In rural Nassau County, Florida, people still run into friends they know at the grocery store. The whole town turns out for Friday night football. And you can still find land where you won’t see your neighbors every time you step outside.
In many other places, you would have to make a choice between the charms of living country or the convenience of living close to businesses, attractions and city life. Nassau County is a rare exception that offers easy access to both.
Just south of the Florida-Georgia border and north of Jacksonville, it has sprawling, wooded land on its western side beyond Interstate 95 near small, charming Southern towns like Hilliard, where Saturdays are for fishing or kayaking on the quiet waters of the St. Marys River, and Callahan, where the local hardware store doubles as a museum. Although the area feels as country as can be, it’s just 30 minutes or less from the beach, Jacksonville International Airport and the east coast’s most important highway, Interstate 95.
