite for children and adults alike. This play space will be where kids can let their imaginations run wild while parents socialize with neighbors.

With all these unique and exciting activities to enjoy in Nassau County, Tributary is creating a place where many young families are looking to set roots. Spanning 1,550 acres, Tributary offers a distinctive collection of new homes from the $300’s built by the area’s premier home builders, Dream Finders Homes, Lennar and Richmond American Homes. The community is located just 1.6 miles west of I-95 along A1A/SR 200 (the Amelia Island exit), and just 15 minutes south, you’ll find the Jacksonville International Airport and River City Marketplace, a major regional shopping, dining and entertainment destination.

Located in the northeast corner of Florida, along the Atlantic Ocean and I-95, picturesque Nassau County sprawls along Florida’s northernmost coast. While it’s known for outdoor adventures on pristine beaches and majestic timberland, one of the area’s best kept secrets is stellar saltwater and freshwater fishing! Dark, sparkling creek water flows through the hammocks and swamps toward the Nassau River, where trophy size largemouth bass and bream are ready to strike. One of the rarely fished hot spots is Lofton Creek, known only among select anglers as a goldmine for bass. The many tidewater feeder streams are perfect examples of the angling adventures awaiting you in Nassau County.

Another prime watering hole for anglers is located just around the corner in Jacksonville, on the St. Johns River. The river runs for twenty-nine miles within Jacksonville, and while you can book a charter, you don’t need a boat to fish the shorelines. There are many waterfront parks and preserves to pull into and enjoy along the river.  Catch a variety of fish including Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Jacks, Tarpon, Flounder and other Inshore saltwater fish.

This time of year is perfect for Trout fishing. Local fishing reports tout the oyster beds down river as the “honey hole” for catching Seatrout and Flounder with jigs and live shrimp. Those looking to explore more of the coastline, Amelia Island is just minutes away where the Mangove Snapper are popping. Discover the gorgeous beaches, native wildlife, and a historic district with quaint shops and cafes. Casting a line into the surf from the beach is possible too. Surf fishing in North Florida is excellent during the summer and early fall seasons. At the southern tip of Amelia Island, you can also find a small jetty and the mile-long George Crady Bridge Fishing Pier. Both spots provide excellent points for catching flounder, sea trout and redfish.

For adventurers and nature lovers looking to immerse themselves in Nassau County’s wonder-coast permanently, the master-planned community Tributary has the answer. This 1,550-acre community is just minutes away from A-rated schools, premium healthcare, and countless outdoor explorations. And the best part?

What is it that’s drawing thousands of people per day to the Sunshine State? After seeing a shift in people’s everyday life and how they work, many more are reevaluating where they want to live based on the new climate. Now more than ever, people are craving authenticity in the way they are living. City dwellers are moving from the urban areas for safe, open spaces, and beautiful Nassau County in North Florida is starting to get a lot of notice. If you’re one of the families that are thinking of making a move, here are six reasons why you should consider Nassau County.

1. Job Opportunities

Nassau County continues to grow, creating many job opportunities along the way. Since May of 2020, the employment rate has expanded steadily in almost every sector. As the medical field expands, multiple healthcare careers have been made available in nearby facilities like UF Health Center and Baptist Medical Center Nassau in Fernandina Beach. The career opportunities don’t stop there, Nassau County consistently outpaces the rest of the state in terms of economic growth and the rate of unemployment is almost 2% lower than the national average.

2. Culture/History

If you’re looking for an Old Florida experience with the picturesque downtowns, look no further! Nassau County is home to charming beach towns full of charisma and historical intrigue. Whether you’re exploring the Amelia Island Lighthouse, Florida’s oldest lighthouse, or stopping by The Palace Saloon, Florida’s oldest bar. The sites decorating Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island have been well preserved, and Florida’s development is correlated directly with the history of Nassau County. Fun Fact: Fernandina Beach is the only location in the United States to have been under eight different flags – French, Spanish, English, Patriot, Green Cross of Florida, Mexican Rebel, Confederate, and United States Flag. Festivities of all sorts happen throughout the year to celebrate the area’s rich history, including the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival.

3. A-Rated Schools

Nassau County’s public school district is recognized as one of the best in the state with a consistent A-rating for the past 10+ years. With 16 fully accredited schools, both public and private K-12, there are a plethora of excellent options to choose from to best fit your child’s educational needs. Classroom excellence projects a great reputation for Nassau County with an approximate graduation rate of 93% in the area’s four high schools.

