Highlight Community of the Week - Ormond Beach

Managing Real Estate Broker with Regal | Christie's International Real Estate BK659279 


Ormond Beach, Florida

A picturesque seaside city located on the east coast of Florida,

just north of Daytona Beach. 

Ormond Beach is a first class resort with a small town feel... beautiful sandy beaches, great restaurants, and a fabulous year round climate make this not only a wonderful place to visit but also a great place to live in Florida.

The subtropical climate with a wonderful seabreeze and afternoon showers during the summer months tends to cool things down.  There is a  "seabreeze effect" as it is known, that takes the heat generated over land and mixes with the cooler climate over the Atlantic Ocean to generate a cooling breeze over the peninsula and slightly inland. Actual temperatures in Ormond Beach can be several degrees cooler than in other Central Florida areas.

The Halifax River (Intracoastal Waterway) flows through Ormond Beach, and the Atlantic Ocean borders the city on the eastern side.

Boating, Fishing, water sports, golf, tennis, bicycling, bowling are just a few of the outdoor activities enjoyed year round.

Many famous and well-known men and women stayed during the winter months at the Hotel Ormond, including Henry Flagler's friend, John D. Rockefeller. After a few seasons, however, Rockefeller bought a house across the street from the hotel, now called "The Casements," and lived there until his death in 1937 at the age of 97.  The Casements is now a cultural center for the city.

A few of the most popular attractions in Ormond Beach are:

  • The Casements
  • Rockefeller Gardens
  • Ormond Memorial Art Museum & Gardens
  • The Ormond Scenic Loop known as "The Loop"
  • Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center
  • Ormond Bicentennial Park
  • Andy Romano Beachfront Park
  • Tomoka State Park
  • Fortunato Park
  • Halifax Plantation Golf River Bend Golf Club
  • Oceanside Country Club & Golfcourse
  • Plantation Bay & Golf Community
  • Bulow State Creek Park
  • Tom Renick Park
  • San Jose Fishing Dock
  • Ormond Tomb Park
  • Tomoka Oaks Golf Club
  • Ormond Beach Tennis Club
  • Seabridge Riverfront Park
  • MacDonald House
  • Highbridge Park
  • The Beach

Ormond Beach's nickname, the "Birthplace of Speed", comes from the turn-of-the-century speed records set here on the beach. Today, millions of visitors come each year to witness automobile racing at nearby Daytona International Speedway.

Today, Ormond Beach is a vibrant growing seaside community that has been able to successfully maintain the "small town feel" which is attractive to the residents, and visitors.

Ormond Beach is also home to many restaurants, great shopping, and is a wonderful place to visit or call home.

Thanks for your description of Ormond Beach.  Many Maryland retirees have resolved to move to Florida after our severe winter.
