Welcome to Nassau County, Florida. Situated along the Atlantic Ocean in the northeast corner of Florida, this county is home to beautiful Amelia Island — a prime vacation spot with its sandy white beaches, diverse activities and spectacular sunsets — as well as several other small towns and communities.
A peaceful drive out U.S. Highway 301 South will take you to the small hamlet of Bryceville. Though the community is small, its aspirations are not. The community has its own fire station, post office and school. There’s affordable real estate and lovely homes for sale that anyone would be proud to call their own. And with Amelia Island and its beautiful amenities nearby, you’ll never lack for fun things that you and your family can do when you call this community home.
Nassau County has a history dating back to the mid-16th century, not counting the centuries that it was inhabited by Native Americans. Spanish, French and English colonies brought their rich heritage and customs to the area throughout the 16th and 17th centuries, bringing railroads, lumber mills, Victorian mansions, bridges and more. Settlements were established and some grew into towns. Some, like Bryceville, maintained their small size but nevertheless became home to those looking for great properties with a short drive to the beach, work and other destinations.
Schools in Bryceville
Kindergarten to 5th grade students can enjoy their elementary school years in Bryceville Elementary School, and they’re likely to foster fond memories of their tutelage there. Rated 10 out of 10 by Greatschools.org, Bryceville Elementary School proudly proclaims: Strong Team = Strong School! Effective and dedicated teachers guide children through their formative years and their success is reflected in the statistics: in 2012, math and reading scores eclipsed state averages and exceeded or were around Nassau County averages. Once they are ready to attend middle school in nearby Callahan and on to post-secondary schools in nearby areas, students are more than prepared to meet the academic challenges they face in these higher grades.
Things to Do
Bryceville may be a small place, but there’s plenty to do. The town’s own Melissa Lynn Raulerson Sports Complex and Bryceville Community Center offer great opportunities to get in some recreational time and engage in social activities.
Amelia Island is just an hour to the east, and what can’t you do there? As if thirteen miles of pristine beaches aren’t enough, there’s plenty of fine dining, historic sites, biking and hiking trails, unique shops, festivals and even world-class golf courses. See the historic architecture of homes and real estate in Fernandina Beach. Get a taste of the Shrimp Festival or a listen to a Blues or Jazz Festival. Or simply stroll the beach, take a cruise or surf the waves.
Located just 12 miles up U.S. Highway 301 is Cary State Forest. The second state forest established in the state, in 1939, Cary State Forest offers hiking, camping, horseback riding and chances to observe the wildlife that call the forest home. It’s a great place for the whole family to spend an afternoon: enjoying the outdoors and connecting to nature in a spectacular way.
And it’s only a short drive to Jacksonville, just 30 minutes southeast if you’re looking for some city life. There are museums, theatres, arts centers, gardens, restaurants and even a zoo. You’ll always find plenty to do when you spend the day in Jacksonville.
