"In the Shadow of Daytona" Top 5 Page for this destination Ormond Beach by grandmaR

Ormond Beach Travel Guide: 70 reviews and 185 photos

When I was 16, we came to Florida to the Daytona area, but we actually spent the time at Ormond Beach which was cheaper. There was a terrific amount of surf because (although we didn't know it), there was a hurricane offshore

When we were traveling on our boat, I noted Ormond Beach mainly as an indication that we are getting closer to Daytona where we can tied up to a marina, or anchor in the Halifax River.

In 2005, we came and stayed in a condo on Ormond Beach and toured around the area. I got to like the place very much, although it was much too cold to swim. The travelogue has the trip report, plus some photos of The Casements.

    Very interesting. There is an Ormond Beach here in CA too, a wetland preserve. Thank you. KM
