Updated: Wednesday, March 25th, 4:00 PM EST
Dear Flagler Visitors,
During this uncertain time, we know one thing – we value all of you; many of whom are our repeat visitors who have been coming to our beaches for years. Like communities all around the world, the people of Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches are working together, making hard but necessary changes, and showing what truly makes this community special – the hearts of our people. We will persevere through this and are optimistic about the future.
We encourage you during this time to stay safe, stay home and when the time is right, we’ll invite you back to #VisitFlagler.
Our hearts and thoughts are with those who have been affected by this. We send our deep appreciation to those in our community, the healthcare industry and first responders who are working on the front lines to mitigate the spread and impact of this virus.
Thank you to everyone who has continued to support our small coastal community. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Amy, Debra, Candi and Annabelle
