In 1903, the smooth, hard-packed sands of Ormond Beach became a proving ground for automobile inventors and drivers. These first speed tournaments in the US earned Ormond the title "Birthplace of Speed."
Ormond Beach's rich and diverse history reaches back several centuries. The area was populated by Native Americans and developed by sugar cane planters, ship builders, hoteliers and railroad magnates. It was the vacation home of millionaires and automobile manufacturers in the early 20th century. With the building of the rail line to Ormond in 1886 and the first bridge over the Halifax River in 1887, tourism and residential activities began to flourish. John Anderson and Joseph Price, builders of that first bridge, fulfilled their dream to build a hotel on the beachside. In 1888, the Hotel Ormond opened with 75 rooms. In 1890, railroad magnate Henry Flagler bought the hotel, expanded it, and in 1904 added a railroad bridge across the river to bring guests to the hotel. Anderson and Price continued to manage the hotel during the Flagler era until their deaths in 1911. John D. Rockefeller spent several winters in the hotel until he purchased the Casements across the street in 1918. Rockefeller spent his winters at the Casements until his death in 1937 at age 97. The hotel was demolished in 1992. Known as the "Birthplace of Speed," Ormond Beach is the site of the first timed automobile race on its hard-packed sandy beach in 1903.
Ormond Scenic Loop & Trail (OSLT) is a 30+ mile double loop of roadways traversing some of the most beautiful and diverse natural scenery remaining in all of northeast Florida. There is ready access to the Atlantic Ocean, North Peninsula, Tomoka and Bulow Creek State Parks as well as numerous city and county parks. The roadway view includes unobstructed vistas of two rivers, creeks and marshes, barrier island dunes and beach, and historic dwellings. Visitors seeking a cultural and/or historic experience will find museums and historic public buildings and private homes along the corridor, in Tomoka State Park and in locations a few blocks off the designated roadways. Recreational opportunities abound with numerous parks and trails offering boating, fishing, hiking, swimming, bicycling, beach walking and much more. Vast expanses of water and natural Florida scrub vegetation create beautiful scenic vistas waiting to be photographed. Northern right whales and humpback whales can be seen offshore during migration seasons. Dolphins are a common sight. Loggerhead, green and leatherback turtles use the sandy beaches along A1A for nesting.
