City of Ormond Beach, Florida

Named after sea captain James Ormond I, Ormond Beach is a beautiful, beachy escape for those who want to avoid the busier tourist areas of Florida. John D Rockefeller lived here in a hotel in 1914 and then built an estate called The Casements. Today, it is a cultural center and the communities most loved historical structure. It's also famed for some of the first timed automobile races, giving it the nickname, "The Birthplace of Speed."

The Addison Blockhouse Historic State Park is home to an historic 19th century plantation that once flourished from 1816 to 1836 until it was burned in the Seminole wars. The Addison Blockhouse lies on the west side of the Tomoka River and is one of the most worthwhile sights in Volusia County.

Bulow Creek State Park is home to one of the largest live oak trees in the South. For over 400 years, it has stood silent to humankind's activities. There are trails where visitors can walk or run. Most often, wildlife will be near the edge of the wooded areas. Animals that are most commonly seen are white tailed deer, barred owls, and raccoons, among others. The Bulow Woods Trail is nearly seven miles long and leads the way to Bulow Plantation Ruins Historic Site Park. Pavilions stand on the grounds for guests to have picnics and restroom facilities are available for those who need them.

If you're looking for an unforgettable natural escape, look no further! Witness the breathtaking hammocks, flatwoods, marshes, swamps, and much more as you paddle board along the blackwater creek of Haw Creek Preserve all the way to Crescent Lake. Try to spot the native wildlife on your tour, and see why anglers call the swamps a prime fishing location. You can also help employees fulfill the Florida State Parks' mission and learn about the park's fascinating history and origin during your stay, but don't forget to keep an eye out for the moss hung cypress trees. They're quite the tourist attraction.
