Hammock Beach Aerial
PALM COAST, Fla. - In celebration of Flagler County’s 100th anniversary and the countdown to summer, Hammock Beach Resort – northeast Florida's premier oceanfront destination – announces 100 Days of Summer . Running through the 100 days between Memorial Day to Labor Day, the family-friendly getaway package provides visitors with the perfect escape to one of Florida’s few remaining strips of unspoiled coastline. Available now through September, the offer includes 25% off room rate and a $100 resort credit to use toward experiences such as recreation, dining, spa and retail during their stay.
A destination loved by all generations, the history of Flagler County stems back to 1917 when residents began the discussion of a district of their own – the rapid development called for the formation of a government and a name for this new region. Due to his entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to Florida’s transportation advancements, the new county was named after Henry Flagler, who believed that Florida had the potential to attract a large number of tourists. Today, Flagler County’s old Florida charm, affordable entertainment and eco-friendliness continue to attract tourists to the area.
Flagler County is home to 45 parks and 125 miles of biking and hiking trails. For those seeking to explore trails such as the Graham Swamp Preserve Trail, named for Florida folk singer Gamble Rodgers, renting a bicycle from Hammock Beach Resort’s recreation center is the perfect option. Guests can continue their bicycle tour and head to the Mala Compra Plantation, a historic archaeological site originally part of northeast Florida’s largest plantation system, containing remains and rare evidence of the early 19th century, 800-acre costal plantation.
Florida’s old and new traditions continue colliding at Marineland – the world’s first ‘oceanarium’ that invites visitors to explore marine mammals’ social behaviors and learn the importance of research and conservation. Guests can get a true taste of Flagler, and its array of flavors, by joining the local foodies at some of the county’s hottest dining spots. Accessible by water, Captain’s BBQ is a staple of the area and the perfect stop for all who appreciate true southern, slow cooked and smoked BBQ. For those interested in getting a taste of the sea, the resort’s Italian-inspired restaurant, Delfinos, offers a variety of ocean fresh seafood selections.
Hammock Beach Resort is dedicated to providing families ways to create unforgettable memories that will last a century. The resort’s 100 Days of Summer package, commemorating Flagler County’s 100th year, gives way for guests to explore the county’s beauty and history through a number of activities, such as surfing lessons, kayaking and cycling. Children can join the “Kids Crew,” an exclusive club offering a variety of entertainment, and take part in scavenger hunts and beach games. All guests can experience the same beautiful Florida sunshine that drew Mr. Flagler to the state by playing a round of championship golf on the Conservatory Course, splashing around at one of the three pools or 6.5 acre multi-level water complex, or while collecting seashells to the sound of crashing waves.
Situated just south of historic St. Augustine, the all-suite Hammock Beach Resort delivers an unspoiled haven overlooking two miles of pristine Atlantic shoreline. Presenting true luxury nestled among nature, the resort offers an upscale escape surrounded by scenes of Old Florida, with more than 300 spacious accommodations, including a 12-story tower of redesigned luxury suites. The amenity-rich oasis offers storybook experiences with two highly renowned and ranked golf courses designed by legends Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson, a 10,000-square-foot ocean-inspired spa and fitness center, multiple restaurants and bars, a multi-level pool complex with adult and children areas and miles of coquina-laden coastline.
