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.
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.
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!
Nothing is on par more than 18 unique holes of miniature golf for the whole family to take a swing at.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. Fernandina Beach is the birthplace of the modern shrimping industry, no doubt supplying the freshest of seafood, and cuisine of all kinds decorate the area. 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.
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. Four Creeks State Park and Three Rivers State Forest are great locations for wildlife viewing, camping, biking, hiking, and horseback riding is a memorable experience to take in the beauty of the surrounding nature. For the art lovers, farmer’s markets, art tours, and museums line the area making it a colorful, dynamic place to live and discover.
Ideally located in Nassau County, surrounded by thousands of acres of state-protected parks and preserves, is a new master-planned community. Developed by GreenPointe Developers, this expansive community spans over 1,500 acres and will have a total of 3,200 homesites upon completion.

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.

Living within city limits of major metropolitan areas used to be a must for many career-focused families. Being close to the office and steps away from the energetic buzz of culture and nightlife were perks that offset things like higher living costs and less square footage that come with city living. Over the last year however, homeowners have started re-evaluating what they are looking for in buying a home and have prioritized lifestyle in addition to short term needs. As a result, the market has seen a trend of people widening their home search to the suburbs and surrounding areas. This new trend is having a considerable impact on the U.S. housing market by changing consumer sentiment and behavior, let’s see why.
As homeowners seek out residences with more room and comfortable remote workspaces, sales for single-family properties in the suburbs have surged 17.3% since June. Prices for suburban housing remain competitive and interest rates are historically low, making it considerably appealing to move away from the city. This new trend is also bringing families together. Homeowners figure why not invest in a larger, updated space with more amenities and closer to nature? Properties in communities with nature trails, nearby parks, and water activities are seeing a surge in online searches.
Located in the northeast corner of Florida, beautiful Nassau County sprawls along Florida’s northernmost coast. A new master-planned community by GreenPointe Developers offers incredible value in a beautiful, natural sanctuary. Tributary has exactly what today’s suburban-seeking home buyers are looking for. This 1,550-acre community is set in nature and just minutes away from A-rated schools, premium healthcare, and countless outdoor adventures.
Millions of people are now working remotely from home, so the need to be close to an office has dwindled. Homeowners now want the place they live to be optimized for virtual work, and they want their “office” to be comfortable. This trend has also seen a 20% leasing drop in commercial real estate, meaning businesses are also embracing the new digital wave for their employees. Homeowners are saving too, with the elimination of daycare costs, commuting, parking, and even tax advantages that come with a home office. A recent study found that remote workers are 13% more efficient than office employees. This bodes well for future remote-work strategies, where companies may decide to switch up traditional workplace structures.
The recent need to stay home and social distance has also caused a great increase in popular outdoor activities. Individuals and families alike are spending more time outside in the fresh air and natural light, reconnecting with nature. North Florida’s new community, Tributary, has the solution for homeowners wanting to get away from the urban landscape. Tributary is designed and seated in Florida’s natural environment, bringing future residents all the wondrous biodiversity, fishing, and adventure right to their door. Residents can hike a wonderfully designed trail system that connects to Four Creeks State Forest and Tributary Regional Park. Amelia Island is close by and features pristine beaches, native wildlife, and a historic district with quaint shops and cafes.
Within the Tributary community, residents will enjoy the outdoor lifestyle, lagoon-style pool, fitness center, activities at the fun-filled Lookout Amenity Center, kayak launch, and beautifully designed trail systems. Master-planned and surrounded by nature, residents will never run out of ways to Explore More. New modern-rustic homes from the area’s top builders: Dream Finders, Lennar and Richmond American Homes, start from the $300s. Interested homebuyers can stay connected at TributaryLiving.com and be first to learn of any updates such as the opening of the Model Home Village in early 2021.
If you’re looking for a new suburban community surrounded by nature, Tributary has it all: value, impeccable design and planning, and amazing amenities. Upstream your lifestyle today!
A lot of things come to mind when you hear the word “forever”. It’s exciting to imagine what life has in store for you over the next 25- 30 years. One thing is certain, you are going to spend a great deal of your life here with your family, and the place you choose to call “home” should have all the features you want. As you grow through the years, your home should have the ability to grow with you. From babies, to teenagers, through college years and into empty nest stages, your home will be central to many of life’s joys and moments together. So what features are most important when considering a “forever home”? Let us help you put things into perspective.
One of the most important factors that comes to play when finding a “forever home” is an ideal location. This choice is critical to the needs and wants of everyone in your household, both now and in the future. As home prices within city limits continue to rise, and the ability to work remotely has become increasingly possible, many people are deciding to relocate to the surrounding suburbs of major cities. The appeal of more space for your money, while still being in close proximity to popular dining spots and area attractions, is greatly influencing homebuyers’ criteria as they begin their “forever home” search. The desire to reconnect with nature is also a huge draw. Communities that promote active outdoor lifestyles are becoming increasingly popular, as are homes with lots of natural light sources, fresh air and outdoor spaces to enjoy and entertain in. Zoning plays a major part in the “forever home” search too. Families with school age children want access to quality education at all levels of learning.
