I heard about the killing spree that was going on in feb. of 2006 and wondered if daytona beach was a safe place? and i heard that a disease went on during december and ive not heard anything else about it.is it clean because ive also heard that it has alot of roaches in the city. BTW does daytona beach have alot of little shops like myrtle beach. Are there shops and restaurants and different attractions along A1A like in myrtle beach's ocean boulevard and kings hwy.(the beach not the mainland) and 1 more thing is the beach, around the pier, sloped or is it completely flat? is the beach, NOW, roomy or is it kind of cramped? i heard that the beach was almost 2 football fields wide, but after the hurricane it is no bigger than about 50 or 100-150 feet or less wide now. is that true? PLEASE GIVE ME DETAILS ON ALL OF THIS! OK i hope i enjoy daytona beach better than myrtle beach THANKS! You dont know how much this helps because i cant fine NOTHING on the internet about daytona beach! THANK YOU!
