Ormond Beach

Ormond Beach has been a favorite winter destination for the rich and famous since the late 1800s, and counts the enigmatic millionaire, John D. Rockefeller, as one of its earliest settlers. To this day, people still flock to this coastal city to enjoy its miles of hard, white sand beaches, particularly in the winter. Over the years, however, the make-up of visitors and residents has greatly diversified and now includes people of various interests and income and age groups.

Ormond Beach is bounded to the east by the Atlantic Ocean and to the west by the Halifax River, which separates the peninsula city from the mainland. Traveling to and from Ormond Beach is remarkably convenient. It is traversed by the major highways, I-95 and I-4, connecting the city to nearby Orlando, Tampa and other major Central Florida areas.