Recently, Florida has made the news as hundreds of people each day are moving from northern states, causing home sales to more than double across the Sunshine State. Nassau County’s own master-planned community, Tributary, is quickly becoming one of the state’s most sought out addresses. Located just north of Jacksonville and only 2 exits from the international airport, Tributary residents will find the freedom to enjoy a healthy, outdoorsy lifestyle while being in close proximity to the thriving Jacksonville region. It truly is a one-of-a-kind location surrounded by nature, close to A-rated schools, historic downtowns, shopping and incredible beaches.
If a move to Florida is in your sights, this is definitely a place you want to check out.
Another major factor of your “forever home” search is its design and functionality. Is there enough square footage to accommodate your current life and future plans? Will you need room to grow or flexible living areas and multi-purpose spaces? The way you plan to use your space over the years should be considered. New construction homes are highly desired by first time home buyers and actually within reach. Open floorplans with modern and energy efficient features that are customizable to each buyers’ unique tastes are attainable in new communities popping up in the less pricey suburbs of cities. Another feature important to buyers is outdoor space. Backyards for children to run and play, for pets to frolic or space for hobbies like gardening are features of your home that add value and promote well-being.
Lastly, your “forever home” must be within your budget. The current state of the housing market definitely has its opportunities right now. Historically low interest rates are opening the doors of homeownership to many who may have previously been priced out of the market. Other factors like Florida’s below average cost of living and absence of state income tax are both huge draws for people thinking of relocating to the southeast. The option to affordably build your dream home within a new community is also now a reality.
Ultimately, your “forever home” should have everything you want and more. A great location, a functional floorplan and design with your personal touches, and an affordable price tag. If you are currently residing in or considering a move to sunny North Florida, Nassau County is a growing area that’s worth a look. GreenPointe Developers have unveiled Tributary, an exciting master-planned community located just two miles west of I-95 off of SR200/A1A.
Tributary’s renowned amenities will serve as the social centerpiece of the community. The Lookout Amenity Center will include a sparkling, lagoon-style pool, Adventure Zone tot-lot, paw-some dog park, state-of-the-art fitness studio and an array of sports courts. Pocket parks and trails that directly connect to neighboring Four Creeks State Forest as well as a kayak launch are all being designed to encourage outdoor fun and bring family and friends together to create memories right in your own backyard.

YULEE, FL – The first release of homesites have sold out at Dream Finders Homes‘ newest master-planned community in Nassau County. Fifteen lots sold within a two-week period in August at Tributary, where the homebuilder will initially build more than 60 new single-family homes
One and two-story floorplans range from 1,613 to 3,285 square feet of living area with three to five bedrooms and two to five bathrooms and two and three-car garages. Base floorplan prices start from the $300s.
Two model homes are well underway in Tributary: the Driftwood plan for 50-foot homesites and the popular Avalon II designed for 60-foot homesites. Professionally decorated models will be ready for touring by late 2020, according to Brad Muston, Division President.
“This is a beautiful community in a natural setting that will offer a lakefront amenity center, a resort-style swimming pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, an array of sports courts, and entertainment areas,” he said. “A comprehensive trail system is a key feature of this community and residents will enjoy family-friendly pocket parks and a dog park within nature-filled surroundings.”
Tributary is situated amid North Florida’s natural beauty with access to Boggy Creek that leads to the Nassau River and ultimately the Atlantic Ocean, all providing a variety of water sports opportunities.
Top-notch healthcare is minutes away along with A-rated schools, the Amelia Island beaches and major roadways providing easy access to downtown and the Jacksonville airport, Muston explained.
“There has already been an overwhelming response in our next phase of lots. We expect great success from this community and encourage buyers to take a look today as these homes go quickly.”
At buildout, the development will comprise approximately 3,200 homes spanning 1,550 acres located where A1A meets Edwards Road in Yulee.
Rent or Buy? For many average American workers, the dream of owning a home has been a lofty aspiration. Renting was a choice by necessity, not the end game. Now, with the current climate creating uncertainty in many areas of life, home ownership may be a silver lining that results from the events of 2020. Historically low interest rates are opening the doors to homeownership to many who may have previously been priced out of the market. It might sound surprising, but now may be the ideal time to transition from renting to buying, or just to make a move in general. Here are the three main things to consider:
The current state of the market certainly has its opportunities right now. Those in the seller’s shoes can negotiate higher prices for their properties due to limited existing inventory. Buyers, on the other hand, can take advantage of competitively priced homes and extremely low interest rates. The option to affordably build your dream home within a new community may also be on the table.
Potential buyers may be in a perfect position to capitalize on their situation. And if they have money already set aside to invest and job stability, even better! Timing is a key factor when considering a home purchase.
