10th Anniversary Trip to Daytona


Brought a book. Be sure to check out the lighthouse at Ponce Inlet, very cool and good excersize.

Quick Tips:

Would recommend purchase of camp chair from local WalMart for the beach, hard sand.

Best Way To Get Around:

Rent a car

Casa Del Mar


Unit was clean and well appointed.
Pool and hot tub were well maintained.
The lounge had wierd hours and was closed when I thought it should be open.
Good parking underneath resort.
Just what you expect from Blue Green.

Inlet Harbor Deck

Restaurant | "Inlet Harbor Inn"

The view was awesome.
We ate outside with the chiggers (bring bug spray)
My husband was disapointed that you could not order lobster if you ate al fresco (on the dock)
The food was very casual outside.
The live entertainment was good.
