There are many things about Palm Coast that I enjoy! The number one thing I enjoy about Palm Coast is the beach! Flagler beach is absolutely beautiful and has some many delicious restaurants and bars right on the beach! Although Palm Coast is small, with a constant growing population, Palm Coast is growing into a booming city with more and more to offer. Palm Coast is expanding, bringing in new company's and restaurants, which is also bringing more jobs into the cities community!

Palm Coast is a lovely place to live. The public schools are all highly rated with wonderful teachers and administration, and there are plenty of shopping opportunities and family friendly activities. It's a very safe environment with many healthy lifestyle options. However, there isn't a wide range of job opportunities, so it's best to live here while commuting somewhere else to work. All around, a pretty great place to live!
I've enjoyed living in Palm Coast for 16 years now. I live in a quiet section of well maintained homes. I have wonderful neighbors. The beach is 10 minutes away and is never crowded. St. Augustine to the north and Daytona Beach to the south. There is never lack of launch sites for my fishing kayak and Redfish is my target. We are also an area that hasn't experienced redtide!
