Very serene. Beautiful beaches! - 12/2/2019

Great place with some faults (overdevelopment) - 8/4/2019
If you want a fairly affordable place to live near or by the beach, this is it. If you like a quieter lifestyle, Ormond will suit you. Tomoka State Park is right here and then there is the lovely “Loop” and other parks with historic structures (remnants of old sugar mills). We live in a community built in the 70s. People have done a fabulous job redoing the houses...no cookie cutters here. And it’s one of the few communities we have lived where our neighbors have become our friends.
The Main Street/downtown Ormond area is historic and cute and offers a number of independently owned restaurants. There are regular “art walks,” new little shops and restaurants popping up here and there.
And the beach is gorgeous on this part of the Atlantic coast.
My problem with the area is that people have found out about it and it is being overdeveloped while wildlife is being chased out. I do like that we have a new Lucky’s Market, and we’re getting an Aldi, and one of the Read More

Rotten place to live - 3/8/2019
Bike week 2019 has just started. I have lived here for 3 years. There is nothing here except tons of traffic, tract housing, lousy restaurants, no culture, substandard shopping, ridiculous fees and taxes, and almost nothing to do except bum around the dirty beach. If you are a professional person, or you are used to the culture and amenities of a normal city or suburb, you will hate this place like I do. Lots of rude rednecks here too. Read More

Disappointing - 5/2/2014
2014 April: Moved here about 5 years ago as part of a job transfer. At first, I was impressed by the sunshine and the quiet, laid back lifestyle. If that is what you are looking for, you will probably be satisfied living here. After a short time, this becomes a boring place to live. There is practically no culture, no arts, museums, concert/music venues, etc. There are a few local museums, but they are not impressive. The local concert venue attracts mainly old, long obsolete talent, and just a few events each year.

The big events here are Bike Week, Biketoberfest, and NASCAR races. If you like car racing and motorcycles, this is the place for you. If not, you will grow to dread these events like most of the residents here.

This is mainly a beach resort and vacation town beachside. There is a strange combination of expensive waterfront properties, condos of variable quality ( mostly cheap ), run-down beach cottage neighborhoods (mostly short term rentals), Read More

The Three R's of Central Floida: Retirees, Redneck - 1/27/2008
Ormond Beach is a bit of a jewel in a backward area. Unfortunately, the entertainment around here centers on Bike Week, Biketoberfest, Speed Week, and Spring Break. In between those illustrious events it can be very nice living here. The cost of living is reasonable, the schools are adequate (but shop around and buy where your kids will go to the best Elementary and Middle schools, students may attend any high school they wish), crime is low, and the environment is very clean (except for the noise and trash generated by the events mentioned earlier). Lots of retirees, so simple things like grocery shopping becomes a lesson in patience. Not much canned entertainment other than one movie theater, but the outdoors is available year round for biking, fishing, kayaking, and is very pleasant from mid-October through Read More
