Ponce Inlet is the southernmost town on the beachside, which is part of Daytona Beach area. It is a quaint town with barely 3,000 residents. Small town with its history going to to 1513, when Ponce de Leon, a Spanish conquistador explored the area.
The two major roads, A1A and Peninsula Drive dead end at the Lighthouse park going from the Intracoastal to the ocean. There is no traffic going south. No industry, no hotels/motels, the only businesses are marinas and waterfront restaurants.
Even though you see children and young people there, the biggest chunk of the population of Ponce Inlet is over 60 years old (26.8%).
Traditionally a wonderful place to retire and enjoy life in a quaint small town and still be steps from all the buzz and activity of Daytona
The most beautiful beaches in the county are here in Ponce Inlet.
If you are not yet retired, this is what you would be thinking of when you come to Ponce Inlet. But by the same token, it is a wonderful place for young people to raise the family.
This is nature lovers’ paradise.