4. No State Income Tax

This one comes as no surprise! Florida does not have a state income tax. According to the Tax Foundation, Florida has one of the lowest tax burdens in the country which is a big reason why Florida consistently outperforms the rest of the nation in terms of fiscal stability and economic performance, which takes into account the overall business environment, employment and growth opportunities per the U.S. News 2020 Study.

5. Culinary Delights

Everyone has become a “foodie” and seeks out that special meal and environment. With that in mind, some of the most delicious and diverse culinary experiences in Florida can be found right here in Nassau County.

Whether you’re craving the nightlife fun or an authentic eating experience, each restaurant in Nassau County offers remarkable menu items to please your palate.

6. Recreational Activities

The pristine Florida beaches are an integral part of why so many people travel here, but there are plenty of activities to choose from. Nassau County is home to more than 80 golf courses, including Fernandina Beach Golf Club which is one of the most popular municipal golf courses in the Southeastern United States. The PGA Tour is headquartered in Ponte Vedra Beach where it hosts The Players Championship, which is only a short drive south along the coast.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Feb. 11, 2021) – GreenPointe Communities, LLC was honored by the Northeast Florida Builders Association Sales and Marketing Council with seven Laurel Awards. Marketing Director Gaynelle James was named Marketing Professional of the Year and the company received several awards for its community of TrailMark including Best Consumer Promotional event award for Groove in the Grove.

“Gaynelle continues to take our company’s marketing excellence to new heights and her contributions have made a significant impact to multiple operating divisions within our organization,” said GreenPointe Regional President Mike Taylor. “Gaynelle is an accomplished marketing executive and recognized by her peers and colleagues for her creativity and spontaneity. I am thrilled for her to receive this honor for her dedication and commitment to GreenPointe.”

James is responsible for creating the marketing vision, producing strategies and executing tactics that consistently communicate the company’s brand message for GreenPointe’s three operating divisions, corporate headquarters and communities throughout Florida. Among her achievements during the past year, she developed and managed the marketing and promotion for the launch and opening of Tributary, a new master-planned community in Northeast Florida, and held a high-profile groundbreaking for Tributary Regional Park, a public and private partnership between GreenPointe and Nassau County. James developed and managed marketing campaigns for on-site promotional events for three different GreenPointe communities. When the pandemic brought on-site tours by prospective buyers to a halt, James responded by creating virtual tours for five communities throughout Florida. Her efforts and success enhance GreenPointe’s reputation for innovation and results.

With more new communities than ever attracting buyers to Florida, the best way to demonstrate what sets it apart is to showcase the lifestyle through a community event open to all. With expansive outdoor common areas, TrailMark provided the perfect location for a free, live music festival, Groove in the Grove. From midday to sunset, a trio of regional bands entertained approximately 2,000 people next to TrailMark’s Lakeside Camp House. Attendees enjoyed popular local bands and a Family Fun Zone with inflatables, face painting, a mechanical bull, 15 vendors and food trucks, and more. The event resulted in community goodwill, increased awareness and generated hundreds of leads for TrailMark builders while providing a day of music, fun and entertainment for residents and area music-lovers. The extensive and targeted promotion for Groove in the Grove across multiple platforms earned Laurel Awards for Best Overall Advertising Campaign and Best Digital Campaign.

TrailMark received the Laurel Award for Best Facebook page. During 2020, GreenPointe shifted its social media strategy to provide rich content since more people are spending time on social media in lieu of in-person socializing. The Facebook page includes TrailMark announcements, builder news, event promotions, lifestyle tips and provides opportunities to virtually “visit” model homes and the community. With a focus on TrailMark’s nature-first and active living features, the Facebook page showcases the community’s amenities, including biking and walking trails, sports courts, a Camp House amenity center, indoor fitness center and the resort-style pool. Posts include resident- and realtor-shared content. The platform continues to attract followers and helps users make a connection to TrailMark Living.

GreenPointe’s new community of Tributary was honored with Best Print Ad and Best Logo awards. The new community is located along the banks of the Nassau River in the rapidly expanding area of Nassau County, FL. The “Prepare to Blow Your River Lovin’ Mind” ad creates the expectation of a truly life-changing community where families can connect with nature and enjoy special moments through adventure in the neighborhood they call home. Tributary’s pure natural setting served as the vision for developing the logo and brand. The logo is inspired by the natural waterways throughout the area and conveys a true sense of what life has to offer at Tributary.

