Welcome to the City of Port Orange, Florida. Port Orange blends sheer beauty with opportunity within its 28 square miles.

Largely suburban, Port Orange does not have many of the issues other cities do. From its well maintained, tree-lined streets to its climate, parks, recreation, and schools, this community provides an exceptional quality of life. It is the pride of Volusia County and composed of 150 distinct neighborhoods. That makes it easy for anyone to find their ideal home.

The City truly lives up to its motto, “Unique by choice, not by chance.”
