Freezin in Florida

A January 2003 trip to Daytona Beach by Dattadude

Quote: It was pretty cold in Florida, unlike the 60 degrees which were forecasted earlier in December. The resort was right on the beach. We opened the slider in spite of the weather and listened to the ocean, the gulls, and had the light of the full moon. It was our daughters' ninth month birthday, but the water was way too cold for her feet! Daddy's too!

Best Things Nearby:The beach. In the summer, anything you want. Local supermarkets, restaurants, putt-putt golf, movies, bars, gas . . .Best Things About the Resort:All rooms are right on the beach, facing the beach. The staff is very helpful.

Daytona Beach

Attraction

Quote:
This beach has white sand, as far as you can see, which you can drive your car on. It doesn't get any better than that, especially when you want to take a slow ride alongside the beach--water beating the sun, sand, wind, seagulls, and nobody in a rush. The speed limit is 10 miles per hour. Parking is also allowed in certain areas.
