Interstate I-95 enters Florida above Jacksonville and runs south through St. Augustine continuing into Flagler County, through Daytona Beach, ending in Miami. A1A, a longtime favorite of coastal travelers, is the scenic route that parallels the shoreline. State Route 100 carries east-west traffic from I-95 to A1A at Flagler Beach. Flagler County is bordered by St. John’s, Volusia, and Putnam Counties.

Named for Henry Morrison Flagler, who pioneered Florida’s agricultural and tourism boom, Flagler County is recognized for its large natural state park land reserves, twenty-six miles of beautiful shoreline, and prudent efforts to maintain the natural beauty of the Hammock along A1A. The county has been awarded the Florida Greenbelt recognition for the preservation of the large oak trees and natural habitats along A1A. Commercial development has been restricted to minimize impact on the environment. Since 1970, Flagler County has grown to a population of over 50,000. Flagler County was named the fastest growing community for the decade of the 1980’s. Most residents of Flagler County are accustomed to a lifestyle of abundant recreational activities, miles of natural beauty, and living expenses below the national average.

Flagler Beach is an old seaside town with modern conveniences. The fishing pier has long been popular with local anglers, while attractive shops and seaside cafés bring the community together. Our municipal buildings are located in Bunnell; west of Bunnell is the gateway to agriculture. Farming still plays a vital role in Flagler County’s economy.

Visitors come to get away from city life and enjoy the quiet friendliness of our community. After exploring the natural wonders of bird and plant life, or watching a sunset while dolphin frolic off shore, our many visitors come back to stay and make Flagler County their home.
