People have been flocking to Ormond Beach for decades, and it’s no small wonder why. This family-friendly beachside community has kept its small town charm, while still providing access to modern amenities and outstanding attractions to delight people of all ages. It’s one of the many reasons why more people who visit Ormond Beach choose to return to the area to live for all or part of the year.
In fact, that trend has been going strong for decades now. The area’s most famous resident, John D. Rockefeller, specifically chose Ormond Beach for the health-improving qualities he believed were present in the area. Now, you and your loved ones can log many days of fun in the bright Central Florida sunshine. Get started with these suggestions.
World Famous Beach
You may be aware that Ormond Beach is known worldwide for the spacious shoreline and clear waters. But did you know that this area was also the beginning of what became NASCAR? In fact, at the entrance to beach from Granada Boulevard, you’ll see a replica of the original Ormond Garage where some race cars were worked on.
At the beach itself, there’s plenty of fun to be had, from swimming and wading, to sun bathing, and more. You can even make a day of it and have a family picnic at Andy Romano Beachfront Park, where you’ll find pavilions with tables, accessible restrooms, a playground and splash pad for the kids, and more.
Fishing and Watersports
Ormond Beach is uniquely situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Halifax River. That makes it possible to experience both fresh and saltwater enjoyment in the same day. You won’t get that kind of versatility just anywhere. Whether you enjoy fishing, boating, or simply reflecting on life by the waterside, it’s all possible in Ormond Beach.
In addition, two nationally-recognized state parks feature majestic water views. Both Tomoka State Park and Bulow Creek State Park are conveniently situated just off the Ormond Scenic Loop and Trail. Here, you can get up close and personal with native wildlife and vegetation, but still be close enough to civilization to enjoy a fine meal or shopping experience in the growing and thriving downtown of Ormond Beach.
Another favorite outing is paddle boarding along the Tomoka River. You’ll marvel at the tall palm trees and canopy from other trees along this picturesque water route.
Every Day Enjoyment
Situated nearby is the peaceful and dynamic community of Halifax Plantation. Here, you’re close to needed amenities and wanted attractions, but still far enough from the action that you can find your center and truly enjoy life to the fullest.
The same is true for the other communities in which Vanacore Home builds. In fact, for nearly 30 years, we’ve helped people just like you find their ideal spot in neighborhoods such as Bulow Creek Preserve, River Oaks, Il Villaggio, Westland Village, and Southern Pines.
