Nocatee is a coastal community located just south of Jacksonville.

These neighborhoods – such as River Landing at Twenty Mile – within the community create a strong sense of neighborliness. Residents experience small-town charm with a huge range of amenities within the overall community, including shopping, dining, and even a water park!

It’s easy to see why Nocatee would be ranked highly, and in fact, it received an A+ overall rating from Niche and an A+ rating for being good for families.