“GreenPointe shares these Laurel Award honors with our creative partners, Ruckus Advertising and Cotton & Company, and we thank them for bringing our vision to life,” said GreenPointe Marketing Director Gaynelle James. “I am grateful to work with such talented partners and truly appreciate their many contributions to our success.”

If there is anything the last year has taught us it is that peace of mind and good health are priceless. Everyone’s priorities vary in achieving peace of mind, but individual health and the health of loved ones always find their way onto the list. In Nassau County, residents have that peace of mind when it comes to quality healthcare. The area is saturated with some of the finest healthcare establishments in the Sunshine State. Whether your medical need is big or small, there is a resource for you nearby in Nassau County.


UF Health is the region’s premier academic health center hub for clinical research, as well as a unique provider of advanced patient care, leading the industry as a front-runner in the education of health professionals. On December 6th, the new UF Health medical office opened its doors in Nassau County! According to UF Health, this is “the first step in a strategic health alliance between UF Health, the University of Florida, and Raydient Places + Properties offering high-quality health care for residents in the surrounding communities.” The building includes an urgent care center, family medicine, imaging, lab services, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, and adult and pediatric dentistry. The residents of Nassau County will be among the fortunate members to receive a wide range of high-quality health care services and job opportunities.


Baptist Health is also under development in Nassau County. This new hospital and wellness facility will provide a full spectrum of in and outpatient services and 24-hour emergency care. As a result of the tireless commitment of trained doctors and nurses, Baptist Health was recognized as the only system in North Florida to receive Magnet Recognition, a program that presents attraction and retention of professional nurses. The new Baptist Health will be fully integrated within the Baptist Health hospital system delivering quality care and adding convenience to the residents of North Jacksonville.


This newly constructed rehabilitation center has served the senior residents of North Florida since its opening in March 2020 and was the first long term care facility in the state to receive Covid-19 vaccinations. The new center consists of 116 dually certified beds in 81,000 square feet and spans 10 acres in size. Services include three gyms and a therapy courtyard with an emphasis on physical, speech, and occupational therapy. Several rooms offer an oxygen delivery system. The new facility features an ultra-modern design and state of the art equipment allowing the facility to provide residents unparalleled short-term rehabilitation along with long-term care.


Another health care provider has a facility planned within a mile of Nassau County. HCA Healthcare, the parent company of Memorial Hospital, purchased 55.28 acres for 15.8 million and will be under development. “It will allow us to establish a future presence in Nassau County and to align with the planned growth in the region,” said Bradley Talbert, CEO of Memorial Hospital. The medical team is delighted to be part of the Nassau Community and serve the area’s fast-growing medical needs. Located directly at Interstate 95 and Florida A1A, this memorial site plays an important role in Nassau County’s medical community.

When starting a new journey, there are many paths you can plan that could lead you to the result you desire. The same goes for those beginning the search for a new home. One path, that has gained quite a bit of admiration in recent months with home inventory shrinking, is that of buying pre-construction. Here are a few reasons why homebuyers have been trending toward purchasing pre-construction homes.

Best Value and Pricing

New communities with special pre-construction offerings, like Tributary in Nassau County, FL, provide incentives to pioneering homebuyers who become early adopters of the community’s lifestyle. The long-term savings are often overlooked as homebuyers don’t always recognize that new construction comes lower cost of energy and maintenance as compared to older homes. Buying early often creates instant equity. With historically low interest rates and a tight resale market, pre-construction communities are also experiencing rising demand.

Personal Style and Design

In purchasing a pre-construction home, homebuyers are able to make their home truly their own. From selecting the ideal homesite, to the personalized floorplan and desired finishes. Homebuyers can put their personal stamp based on the family’s needs and desires easier with a pre-construction purchase. Tributary is located in the serene nature of Northeast Florida and boasts over 30 modern, rustic home designs to chose from. Getting in early at Tributary could mean finding your family’s next oasis.

Resort-Style Amenities

Buying into a new community also means being pampered with today’s latest amenity trends. Developers at Tributary are meticulously designing and engineering the community’s amenities to meet the demand for outdoor activities close to home. The Lookout, the highly anticipated social club house at Tributary, will feature a resort-style pool, Adventure Zone tot-lot, state-of-the-art fitness center, an array of sports courts and entertainment areas and more. And the best part? Tributary is designed and seated in Florida’s natural environment, bringing future residents all the wondrous biodiversity, water journeys, endless trails and adventure right to their door. Residents of Tributary can explore a beautifully designed trail systems that will connect to Four Creeks State Forest and Tributary Park.

