Both the city of Jacksonville and Orlando, where most of the large businesses are located,are about an hour to an hour and a half drive from Palm Coast. This area is bustling with activity if you like outdoor activities, what is nice about Palm Coast is that it is centrally located to other great areas. St. Augustine is just a half hour drive and is known for its history, and is a wonderful cultural area, Daytona Beach of course is known for the beach, NASCAR, Bike Week, but it also a great art community. Then of course we are not that far from the Orlando area, which of course is Disney, Seaworld, Universal Studios, great concert and sport venues.
Just to give you some perspective, Palm Coast is a just a little bit older than yourself, and is a growing community, and yes home prices are great here due to slow economy, but things are heading in the right direction. We are starting to see more restaurants, shopping and other venues coming to the city.
What I myself like best are the amazing biking and walking trails located throughout the city and into Flagler Beach. If you would like some more information on the area, give me a call/text me.
