The cities of Flagler County offer visitors a taste of old and new Florida and residents a quality of life that cannot be surpassed.
Beverly Beach is small enough in Flagler County that if you are driving too fast on A1A along the ocean, you might just miss it. Located between the sand dunes of the Atlantic and the currents of the Intracostal Waterway, the town is just one mile long and one mile wide, but definitely worth a look.
County seat Bunnell was incorporated in 1913, but has come a long way from its humble beginnings. From 2005 to 2007 Bunnell has annexed more than 92,000 acres of land, increasing its size from 4 square miles to approximately 141 square miles and making Bunnell one of the largest cities in Florida. This quaint city holds many of the historic treasures of Flagler County within its city limits.
Flagler Beach is located on Florida's east coast between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine and is home to more than 5,520 residents. Since its incorporation in April 1925, Flagler Beach has grown from a sleepy fishing village to a unique seaside community while retaining much of its original charm. It is home to six miles of uncrowded beaches, many great fishing spots including the Flagler Beach Municipal Pier, restaurants with oceanfront dining, gift shops and a whole host of recreational facilitites.
The Hammock is a delightful meandering portion of A1A. Its northern gateway is the small town of Marineland that holds the Marineland Dolphin Adventure. Also found in Marineland is what some call our ‘gateway harbor’ Marineland Marina, and the University of Florida Whitney Marine Laboratory. The Hammock not only contains scenic, recreational and historic gems, it is home to a number of art galleries and an array of hotel and motel accommodations and restaurants to suit many tastes.
Marineland's community seeks to expand its permanent population while emphasizing its strengths in research, education and tourism. Surrounded by 10,000 acres of picturesque public land, the town offers a leading world-renowned laboratory of ecological research and interactive adventures with dolphins for almost all ages, all in the middle of an amazing estuarine system that cleans the water and shelters young fish and other marine life.
Palm Coast is situated on 26 miles of saltwater canals and 53 miles of freshwater canals and steps away from the Intracoastal Waterway ad the pristine Atlantic Ocean beaches. People move to this small vibrant city to enhance their quality of life in a thriving, peaceful environment. What began as a modest planned community developed by ITT Corporation in the 1970s has blossomed into a flourishing destination for visitors looking for magnificent hiking/biking trails, sporting events, world-class golf and tennis.
