Nocatee launches ‘NocaTour’


Prospective homebuyers thinking about moving to Nocatee now have another option for learning more about the fast-growing master-planned community: the NocaTour.

Through the new tour, guests will have an opportunity to take a 30-minute golf cart journey through the community’s Greenway Trails, viewing many of Nocatee’s most popular amenities along the way.

“The NocaTour really makes guests get excited about living in Nocatee,” Welcome Center Representative Julie Alen said. “When we take folks out in the golf cart, it really gives them a sense of what it’s like living among the green.”

Conducted by Welcome Center representatives, the tour takes guests along the community’s golf cart paths and through the Greenway Trails. The route takes visitors past Nocatee Community Park – with its dog park and children’s playground – and the back side of the tennis courts. The tour continues past one of Nocatee’s athletics fields before entering the Greenway Trails, traveling over picturesque wooden bridges and through acres of preserve land. Along the way, Welcome Center staff describe the amenities and point out the nearby Nocatee neighborhoods, including Coastal Oaks, Del Webb and Willowcove. Often, the NocaTour will pass Nocatee residents jogging, bicycling or walking their dogs along the trails.

The tour then loops around and returns to the Welcome Center, where guests may visit the Splash Water Park, the lap pool, athletic courts and other Nocatee amenities.

Alen said the tour also demonstrates the appeal of living in a community that’s easily accessible by golf cart. “With a golf cart, Nocatee residents can go to Publix, get a haircut, attend a swim meet or go to ‘Food Truck Friday’ without ever having to get in a car,” Alen said. “So the NocaTour is a great selling tool for the Nocatee lifestyle.”

That selling tool will be in even greater demand, Alen added, as word continues to spread about Nocatee. For the past several years, Nocatee has ranked as one of the top-selling master-planned communities in the nation.

“We’ve had people come to the Welcome Center from South Africa, Italy and the Bahamas,” Alen said. “Nocatee is now on the map!”

Currently, NocaTours are offered at 9 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Thursday through Saturday and at noon on Sunday. Reservations may be made by signing up on or calling the Nocatee Welcome Center at (904) 924-6863.
