Palm Coast for a decade was in the 10 fastest growing cities in the nation. It’s population more than doubled from 2000 (32,832) to 75,180 in 2010, and it keeps growing fast.
One of Florida’s newest cities (incorporated 1999), Palm Coast is a Florida paradise – situated on 70 miles of saltwater and freshwater canals and the Intracoastal Waterway and just minutes from pristine Atlantic Ocean beaches. Vibrant lifestyle and the natural environment go hand-in-hand here. The City offers a dozen beautiful parks, 125+ miles of connecting trails and paths for walking/bicycling, abundant fishing and boating, a year-round Running Series, and world-class tennis and golf. Lined with historic oaks, towering pines and indigenous vegetation, Palm Coast’s parks and trails showcase the splendid elegance of the native Florida landscape. Bird-watching is popular at St. Joe Walkway and Linear Park, which are designated as Great Florida Birding & Wildlife Trails, and visitors can spot dolphins and seabirds as they stroll along the Intracoastal at Waterfront Park.
