This morning we went to the Fountain of Youth, which is a Spanish dig site. It was home to the first white settlement in America.
1. A musket firing
2. The planetarium (to show how early explorers navigated)
3. A canon firing (it was loud)
4. The Fountain of Youth spring (it tasted sulphuric)
5. A native Indian village (an old Indian burial site)
6. Mission de Numbers (the earliest ...
We had a sleep in and then went out to the Fountain of Youth which is where America was first settled. We went and saw how to work a musket. After that we saw a canon. It was very loud when it was fired. We saw some shelters of some Indians that once lived here.
Today we went on a Segway Tour.
1. Flagler College (the first hotel that had electricity)
2. A cathedral (it had a pipe organ with the most pipes in the world)
3. A popsicle shop (it had home made popsicles that were delicious)
4. A house on fire (it nearly took the chocolate shop!!!)
After lunch went to a animal rescue and rehabilitation park for exotic ...
We went on segway tour. You were meant to be 12 to go on but the man let me go on after he gave me a little test. It was easy to balance on but hard to get off and on because it felt like you could trip over. We rode around the old buildings. There was one that was on fire and it had just been built. There was the Flagler College which was the first hotel and a very big old church which had fancy paintings and stained glass ...
Oh, it is so good to be back in the big comfortable bed again! Slept like a baby.
Poots, that's another story. Since arriving home, she has taken up homesteading behind the sofa in the living room. And she ain't comin' out! Okay she goes to the sun porch to take a dive into the litter box, but that's all. No socializing, none. Well, maybe she'll get used to this new old new life.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hammock Beach Resort Palm Coast
Awsome Place To Stay
One of the best places my family and I have ever stayed. The pools were great and staff was helpful and kind. The 3 bedroom condos were beautiful.
Beautiful scenery and congenial staff, however there was some serious flaws. Apparently when they built the hotel they did not bother to put in a water treatment system....and they run off of a well. So, spa tubs are great if you like bathing in water the color of tea that reeks of sulfur. I suppose this may be why the pools are overloaded with chlorine. Between the pool and the shower, my hair was fried! When we booked our room we were told we would have a full kitchen with a private bedroom. Wrong!!! Our kitchen was in a closet and the room was studio. No icemaker in the kitchen so we were told to trek to the main lobby and request it at the bar. For $250 a night I expect more than this. The other closet boasted a hot water heater and ac unit that kicked in noisily every few minutes. Feather/down pillows and blankets were provided for our comfort...too bad we couldn't get enough peace to sleep. Visited the hotel's new upscale restaurant. I suggest that, if you are indeed a culinary, save your money and wait until you can get to a tried and true restaurant. Like the hotel, the food was beautiful but not really enjoyable. Complaints expressed to the front staff were met with a glazed smile and a vacant stare. Out of the many resorts that we have visited this ranks as the lowest. Too bad; it's fixable but whether or not they will improve is a chance my wallet and I don't intend to take!
I just returned from a weekend at the Club at Hammock Beach. It was wonderful. I went with 6 friends for a "girls weekend" away. We loved it so much that we want to bring our families back and also plan to go back for our getaway next year. We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo - very luxurious. The view was great. The beach was very private. We felt like we had it to ourselves. The grounds were exceptionally maintained. There were a bunch of pools, a big waterslide, and a lazy river. They have a restaurant at the pool area and had live music late in the day. They have a huge fitness center with weights and aerobics equipment and a separate room for spin classes, step and other aerobics classes. Walter, the fitness manager, was terrific! We took two of his classes. They also have an indoor pool, spa, shops, and restaurants. Two of us treated ourselves to a massage. They have a kids club which I can't comment on because my children weren't with me. However, I kept thinking how much my children would love the resort. The place is new, but all the services are now open (as of June 5th). Right now, it's not at all crowded, but as the word gets around, I'm sure that will change. I can't wait to go back!
The Holdin party of eight ranks this resort among the best if not the best. We plan to travel every year to your resort for our reunion. The condo was wonderful and plenty of room for the eight of us. We can't wait to get back next year.
Loved every time
We have stayed at the Club of Hammock Beach and were impressed with the condominiums decor etc. The club has wonderful amenities with the pool geared for children i.e lazy river, waterfalls, and slide. The golf course is beautiful and right off the ocean. I would highly recommend the Club. If there is a draw back I would say the town of Palm Coast does not have alot to offer, however, St Augustine is right up the road and it has attractions and good resturants.
Can't wait to go back
Absolutely incredible! Family oriented, impeccably clean and even the adults had fun. Walter at the Conceirge desk made my childrens day! We were there over Easter - they offered a sunset church service and a great egg hunt for the kids. The lazy river and the water slide brought many hours of enjoyment for all 4 of us. When we were finished will the MANY pools on site we just took a short walk to the beach. It was on the pricey side, 3 hambergers, 2 hot dogs and 4 soft drinks was a whopping $49. We learned quickly to not eat poolside. I really can't wait to go back - I think June 2004 is the tentative plan!
It's perfect!! There is everything to do and you don't have to leave the place. Perfect for families.
Great For Families
We were amazed at the luxury of Hammock Beach. It was simply amzing.
Our family (my wife and our two daughters) and another couple and their two children booked this place on a whim. We kept saying on the drive down "it can not be as good as the pictures" on the internet. Well it was better. The rooms were huge and the bathrooms were even more amzing. We had a three bedroom with eight people and never felt crowded. I only wish I had the $700,000- $1,000,000 it cost to buy one of these places. It would be a great investment.
For now, we will make this our yearly week at the beach as renters. It is the best $400 per night that we have ever spent. The pool, lazy river , water slides and hot tub are ideally located and kept our children busy while we lounged . We felt extremely safe letting our 7 and 9 year old daughters raom the pool area (although we were always close buy) while we relaxed poolside and read.
If you want to feel like you are a part of the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Go to Hammock Beach!!!
The developer did a great job, all rooms have ocean views and are very well equiped. Many of the units are actually 3 bedroom units that are ideal for families. The resort has a top notch pool complex and abuts a great golf course. The fitness room and restaurant were not finished as of mid March but they look to be ready soon. Overall it is a woderful place that I highly recommend
A Hidden Gem
Its Brand New so all of the amenities were not in place. But, what was available was spectacular. The pool faciluty has an indoor and several out door pools, waterslide, lazy river, waterfalls et. The landscaping is like a botanical garden and the staff were extremely helpfull and simply curteous in every way. When this is finished its going to be hard to beat anywhere in florida.
