Daytona Beach Florida

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...read more»

Cedar Key Florida

...A place where you can lose yourself while reflecting on the simpler things of life, and where some residents prefer to drive golf carts instead of cars for local trips. It is a place that offers the traveler a taste of what was when Florida was devoid of amusement parks, high rise condos and all the tackiness that has taken over many areas of the state.

There is only one road leading into the town and it crosses over salt marshes and channels on four, low bridges. Known as the capital of Florida's nature coast and sometimes referred to as the other Florida Keys, this sleepy old Florida hamlet with a population of approximately eight hundred and fifty people is bounded to the north by the historic Suwannee River and to the south by Withlacoochee. It is approximately a three hours drive from Tampa or three hours from Jacksonville, and it is fifty five miles southwest of Gainesville...read more about Cedar Key Florida »

Pensacola Florida

Along the Florida Panhandle on the Gulf of Mexico you'll find the city of Pensacola. Pensacola is part of a stretch of Florida loving called the 'Redneck Rivera' by the locals and in a way this is very true. Not only will you find some great upscale shops and restaurants but you can also kick back and relax on sugar white sand beaches as you stare out at the emerald green waters of the Gulf or you can charter a fishing boat and try to catch one of the many species of fish that swim in the waters around there. The sunsets along the Gulf Coast are some of the most spectacular you'll ever see, one of the best places to see a sunset is on one of the many piers dotted along the water here. It's a great place to just relax and take some time to unwind and speaking of time you'll have to be sure to set your watch to Central Standard time because Pensacola is the western most city in the Florida Panhandle and just past the divide into Central Standard Time Zone, the rest of Florida is on Eastern Standard Time...read more »
