As a native of this area, I feel specially qualified and privileged to blog about all of Volusia County. But I have chosen to make my home in Port Orange.
The motto for Port Orange, FL is "Unique by choice, not by chance". That's the perfect theme for this beautiful, friendly city.
Located just 5 miles south of Daytona Beach, FL, we have the perfect proximity to special events, but are not in the thick of things when we're ready to get away.
If you're considering moving to Port Orange, we have the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway, the Atlantic Ocean and many new housing developments, as well as older homes if you like something more traditional.
The schools in Port Orange are top notch. My daughter is now a senior at Spruce High School and has excelled there over the last 3 years. Prior to that she was a member of the first class to graduate from Creekside Middle School since it opened it's doors in 2001.
Port Orange is a popular destination for all ages, since we have theaters, restaurants, doctor's offices, pharmacies, banks, a hospital, churches, shopping, and even a Go-Cart track, all within close proximity to our homes. And let's not forget, unless you choose a house or condo directly on the beach, the Atlantic Ocean and I-95 are still just minutes away.
I would highly recommend Port Orange to anyone seeking Florida's warm, sunny climate and a friendly, small-town community.
