Florida is home to many beautiful stretches of shoreline—the white sands of the Gulf Coast, the vibrant waters of the Emerald Coast and beyond. But only Ormond Beach and the surrounding area has the honor of being known as Florida’s “Fun Coast.” And it’s a reputation we embody every day!
Just read on to learn more about why our stretch of coastline is such a beloved family fun destination.
The Fun Coast is perfectly positioned to boast a wide variety of beautiful beaches—including “The World’s Most Famous Beach” itself, a.k.a. Daytona Beach! The lively culture scene here, equipped with ample restaurants, shopping and musical opportunities at The Bandshell, is so much more than your basic day at the beach—but when you’re craving something a little quieter, especially during these days of social distancing, you can find what you’re looking for on quiet stretches of shoreline in Ormond Beach. Or go surfing at the famous waves of New Smyrna Beach! Wherever you roam, you have options, and that’s what makes our Fun Coast a flexible destination for all.
Beyond the beach, there is much to explore by way of on-the-water fun, too! Bring out your own boat or hop aboard one of many chartered boat and tour cruise options as you explore the Halifax River for an intracoastal adventure—or head out to the open ocean for fishing fun and serious cruising. And of course, our sunny climate permits year-round water fun in your very own backyard pool.
From countless museums and nature destinations like the Marine Science Center, to centers of thrill-seeking like the Daytona International Speedway, there’s something for kids (and kids-at-heart, too) to enjoy at every corner.
Golf is one of the Sunshine State’s favorite pastimes, and nowhere is our love of the greens clearer than Daytona Beach and the Fun Coast—in fact, when you find or build your home with Vanacore Homes, many of those great golf opportunities are right in your backyard, literally.
Fun for history buffs, too
Is there a history buff in the family? The Fun Coast is steeped in rich Florida history, too, housing historic destinations like The Casements (John D. Rockefeller’s gorgeous winter home by the river), the Birthplace of Speed and many more.
