We spend our winters in Ponce Inlet, next to Port Orange on the beach. I am a Procter & Gamble retiree, so was surprised to recently find a tie to the original Gamble Family nearby in Port Orange. This was originally a 700 acre parcel...More

Everyone should take a few minutes and experience Gamble Place. It's tucked away in Port Orange along Spruce Creek. There are several acres and some historical structures that are really a treasure for the area.

Located next to Cracker Creek, this is a good history of an old hunting/fishing cottage for the Gamble Family. Not fancy but peaceful Old Florida history.

Little slice of country. You can take canoes & kayaks out for a paddle. Property is nice. They have a fire pit and a covered area to sit and eat.

We took a 2 hour drive to visit Gamble Place, we arrived at 1.30pm, gates were padlocked shut even though the gate and website say it is open until 2pm. As it is only open for such a limited time, it should at least be...More
