Flagler County, celebrating it's 90th birthday in 2007, was named for Henry Morrison Flagler, a famous railroad builder who built the Florida East Coast Railway.
Nestled between Daytona Beach and historic St. Augustine, Flagler County is a well preserved piece of "old Florida". Steeped in a rich history there are corners of Flagler were it seems that time has been forgotten. Slow moving creeks shaded in a canopy of trees, salt marshes harboring birds and sea life and 19 miles of beaches with quaint beachside communities where you can still find solitude, all preserved for your enjoyment. If it is leisure activities you love, they are in abundance here in Flagler from canoeing, hiking, bird watching, tennis, bike riding, fresh and salt-water fishing and an amazing 165 holes of golf. Whether you choose to drink in the natural surroundings, surrender to the serenity of our beaches or enjoy a round of golf, it is time to move on the quiet side of Florida.
Palm Coast, chartered in 1999, lives in harmony with nature and is a paradise set in a forest. Lush native trees and plants along the parkways are reminiscent of "old Florida". This charming city near the sea, is known for its 23 miles of saltwater canals and 46 miles of fresh water canals, the beautiful Intracoastal canal, parks and tree canopied paths which beckon with every breeze.
