Florida may be warm and sunny all year long, but the start of summer is still something to celebrate! That makes now a great time to plan for seasonal good times in and around Ormond Beach.
Thankfully, there’s no shortage of attractions and interesting events throughout the summer that offer insight and entertainment for people of all ages. With a little planning and creativity, it’s easy to make this season the best ever for you and your family. Get started with this advice:
Be a Local Explorer
It’s no secret that people from across the country and the world flock to the Ormond Beach area each summer to soak up the sun and enjoy top-notch attractions and amenities. Embrace the perk of living in a tourist hot spot by discovering local points of interest.
For example, The Casements was the summer residence of John D. Rockefeller. Today, you can get an in-depth look of what life was like here in the mid-1900s. Across the street from The Casements is Rockefeller Park, where kids can enjoy a playground, and your family can relax and unwind with a leisurely walk around this waterfront park.
There are also many other attractions in town, including the Ormond Memorial Art Museum and Gardens, and many unique shops and restaurants you simply won’t find anywhere else.
Get Creative Inside
Even the Sunshine State isn’t immune to occasional inclement weather. In fact, during the summer months you can almost set your clock by a daily afternoon thunderstorm. That’s no reason to end the party, however. Ideas for indoor fun abound.
Along with craft projects, kids love physical activities such as the SkyZone in Daytona Beach or Ace Gymnastics in Port Orange. The Daytona Ice Arena brings a taste of winter’s cold to Central Florida.
For hands-on fun and learning, the Marine Discovery Center in New Smyrna Beach offers up close and personal encounters with authentic marine life. All of these attractions are just a short drive from Ormond Beach. That means once the sun comes out again, you can get back to the outdoor fun.
Schedule the Perfect Beach Day
To that end, the family-friendly oceanside access in Ormond Beach can’t be beat. Tour the beach to find your ideal location, or check out some of the safe and clean accommodations in and around town.
For example, Andy Romano Beachfront Park features spacious restrooms, a playground, kids’ splash pad, plus picnic tables and grills, all within a few feet of the sand. That makes it easy to spend an entire day at the beach, helping you and your family make precious and lasting memories.
Nature appreciation in the area doesn’t end there, though. When you drive the Ormond Scenic Loop and Trail (affectionately known as simply “The Loop”), you can access natural attractions such as Bulow Creek State Park, Tomoka State Park, and more.
Plan Ahead for Year Round Fun
In fact, many people who visit Ormond Beach choose to live here for all or part of the year. They love the laid-back atmosphere and family-friendly vibe. People often comment on how kind and polite their neighbors are, and how they feel more at home here than they have anywhere else.
