Astor Florida Business
Directory

Welcome To AstorFlorida.com
Astor Florida is located north of Orlando Florida between Silver Springs and Daytona Beach along Highway 40 on the St Johns
River and Lake George. Astor Florida is a small Florida Vacation community, where fishing, boating, & hunting dominate the
activities on the St Johns River. Astor Florida is home to many tourists and Winter visitors for a quiet Florida vacation.


Here are some tips on getting started in the Astor area, in both Lake and Volusia County!
Someone once said that relocating to a new community can be a "moving" experience, and we hope that this information will help provide a smooth transition.
