Heritage & History

Flagler County honors its place in Florida history, offering various museums, parks and self-guided walking tours, which have been designed for the communities of Bunnell and Flagler Beach.

Guided historic tours are offered through the Flagler Beach Historical Museum. Visitors traveling down historic A1A can take a custom cellphone tour and those on the western end of Flagler can enjoy a walking tour of historic downtown Bunnell. 

Visitors are fortunate in that they can experience Flagler County’s rich heritage in many ways. Flagler is bustling with history -- from storybook beginnings at the Princess Place Preserve, aquatic adventures in filming at Marineland Dolphin Adventure and Lindbergh’s unexpected vacation in Flagler Beach.  See Florida history in motion at the Florida Agricultural Museum, where dedicated re-enactors in period clothing and tell the story of Florida’s past and how it pertains to the present.
