The reasons why come from the […]

“Food Brings Hope” Charity Teaches Children About Construction Careers

Food Brings Hope is a non-profit that provides assistance for hundreds of homeless and economically disadvantaged children in Volusia and Flagler counties.

Our Guide to St. Augustine’s Historic District

St. Augustine. It’s one of the oldest places in the United States and one of the most heavily visited.

We at ICI Homes promise it’s worth it. The Ancient City is less than 50 miles south of Jacksonville and under 100 miles north of Daytona Beach. That makes it the perfect day trip for residents in many of our communities! It’s the nation’s oldest city (founded in 1565) and contains many structures that are “the oldest” in some guise.

You’ll find six centuries of architecture, history and just plain “wow” moments. It’s also easy to find great photo opportunities and food and drink.

Let’s […]

Cool Ways to Get on the Water in St. Augustine

Unless you’re allergic to water — is there such a thing? — one reason you may be planning a move to Florida is so you can dwell near an ocean.

Or, a cool, calming river, lake or creek within view of your backyard. And there are few places to better enjoy Florida’s watery riches than the metro Jacksonville area, where the St. Johns River flows through its downtown, and the Atlantic Ocean is only a few miles east.

But you don’t have to live in Jacksonville proper to find the water. Nocatee, the master-planned community south of “JAX” that’s one of […]

Let’s Explore the Outdoors in Daytona Beach

If you’re a new Daytona Beach-area resident, you might not realize how easy it is to explore conservation lands here.

Sounds contradictory, doesn’t it? Especially when the “World’s Most Famous Beach” is home to some of the state’s highest-powered tourist attractions?