Like what you’ve heard about pre-construction opportunities? Although Tributary’s designer decorated models are not yet complete, the community’s new website provides a virtual digital home shopping experience for future homebuyers. This new site gives homebuyers the ability to preview select properties in a high definition interactive experience.

Breathe in. Breathe out. Unplug. Take a breath of fresh air. There has never been a better time to step away from what seems like an endless supply of screens and take time to improve your mental and physical health. There are plenty of workouts taking social media by storm, although now even many of those involve screens and other technology, but doctors suggest what some would call the world’s oldest form of exercise, a hike. It’s no wonder the developers of Tributary in Nassau County expect the community’s trail system to be its top amenity.

While many people love hiking for the enjoyment of it, there is no denying that your typical stroll through the woods can not only improve your physical well-being but your mental health as well. Researchers at the University of British Columbia found that using hiking as an aerobic exercise can improve memory and cognitive ability along with relieving a tremendous amount of stress. According to WebMD, more and more doctors are writing “nature prescriptions” or “ecotherapy” for stress related illnesses. Hiking has also been found to help individuals improve their focus and sharpen their problem-solving skills.

Like many other aspects of our lives, convenience plays a major factor in an individual’s actions, maybe none more so than physical and mental training. Living close to hiking trails and parks would give those residents an advantage compared to those living in a busy cityscape. Luckily for Northeast Florida and Nassau County, the new master-planned community Tributary will be the ideal location to unwind and unplug.

At Tributary, every day will be the perfect day to get outside and hit the trail! There is a fierce commitment to connect people to the outdoors and provide the health and wellness benefits that come with living in a walkable community. The natural paradise within Tributary will provide residents the chance to immerse themselves in the amazing scenery as they meander their way through the many hiking and biking trails, community green spaces and pocket parks currently being developed. Masterfully planned and constructed by Avid Trails, they come with a promise: “We personally design our trails to capitalize on the unique features within each community, it’s the perfect place for people to get outside, have fun, and be happy.”

Along with the hidden mental health benefits of outdoor activities, there are plenty of obvious physical health benefits. Hiking trails or uneven terrain has been found to use 28 percent more energy than walking on flat ground. On average, a moderate hike can burn 300-400 calories per hour. Of course, that number can easily be skewed depending on a variety of factors like length and speed of the hike. But there is no denying that your physical health will improve when you hit the trails.

Tributary will span over 1,500 acres and feature trail systems connecting each neighborhood and the trailheads of Four Creeks State Forest and Tributary Regional Park.

After months of isolation, there is no doubt that many have reconsidered where they want to live, and precisely what they want in a home. City dwellers are moving in masses to the suburbs, partly to have a better place to work virtually, but also for safe and natural open spaces. For many, the Sunshine State is the end goal of this migration, and for many great reasons.

A Return to Normalcy

Another mitigating factor for the influx is Florida’s return to normalcy. Businesses are open, students are returning to school, and life is getting back to normal compared to other states across the country. The perfect year-round weather, sandy coasts, and of course the crystal-clear water are other big draws to the Sunshine State. Many journeyed to Florida since March to escape the chaos and shutdowns of the cities, and plenty of those people decided to stay and buy homes.

Compared to other states, Florida is definitely more affordable, and there is no state income tax or wealth tax. As well as year-round ideal weather and being surrounded by nature, today’s homebuyers also desire a little distance from major cities. Yet they want to be close enough to international airports, top area attractions and A-rated schools. The simple reality is that a majority of people now want wide open spaces set in nature, and we have just the place.

Escape to Nature

With historically low interest rates, affordable new construction, open floor plans, and larger shared spaces for growing families, the new master-planned community Tributary is today’s homebuyers’ perfect choice. This community offers design perfection in a beautiful, natural sanctuary. Tributary has exactly what suburban-seeking homeowners are looking for, and the community’s homebuilders just broke ground on the new Model Home Village which is set to feature six beautifully designed model homes! Situated in the northeast corner of Florida in beautiful Nassau County, along the Atlantic Ocean, the area is known for amazing outdoor adventures on pristine beaches and majestic timberland. Residing along Boggy Creek and the Nassau River, Tributary’s backyard is a nature lover’s paradise.

Tributary thrives on community, with endless outdoor activities and social settings for the entire family. There is so much to experience you will never run out of ways to explore more. Tributary is mindfully designed around Florida’s natural environment, bringing future residents all the wondrous biodiversity, fishing, and adventure right to their door (and their backyard).
