Palm Coast excels in the areas of technology and tourism. Palm Coast Data is the largest corporation in the city and one of its largest employers. As it’s home to several significant tourist attractions, a number of its residents make their living off tourism and the waterfront economy. As with most small and midsized cities, the largest employer is local government via the schools, police force and city or county management. Still others find their career in healthcare at Florida Hospital Flagler, the county medical care facility. The city is nestled in between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach and myriad employment opportunities await a short commute away. Palm Coast is one of those rare places that truly offers everything you need, work and play alike.
