About Ormond Beach
This Florida beach tends to be overlooked by beach-going vacationers because of Daytona Beach, Ormond’s more famous counterpart to the south. Really, though, there’s not much of a difference between these two beaches except that one will be packed with people while one will not. Ormond has other benefits, too, such as its home to a number of national parks like Tomoka State Park, North Peninsula State Park, and Bulow Creek State Park.
Paint and Party
Masterpiece Mixers is a lovely art studio and school, catering to all levels of experience. All materials are supplied by the company—paints, canvas, brushes, etc—all you have to do is bring some clothes you don’t mind messing up, food and drinks, and your sense of creativity. Professional instructors are on hand to help you create something you’ll be proud of. Why bring home a chintzy souvenir when you can bring home something you made yourself? There are classes just for adults and just for kids, but the mixed classes are much more fulfilling and entertaining. Show up a half hour early to stake your spot—spaces fill up in a hurry.

Scenic Loop and Trail
A car tour is a car tour except in this case. The Ormond Loop is talked about far and wide as the best snap-drive of Florida you’ll experience because of the diverse landscape, ease to the oceans and rivers, and the historic sites along the drive. It might not seem like much fun, sitting is a car just to see some scenery, but this thirty mile loop of road might surprise you. We suggest downloading the map from their website so that you can find all the points of interest. Be sure to stop by The Casements, former home of John D. Rockefeller.
