Nocatee was recently named the winner of’s 2017 Bold City Best Home Community Development.

As the nation's 3rd best-selling community, Nocatee stands out both locally and nationally. The event-filled Nocatee lifestyle, strong sense of community, and wide variety of builders and home styles are a handful of reasons the community is so desirable.

According to Nocatee’s Director of Marketing Kelly Ray, “Residents love the amenities, including the events and activities, as well as the location – we’re the only master-planned community located this close to the beach, which is certainly a unique lifestyle.” Positioned between Downtown Jacksonville and St. Augustine, the location is second to none on the First Coast.

Nocatee Wins Bold City BestOutdoor and water recreation are also huge parts of the Nocatee lifestyle as the community boasts over 5,000 acres of connecting parks, protected wildlife areas, and preserved wetlands. Residents have access to trails and paths for everything from walking to driving around in their electric vehicles/golf-carts. Nocatee’s Greenway Trails allow residents of all neighborhoods to easily travel throughout the community. Splash Waterpark, which opened in 2010, features the tallest waterslide in Northeast Florida, a zip line, lazy river, and much more. Nocatee Spray Park, located across from the Splash Waterpark, will be the next addition to the list of water amenities available for residents. Spray is set to open in 2018 and will be a four-story interactive water spray-ground.

“There’s water and amenities all throughout the Nocatee community. We really try to offer an amenity within walking distance to every home – certainly within biking or golf cart distance.”
