Not nearly as well-known on as Miami or Orlando, Palm Coast is one of Florida’s best kept secrets, but it’s only a matter of time before this secret gets out! Rich in history and featuring things to do for people of all interests and ages, Palm Coast is a can’t-miss location in Florida, whether you’re on vacation or looking for the perfect place to call home. And that’s why we choose to do business in this amazing city.
Here’s a Brief History of Palm Coast
A Modern City
Founded on October 29th, 1970, Palm Coast’s first building was, appropriately enough, a welcome center. It was uniquely positioned to showcase the best of what Palm Coast had to offer and featured a massive 64-foot high observation tower overlooking lakes, trails, and the gorgeous surrounding forest.
Expanding quickly as the headquarters for the international communications firm ITT, Palm Coast has continued to grow, nearly doubling between 2000 and 2010. Today, the community takes great pride in offering world-class schools, golf courses, and local businesses.
A Great Place to Call Home
Located about a 30-minute drive from Daytona Beach, Palm Coast has quickly become one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States. Thanks to its high property values and wealth of activities to keep residents busy, Palm Coast continues to grow at a rapid pace, attracting residents from other large Florida cities.
Palm Coast is especially known for their accessible health care options, with Advent Health (formerly Florida Hospital) of Flagler County in full operation in the neighboring town of Bunnell. Advent Health has over 90 rooms that are run not-for-profit, an amenity that has been warmly welcomed by residents.
Palm Coast also offers a virtually endless variety of shops, local markets, outlets, and department stores, making it a perfect place to live and work while also having access to the year-round beautiful weather.
A Gateway to the Great Outdoors
Palm Coast is also home to TIAA Bank Field, which the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars call home. Besides that, the city also has a variety of other sports stadiums and recreation areas, making it the perfect place for any sports enthusiast to visit or live permanently.
Because of Palm Coast’s central location, many other popular destinations are only a quick drive away, making it a perfect hub to explore other areas of Florida when the occasion calls for it. Since it’s a mere stone’s throw away from the Atlantic, there’s plenty to do and see for those who love to explore the open waters as well.
