If you're planning a Florida vacation, doesn't it make sense to stay on the beach? After all, that's where you'll find the pristine sand and cobalt blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Daytona Beach is known as the "World's Most Famous Beach," so why not see for yourself what the attraction is?
Staying right in the heart of Daytona can be pricey, however. That's why savvy travelers head a little bit south to Daytona Beach Shores and the Atlantic Ocean Palm Inn. This family owned property has all the amenities you need for a beach vacation, at an affordable price. Guests enjoy tastefully decorated ocean-view rooms that include refrigerators, microwaves, flat-screen TVs and free WiFi service.
Every day you can leave your room and walk right out onto the sand, and take a swim in the Atlantic Ocean. Daytona Beach has other activities you can enjoy during your stay, like surfing, fishing and sunbathing. When you've had your fill of sun, there are art and science museums to explore. Or you can take a tour of the legendary Daytona International Speedway, home to NASCAR's most famous race, the Daytona 500.
If you visit Daytona Beach during the month of April, you might consider taking a day trip to the Disney-created town of Celebration for the annual Great American Pie Festival. Now in its 12th year, thousands of pie lovers, tasters and bakers flock to Central Florida to create, bake and taste this all-American dessert.
There will be pie decorating, pie art, chef hat decorating and many more pie activities to enjoy, as well as the classic pie eating contest - for kids and adults. The highlight of the festival is the Never-Ending Pie Buffet, featuring award-winning pies, ice cream, toppings and beverages.
Once you've had your fill of pie, you can come back and relax in your room. Or head out on the town to enjoy a movie, listen to live music or enjoy some laughs at a local comedy club in Daytona Beach. Atlantic Ocean Palm Inn staff will be there to provide recommendations and assist you in making your Florida vacation an experience to remember.
