Known for its top of the line golfing and beautiful vast beaches, Palm Coast, FL is the perfect relaxing beach escape. Nestled alongside the Atlantic Ocean, Palm Coast, Florida, is home to a number of great parks, freshwater lakes and canals, saltwater canals, tennis courts, golf courses, and fine dining opportunities.
Take a bike ride along the Atlantic coast and truly immerse yourself in the area's beauty. While Palm Coast's beaches, golf, and water activities are its biggest draw, there are also fun activities in downtown Palm Coast. After a day of sun and sand, head to downtown Palm Coast at night and enjoy its quaint shops and great dining.
The next morning, watch the sunrise over the blue Atlantic with your morning coffee in hand from your vacation rental's private balcony. With a full kitchen and open patio, family barbeques are easy. Spend your day fishing along the coast, and then retreat home to your rental at night to grill the day's catch outdoors.
Here are a few additional suggestions to help you plan your trip:
-Spend a day shopping at the local Farmer's Market: Located at Veterans Park, the market is open every Friday, and offers a range of goods including fresh farm vegetables, flowers, plants, fresh fruit, and homemade desserts.
-Visit the Flagler Beach Historical Museum: This museum focuses on the history of Flagler Beach and how life use to be in Florida, showcased through antiques, old newspapers, photographs, and memorabilia from the early 1900's.
-Play a round of golf: The Ocean Hammock Golf Club and The Cypress Course at Grand Club are two of the best Palm Coast golf courses. Surrounded by woodlands, beautiful lakes, wetlands, and unique wildlife, The Cypress Course offers both great golf and stunning scenery.
-See a regatta: Watch an exciting boat race sponsored by the Palm Coast Yacht Club. Check the calendar for other club-sponsored seasonal events and activities.
-Take a dinner cruise: Experience gourmet dining and live entertainment from the deck of beautiful sailboat. Raise a glass while watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean.
-Take a surfing lesson: Find out why those surfers seem to be having so much fun. Palm Coast offers several excellent surf schools with patient instructors who help you get up on a board and into the waves.
The best way to experience Palm Coast is by staying in a private rental home with all the luxury amenities you need to host your family and friends. It's easy to find a Palm Coast beach condo a few steps from your favorite activities. If you need space for a large gathering, find an elegant vacation villa with multiple rooms and balconies overlooking the ocean. While you're visiting, schedule some time to explore other beautiful Florida destinations like Anna Maria Island, Fort Myers, and Key West.
