Palm Coast is the largest city in Flagler County, FL located 25 miles south of St. Augustine, 25 miles north of Daytona Beach, and halfway between Orlando and Jacksonville.
Originally developed in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s by ITT Community Development Coroporation, Palm Coast was the largest planned unit development ever created in Florida. ITT purchased large tracts of land in a virtually untouched area of Florida, and constructed a 500-mile infrastructure of roads, utilities, and sewer lines that laid the groundwork for this environmentally conscious community. Canals connecting to the Intracoastal Waterway were dredged, with the idea that someday residents would utilize these canals to be able to travel by water from their homes to the Intracoastal and beyond.
The city of Palm Coast was incorporated on December 31, 1999 and had an estimated population of 29,360 at that time. Palm Coast was officially designated the “fastest growing metropolitan area” in the country by the U.S. Census Bureau for the decade of 2000-2010, when it’s population more than doubled. As of the 2010 census, the population of Palm Coast was 75,180.
Today, Palm Coast is a thriving coastal community known for its easy going lifestyle, 13 beautiful parks, 125+ miles of connecting trails and paths for walking/bicycling, abundant fishing and boating, world-class golf and tennis, a brand new hospital and health care facilities, and attractive real estate opportunities.
Palm Coast’s unique location on the upper east coast of Florida, coupled with prevailing winds makes hurricanes less frequent than other parts of Florida. The city is located within 100 miles of four international airports- Orlando International (MCO), Orlando Sanford (SFB), Jacksonville (JAX), and Daytona Beach (DAB).
