I am headed to Daytona Beach in two weeks. It has been since the early 90s I was last there. Let’s be real here. I have no idea what to think of Daytona Beach anymore. I mean what is there to do? Where should I eat? Will my little guy have fun on the beach? Is it still a hot spring break destination? I do not want to get stuck swarmed by drunken college kids.

Well, easy find on the last question. No, it is not still a hot spring break destination. The city cut down on that traffic deliberately. According the the Daytona Beach News Journal, the city has been trying for years to turn Daytona into a family oriented destination of choice.

What are your thoughts on that? Would you take your family there?

Now that Panama City and Destin have become rife with high school and college spring breakers, maybe it is high time families give Daytona Beach a try again.

Since I am scurrying off to DB in a couple weeks, I am looking for ideas of what to do. In reality, I am going to be inside cheering on the SMU Mustangs at the NCA & NDA Collegiate Cheer and Dance Championship April 812, 2015. Whoot Whoot! #GoMustangs. However, we will not be inside all day long. We want to get out and explore. Check out the scene. You know, ‘get the skinny’ on this destination from yesteryear. Could it make a comeback?

I hear they still have bike week. Memories! I digress…

First things first, I have already touch based with a local colleague to give me the local perspective. I will be able to find out about local places to grab some grub, the best spots along the beach and places to maybe shop. It’s already been established that our hotel is super cool. I mean “on fleek”. I have been dying to use that phrase. Did I use it right? Maybe I should stop while I am ahead of myself. Back on point.

It is probably important for me to gather some information from recent tourist as well as from my local colleague. After all, It is two completely different perspectives and I could gather enough information to make this long weekend a fun one. Besides, I should probably consider doing a few hotel tours while I am there. Just in case you all decide to try Daytona Beach on your next family getaway. If you drive, it is around 15-16 hours from Dallas. If you fly, then you will get there in no time at all.

Have you been to Daytona Beach in the last year or two? Share some tips on family stuff.
