I love out little arts museum. It's small, so it's a quick visit, but we love this place. They also have painting classes and kids arts and crafts evening once a month. They feature local artists and interesting subjects and the gardens around it are so gorgeous, great for a walk, sit in peace or watch the turtles. We love getting lunch at Lucky's across the street and eat it here, do take your trash though, please. It's close to the Casements so perfect to combine both for an interesting visit.
This is one of the places we are sure to visit when we come to Ormond Beach because there is usually an interesting show including local artists and there is a restful garden adjacent to it with a beautiful waterfall that continues into a stream meandering throughout the gardens. The walkways go up and down stairways, over little bridges that cross the stream and past a covered labyrinth as well as a picturesque cottage and some interesting and curious sculptures. All-in-all, one would hardly think that there was a busy street and shops just feet away. The several benches located throughout the gardens are pserfect for taking time to sit and reflect.
