To the OP, if you don't like Yankees and don't like hearing about how "everything is better up nawth", DO NOT move to Palm Coast. They might as well call it New Jersey/York South.

Don't forget there's a lot of So. Fla. folks that moved up here to get away from the rat race down there. There's a fan club that meets at HighJackers. GO DOLPHINS!!!!

Cool Where to live??

I just finished graduate school and I am thinking about taking a job in Ormond Beach. I think that I would rather live in Palm Coast for now because it is closer to St. Augustine and it seems like a nice area. Can someone give me a heads up on where NOT to live in Palm Coast. I am not sure that I want to live there permanently so I will rent at first. All this talk about trucks on lawns and littering! I promise I'll be good~

If you're going to work in Ormond you may want to stay on the south side of Palm Coast so you'll save on gas and time or at least be near US 1 and you can get to Ormond that way if you don't want to go I-95. Seminole Woods and Cypress Knoll are both nice areas. Lots of duplexes for rent all around. If you want to be right near the beach you could try for a rental in Flagler Beach. Get a map of Palm Coast area so you can see all the access roads that can get you to Ormond easiest. Your best bet is to come here, look around and explore to get a feel for the area. Just make sure you have a job in place first. Good Luck.

Parts of the "K" section (all the streets begin with "K",) Quail Hollow, and the "S" section, Seminole Woods, are very close to US 1, a 15 minute straight shot to Ormond. Both are pretty well kept neighborhoods, they're nowhere near the old main area of Palm Coast. About 10 minutes to the new town center. As far as living in Flagler Beach, unless you're working beachside in Ormond, add another 10 miles to your commute, and when the snowbirds are here, it'll seem like 50!

Default Where to live if working at Flaggler Hospital

Greetings All

I have read through your post and have quite a bit of information. Since I am not sure of the geographics...

I will be working at Flaggler Hospital in Palm Coast. I am single, not much of a bar fly but will want to have a life and enjoy meeting people and developing friendships.

Any guidance would be appreciated

Smile Thinking about moving to Palm Coast

My husband and I are thinking about moving to PC we are in our sixties and need medical and shopping not too far away. We moved from Miami 2 yrs ago to Tenn and are not happy living in the country everything is too far away. The area is beautiful for everyone that's want to moved here but, get prepared too drive a distant for everything. Pls can anyone help us to find a good area, home around 170,000 - should we looked in FLagler Bch too? We are from MIami for 46yrs. so this was a big adjustment for us. I just register so I am not sure I am doing this right. Thanks, Tenn Sr.

I think you'll find living anywhere in Palm Coast is close to shopping. This is a small county and we have several areas for shopping.

The new Town Center is going in on the south end (SR 100 and Belle Terre) of PC so if that is extremely important you may want to check out areas down that way.

Wal Mart, Home Depot, Lowe's is more central near Palm Coast Pkwy and Cypress Point Rd. If you can get a local map that would be your best bet for finding this information. You can contact the Chamber of Commerce and I believe they will send you a map for free.

You should be able to find a home in your price range now that prices have come down. Our neighbor who had been a renter for 3 yrs found one for $190k. The bargains are out there. Hope this has helped and good luck.

The E, S, U, Z, K sections are all good neighborhoods near Rt 100 where all the new stores are going in. Also the hospital is on Rt. 100, and many doctor offices. Loads of good deals right now in the real estate market, even the investors are coming back and buying.
