Rockefeller were some of the first famous families to escape bitter winters here on the temperate emerald coast. Our cinnamon colored shorelines played host to the first NASCAR races, affectionately earning us the moniker, “The Birthplace of Speed.” This vibrant culture of indulgence has produced a premier downtown district packed with boutique shoppes, purveyors of fine food, a fresh seafood market, art galleries and more! Ormond offers a plethora of options to cultivate a lifestyle of your choosing. Here you will find ocean and riverfront manors, beach bungalows, luxury condominiums, country estate homes and a variety of gated communities with nearly every major amenity your heart can desire. The options are limitless in this intercoastal oasis.
