The Most Interesting Communities in Florida
Florida has long been a beacon for those who want just a little bit more out of life. It offers everything from some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world to some of the most diverse cityscapes anywhere. This is why it should come as no surprise that Florida houses an incredibly eclectic and interesting group of people.
You can do almost anything in Florida. With the right transportation and a good plan, you can visit immense state parks- and still have time to enjoy an evening partying with some edgy nightlife. There is so much more here than aging retirees and seasonal snow birds. Florida is home to a plethora of endangered species, and has wildlife unlike that of anywhere else in the world.
Many people believe that living on the coast is way too expensive. This is another Florida myth. There's something available here in nearly every price range, and even luxury homes are affordable in the right areas. There are many houses for sale in Port Orange, Florida- which also happens to be a fun mix of people and hobbies. Check out some of these communities that bring a little something more to the standard neighborhood:
This is a fascinating little fishing village near Port St. Joe that has the feel of a small northern coastal town. The locals are famous for their incredible hospitality, and their passion for seafood. In this town you can join them in fishing for the best foods the ocean has to offer. This is a true small town experience, complete with diving for oysters. The locals will help you to cook your freshly caught food, and entertain you with stories. Feel at home while on vacation in this quaint community.
This is a little piece of Scotland in the heart of Florida. Dunedin embraces its heritage while still celebrating all of the best features that Florida has to offer. This town is famous for their annual Scottish celebrations, and authentic foods. Nearby, are what are considered some of the most beautiful beaches in the state. This small town is definitely a win win for anyone looking for an interesting cultural dynamic.
This is one community famous for its ability to entertain. In Gulfport, there are a variety of festivals and community celebrations that take place year round. This has made it a particularly popular attraction for those who enjoy having a community centered activity all of the time.
This is a fairly unremarkable town, but made the list for one of its quirkiest and tiniest attractions. Carrabelle boasts the world's smallest police station. Situated on a street in this small town is a phone booth that doubles as a base for law enforcement. This is also a town known for its ideal RV locations, with plenty of scenic stops along the way.
This town is tiny by any standards, with a last recorded population of less than 500. But, Ona certainly draws a large number of tourists. This is due to the huge replica of a medieval castle that sprawls throughout the swamplands. This castle is an actual piece of art created by the world renowned sculptor, Howard Solomon. The entire castle spans over 12,000 square feet, and currently stands over three stories high. Solomon may continue to add on to his masterpiece in the future. Pictures are difficult due to the exterior- which is covered with aluminum. Not only is this attraction huge, it's also incredibly shiny! The castle now holds other pieces of Solomon's art, and acts as a beacon within the community.

The Spruce Creek Fly-In Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) participated in a three day training conference by the Florida CERT in Central Florida. There were 19 members who went through the rigorous basic training and three members that received additional advanced training.
The participants donate their time and energy to assist their community in the event a disaster occurs and first responders are not immediately available. In addition to basic skills and knowledge, members gained the important understanding of how crucial teamwork, communication and mindfulness are in preparing for emergencies.
Some of the training segments included how to safely extinguish small fires, medical aspects such as triage, treatment and transport. On the final day, a mock disaster was held at the Volusia County Fire Training Center where they put all the skills learned to valuable use.
The residents of Spruce Creek Fly-In are eternally grateful for this group of individuals who are present and ready to step in when the need arises. Little did they know when training concluded in late August, they would be called on to help the Community prepare for hurricane Matthew. Fortunately, we were spared the worst but this team made sure we were prepared on the front end and that we were safe after the fact. We owe this team our thanks and salute them.

Attention Spruce Creek Residents!
From the Desk of Jill Kelly,
Spruce Creek Friends, I have recently jumped feet first into chairing the Spruce Creek Children's Recreation Committee. Some of you may have noticed that it has been inactive for some time, but there is a small group of ladies attempting to change that, with a primary focus on our community. Said differently, activities and events for the children, but not all about the children.
First event on deck: Ribbon Cutting Ceremony @ SC Playground - Tues., Jun 7 (4pm-6pm), to include:
Of course, the playground and other games will be there for the children, but we are also attempting big kid games (volleyball, croquet, corn-hole, ...) to be carried out on the huge lawn there. Will you join me? I am not looking for volunteers or contributions - just smiling participants. Oh, and maybe a Jetmobile if Paul and Susie Holmes are in town!
Tell all your Spruce Creek friends & hope to see you there!
