Trying to get out of the rat race that south florida has become. I was born and raised in Miami and had always loved it here. The beaches, the Keys, So. Beach... Had a daughter last year and my perspective has changed. I'm looking for a slower pace and to be able to afford a home closer to the shore. Any suggestions of which neighborhoods are best for a young family. I am a chiropractor and will be setting up my practice there, so any help on where to start my search would be invaluable.

With the exception of some areas off South Nova Road & US 1, pretty much all of Ormond is very nice. SR 40 (Granada Blvd.) is the main drag east & west. US 1 around the I-95 interchange and for a few miles south gets EXTREMELY congested during Bike Week (10 days around the 1st of March) & Biketoberfest (usually the 3rd week of October.)

Most of the homes beachside are older the closer you get around Granada and there are some newer neighborhhoods west of 95. Lots of realtors everywhere in Florida, but Adams-Cameron has been there forever, so they might be the best help.

I grew up there, but live about 20 miles north now. Glad to help with any questions.

Default Ormond

I also visited Ormond Beach and liked it. There are many newer subdivisions 10-15 miles inland.

There is also a town south called New Smyrna beach which is south of Daytona, I hear its more upper class which might be beneficial for your business. Ormond is North of Daytona. Daytona area seemed a little run down.

good luck
