Ormond Beach, FL: A Small Piece of Paradise


Within Volusia County, Florida, the small community of Ormond Beach claims the highest standard of living. Since its founding, the town has always been a Mecca for those who were looking for the good things in life.

Founded in the late 1800's, the town was built on the foundation of the rich and famous of the times. Around the turn of the century, notables such as the Rockefellers, the Vanderbilts and the Asters made Ormond Beach their winter getaways.

The first real hotel, The Ormond, became popular not only with the rich but also with creative types; writers and artists have long flocked to the area because of its natural beauty.The town boomed in the 1920s, especially with the rich that the railroad relocated the tracks so that the hotel could have its own platform.

John D. Rockefeller became so enamored with the area; he built the Casements, his winter home. Today it serves as a cultural anchor for all of Ormond Beach.

The town, while upscale and with a typically older population, still boasts several elementary and middle schools, a full array of shopping and entertainment, a municipal airport, a nearby state park and of course the Atlantic Ocean beachfront.

The medical facilities offered in either town or the surrounding area covers nearly every specialization of medicine. The unemployment rate is one of the lowest in the state and the crime rate is well below the national average.

A perfect bedroom community to Daytona Beach, the town offers everything a family or a retiree could possibly want. Between the beaches, the parks and the golf courses, Ormond Beach offers everything to meet your recreational wants or needs. In addition, of course, the nearby Daytona Speedway is always an attraction.

Near perfect weather year round guarantees the opportunity to take advantage of everything the community has to offer.

Move to Ormond Beach and enjoy life!
