The City of Palm Coast does not have any indoor or outdoor malls. What the city does have is a menagerie of charming, independently owned gift shops, antique shops, artist studios, and boutiques. Your best shopping is going to be a 30 mile drive south to Daytona Beach, FL. There you will find outlets, plazas, and a decent size indoor shopping mall with anchors like Macy’s, Dillard’s, and JCPenny.

At the Tanger Outlets in Daytona you will find retailers like Michael Kors, Kate Spade New York, Polo Ralf Lauren, and J Crew. One thing to note is there are not any high end designer brand offerings in the area. The closest place to find these luxury goods would be in Orlando, FL.

Things To Do

The Flagler Auditorium is Flagler County’s premier performing arts center. The 1000 seat venue hosts various professional performances and community performances. These include nationally touring Broadway shows, cultural programs, big bands, symphonies, family theatre, and celebrity entertainment.

City Repertory Theatre is an intimate, innovative, theatrical experience. This theatre offers an alternative to the same-old same-old theatre offerings. They offer unique plays and programs to provoke the mind and spirit and provide great opportunity for serious actors to practice their art.

Beaches – The beaches around Palm Coast are comprised of 19 miles of uncrowded, cinnamon colored sand with a laid back vibe. There are both pet friendly and bonfire friendly areas to enjoy with your four legged friends and family. At Washington Oak Gardens State Park the shore is lined with coquina rock formations making for dramatic pictures of waves crashing up against the rocks. The Flagler Beach Municipal Pier stretches out over 800 feet into the Atlantic Ocean and is a great spot to bird watch. The water color in this area of Florida is typically a darker blue/green to turbid brown not uncommon to other shorelines up and down the east coast of the United States.

Boating – The Intracoastal Waterway that runs through Palm Coast is a very thin stretch of waterway (around 300 foot wide). The shorelines switch back and forth between nice waterfront homes and areas of natural shoreline. In this area of Florida natural shorelines are often marsh-like with tall and vast expanses of aquatic grasses or sandy banks. The iconic mangrove trees with their unique root systems don’t survive this far north along the coast. Just to the north and south, the waterway opens up quite significantly. There is ocean access 12 miles to the north through the Matanzas Inlet, however it can be a very tricky and dangerous inlet. There are no jetty walls lining the inlet so the channels and sand bottom shift often. Some boaters who know the area well do use the inlet and for some the risk is just not worth it and they make the approximate 23 mile run up the Intracoastal to the Saint Augustine Inlet.

Fishing – The best inshore fishing is going to be just to the north and south of this area. The tidal marsh areas and creaks produce a number of good catches including Flounder, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Tarpon, Sheepshead, and others. Similarly the docks and pilings lining the Matanzas River should be targeted. On the offshore side in the Atlantic Ocean, good catches of Cobia, Grouper, Snapper, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and more can be had. Long runs are necessary for targeting certain species and 100 foot depths can be found around 32 miles offshore of Matanzas Inlet. Similarly the ledge is around 60 miles out from the coast as is the Gulf Stream Current.
