Just north of Daytona Beach along Florida’s Atlantic Coast, Ormond Beach offers a first-class resort experience without sacrificing its small-town grace. One of its earliest settlers was millionaire John. D. Rockefeller, and Ormond Beach still provides visitors with elegant relaxation – though, now, it also allows easy access to busier nearby destinations such as next-door neighbor Daytona Beach or, just more than an hour away, Orlando. Bordered by the Tomoka River on the west, the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Ormond Beach is an ideal location for a myriad of water activities. Visitors can also enjoy a variety of cultural and recreational events offered throughout the year – and the pleasures of its historic downtown along Granada Boulevard.