Homeownership offers not only the benefits of stability, belonging to a community and pride of ownership, but also greater financial flexibility. There are special types of loans offered to individuals like first time home buyers or veterans, tax breaks and the opportunity to build equity and long-term wealth for yourself and your family. And since interest rates are so low, your mortgage payment will most likely be less than what you were spending in rent. There are even new communities currently being developed aimed at providing a variety of options to meet every budget. Tributary, a new community by GreenPointe Developers, is bringing a new style of modern-rustic homes to Nassau County that are competitively priced from the $300s. You can take a look at the impressive selection of 30+ distinctively designed single-family homes here.
Why are you thinking of buying a new home? Is your family growing, downsizing, or are you just looking to make a move to an area more suited to your lifestyle? A growing number of people now have the flexibility to work remotely, decreasing the need to reside near and commute to an office every day. This is allowing those the option to expand their home search to more areas bringing in more choices to consider. Millennial buyers are now at the age of starting families and deciding that more square footage, quality school systems, abundant outdoor space and new communities with family-friendly amenities are a critical component of their home searches.

For many across the country, society’s “new normal” has considerably limited their social life and changed their perspective for the future. And while it’s likely to be considered risky to gather in large groups of family and friends for a while longer, maybe this is the time to explore all the ways to connect with the great outdoors! North Florida is full of amazing natural wonders with wide open spaces and fun attractions. While Nassau County is a path less traveled, it offers a diverse array of activities that has homebuyers appreciating their surroundings like never before. Here are some activities we think will spark any adventurer’s interest.
If you love the ocean, you have to visit Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. Located on the coastline in northeast Florida, these destinations are easy to reach but hard to forget. 13 miles of coastline and over 40 public beach access points allows for plenty of room to relax under the sun, swim in the cool water, or catch some waves if the surf’s up. Top surf spots on the North side include Main Beach, American Beach, Peters Point and Ft. Clinch State Park. You can even check out the area’s surf reports and cams before paddling out. And if you want to literally “hoof it”, you can book a guided local tour of the pristine Atlantic shore by horseback.
For those who prefer traveling on their own two feet, a visit to the area’s best hiking and nature trails will keep you grounded. You can choose to explore yourself, or book a guided nature walk that takes place every Saturday morning at 10:30 am. Four Creeks State Forest covers 13,106 acres, and joins Alligator (Mills), Thomas, Boggy and Plummer Creeks. While there are many ways to explore this massive forest along the forest and service roads, the named Wood-Shingle Mill Trail stretches 2.6 miles from the trailhead located right off State Road 200. If a visit isn’t enough and you want to immerse yourself in nature, Nassau County’s newest community, Tributary, may be exactly what you’ve been searching for. This new community will feature masterfully planned trails that not only wind through its green spaces and parks, but also directly connects to the trailheads of neighboring Four Creeks State Forest.
Nearby, John Muir Ecological Park in Yulee is an easy quarter mile trail that zigzags through the forested marshland connecting a series of picnic shelters. Listen to the birds sing from the trees and even see the main line of one of Florida’s first railroads. History meets nature at Fort Clinch State Park. This historic fort, significant to the Civil War, is only one aspect of the 1,400-acre park. Hiking trails cover all types of terrain and difficulty levels, while winding through forests, marsh and sand dunes. Wildlife observation is very good on these trails. Alligators, deer, gopher tortoises and a variety of birds can be seen throughout the park.
For those looking to trek where the grasses are a bit more maintained, North Florida has almost unlimited options for golf. Nassau County in particular has a handful of courses to choose from. To name a few, the Amelia River Golf Club is a full-service semi-private golf course with a club house, pro shop, PGA golf instruction, practice areas, locker rooms and dining facilities which are open to the public. The 27-hole Fernandina Beach Golf Club is one of the most popular municipal golf facilities in the country with its close proximity to Jacksonville and area beaches. The Golf Club at North Hampton is a signature Arnold Palmer designed golf course. This top-ranked course features spring-fed lakes, wild grasses and various elevation changes, unlike any other design in Northeast Florida.
Still not getting your adrenaline levels up…how does social distancing from 12,000 feet above ground sound? Then freefalling at speeds of over 125 miles per hour. Did I get your attention? Skydiving is definitely a high octane, once in a lifetime adventure and one of the best ways for thrill seekers to take in all of Northern Florida’s natural beauty.
No matter your interests or speeds, Nassau County has something for every outdoor adventurer. One of its most anticipated additions is Tributary, a new master-planned community by GreenPointe Developers that delivers unmatched value in a beautiful, natural sanctuary. Residents of Tributary are invited to “Explore More” with a thoughtfully planned trail system that directly connects to Four Creeks State Forest and Tributary Park. Within the 1,550-acre master-planned community, residents will also enjoy The Lookout Amenity Center complete with a resort-inspired pool, fitness studio, dog park, Adventure Zone Tot-Lot, and so much more! Homes are priced from the $300s, have been unveiled and can be viewed on TributaryLiving.com. Six of the builders’ unique model homes will soon break ground and be ready to tour later this year.
