Things to do

Culture vultures flock to Ormond-by-the-Sea

Life in Ormond-by-the-Sea doesn't always revolve around the beach, as there are plenty of cultural attractions too. A highlight is John D. Rockefeller's summer residence, The Casements. It offers free guided tours around the house and the beautiful landscaped gardens, and there's a small gift shop. The gardens at the Ormond Memorial Art Museum are also worth a visit. Inside sees changing exhibitions of local Floridian artists. While the MacDonald House Museum is a step back in time as you explore the Queen Anne-style house built in 1903.


Sun, sea and sugar-soft sands? It can only be Ormond-by-the-Sea

Famous for the miles and miles of sugar-sand beaches, Ormond-by-the-Sea has an easy, laid-back charm. While the resort town lacks the glitzy, neon-lit attractions of Daytona Beach, it has more of a family-friendly vibe. Many Ormond-by-the-Sea vacation rentals are so close to the beach you'll feel the sand between your toes from the moment you wake up. A must for water enthusiasts, it's great for swimming, surfing and sailing, and is also a hotspot for sport fishing and golf. After dark, head down to one of the few bars and restaurants along the beachfront and sample a local craft beer.


Summer often sees a stormin' Ormond

Ormond-by-the-Sea is one of those blissful Floridian destinations which is pretty much drenched in tropical sunshine 365 days a year. The busiest times to visit is during the long, hot summer when Ormond-by-the-Sea vacation rentals get snapped up in advance. However, it's also hurricane season, so be prepared for rain and high winds on occasion. Spring is another popular time to visit, when the temperatures are still in the mid-70s and 80 degrees and the beaches are quiet. The coolest months are December and January, but it's still a palatable 70 degrees, so leave the hats and scarves at home.
