Are you predicting that the next chapter in your family’s life is one filled with Florida sunshine? If you’re already considering moving to Daytona Beach Florida or anywhere else in the surrounding Volusia County area, know that you’ve stumbled on an amazing community packed with excitement and new opportunities at every turn. But what is it that makes this area so special for its residents – and specifically, for the many families that have chosen to live and raise kids in the area? Read on for a few highlights to look forward to from your trusted Daytona Beach realtors!
The Perfect Location
Volusia County is located in an incredibly convenient location. Making your home here means close access to the oceanfront – especially in seaside communities like Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, and New Smyrna Beach. But, while you’re making your family beach days closer than ever, you’re also making your home base in a great location not far from plenty of Florida’s bigger attractions. Orlando theme parks like Disney and Universal can be a convenient day or weekend trip, as well as other exciting and enriching spots like the Kennedy Space Center.
Even Volusia County itself blends the relaxing, small-town feel of this coastal paradise with the amenities of a larger city. For example, you might enjoy swinging by the local farmers’ market or taking a stroll through a quiet local park, then visiting Daytona Beach’s Hard Rock Hotel for live music or catching a thrilling racing event at the Daytona International Speedway.
So Many Community Activities
Volusia County is always abuzz with activities to do and events to enjoy. You’ll find fun festivals and fairs nearly year-round. You might enjoy rides, meet animals, and try delicious food at Deland’s Volusia County Fair. Or, you can stop by Ormond Beach Celtic Festival, hearing live music, seeing sheep herding, trying traditional food, and more. If that’s not quite your family’s speed, there’s also plenty of car shows – like at New Smyrna Beach’s Canal Street Cruise In.
Plus, plenty of other local spots throughout the county are packed with fun activities – like Daytona Beach’s Museum of Arts & Sciences, which offers free admission to residents on the first Tuesday of every month.
Get In Touch with Nature
With warm temperatures year-round and an escape from the brutal northern wintertime, exploring the amazing natural world around Volusia County couldn’t be easier. It’s a great opportunity to usher your family into a new, active, motivating outdoor lifestyle. Your crew might enjoy a family trip biking along the coastline or on plenty of local bike paths, sharing kayak rentals along a river, hiking in local parks, or even trying new activities like stand up paddleboarding. Plus, learning about local nature and wildlife can be an amazing educational experience for kids. Maybe that means a visit to local state parks – like Ormond Beach’s Tomoka State Park. It could also mean a fun manatee or dolphin boat tour, or a visit to an educational discovery center. Try the Marine Discovery Center in New Smyrna Beach or Deland’s Reptile Discovery Center – both great choices for curious kids!
For families more than anyone, there’s a lot to love about putting down roots in Volusia County.
