Niche, an online publisher of nationwide rankings and reviews for schools, cities, neighborhoods and more, has named Nocatee the top residential community in Florida. In its 2023 rankings, Niche gave the master-planned community an overall A+ grade, naming it the No. 1 best place to raise a family in Florida out of 1,177 locales evaluated statewide. 


"Nocatee continues to set the standard for world-class community living in the Sunshine State and nationally," said Rick Ray, CEO of The PARC Group, the master developer of Nocatee. "Being recognized at this level is an honor that motivates us to continue raising the bar for our residents." 

Nocatee also received high marks for its public schools, jobs, outdoor activities, and health and fitness amenities, all of which received A grades. 


The rankings are calculated based on Niche user data, aggregated student- and parent-submitted surveys, public information and other benchmarks — all statistically balanced to ensure comprehensive and reliable assessments. 


"There isn’t a better place to raise a family in the country," according to one reviewer. "Best schools in the state, golf cart accessibility throughout the community, great neighbors, amazing events, two resort-style waterparks and more." 


"Nocatee is a place that makes everyone feel welcome and appreciated," wrote another resident. "The amount of support and activities provided to residents is something I have never experienced before." 


As the demand for new homes and the Nocatee Lifestyle continues growing, The PARC Group has announced new neighborhoods planned to open in 2023 and 2024. With new amenities, the addition of two health campuses and many new retailers in its Town Center, it's evident why Newsweek named Nocatee the No. 1 Place to Live in Florida.
