Port Orange Florida is located south of South Daytona and is famous for it's great fishing for snook. You will also find plenty of blue crabs, shrimp, stingrays, horseshoe crabs, seagulls, and cranes as you pass by the islands along the Halifax River.
Established in 1867 on the banks of the Halifax River, Port Orange as a community has a long and proud history. It retained a resort-like character and a relatively stable population for well over a century. Not until the mid 1970’s when Dunlawton Avenue was extended from the FEC railroad to Interstate 95, did Port Orange begin to blossom into the large metropolitan community that it is today with a population over 50,000. Careful planning initiatives have yielded rather than compromised - beauty and opportunity. A mere walk, bike ride, or drive through our community reveals its uniqueness and that our residents are part of a distinct and very proud family. This family, which we call Port Orange, is made up of some 150 distinct "neighborhoods". They are the core of this community, making it a great place in which to live, learn, work, and play. Because of the City’s highly regarded development approach, an investment in Port Orange real estate is a secure investment. Port Orange is a community characterized by a stable and successful business climate which develops, nurtures, and embraces quality businesses. And so today, as we celebrate over 135 years as a community, we are proud to call Port Orange Florida "our home".
