Daytona Beach Florida
by Ken Chaney

Florida is rich with miles and miles of beautiful sandy shores, and cool surfing waves. One perfect example is the Daytona Beach. It's a public beach where anyone can just simply enjoy the sands, seas, and wind. The only time perhaps where extra precaution should be taken is during the nesting season of sea turtles. At this time, it is best to drive during an hour after the sun rises, and then an hour before it sets. Sea turtles are known to travel back to shore at nighttime to lay on their eggs and the go back into the unchartered waters of the Atlantic.

Every year a lot of tourists drop by Daytona Beach to experience a summer full of fun and activities, two of which have never failed to attract people to come in droves.

First, all NASCAR fans can get a glimpse of what it is to be always in high speed with the regular NASCAR high-speed racing contest held in the superhighways of Daytona Beach called Daytona Motor Speedway. Along the sidelines of the international speedway are scattered souvenirs tourists can simply choose and bring home to their loved ones.

The largest congregation of motorcycle bikers on the East Coast Beaches converges in Daytona Beach, for a week of extreme biking, which they fondly termed as Bike Week. Now, if you like to take part in this activity as a biker or a spectator, you better be in town as early as possible since most hotels and other accommodations are fully booked around this time of the year. Lining along the streets of the Daytona Beach are different models of motorcycles owned or perhaps even collected by these bikers. Usually, the atmosphere in a Biker's Week is always full of fun and sheer joy.

There is underwater adventure available in the numerous shipwrecks in the area. People enjoy freshwater and saltwater diving, and snorkeling closer to shore. The Daytona Beach area features a popular rock ledge reef that has claimed many vessels over the years.

Do you want to explore the world under the sea? Well, get your snorkels and diving suits ready, as you go deeper into the waters and check out the many shipwrecks lying for so many years at the sea bottom. It's like touching Titanic and its history at the same time. Or you may go for a saltwater diving, snorkeling, and other water activities at the shore. There's a rock ledge reef that is well known of claiming thousands of vessels for so many years now.
