Just got back!

My DH & I just returned from Daytona Beach. We went for the Turkey Run and it was a lot of fun. We stayed at the Acapulco, which was nice. The only complaint I have is that when we arrived they had given our room to someone else with our same last name and we got stuck in a smoking room. The room did not smell bad but once you turned on the bathroom extractor you were able to smell it. Thank God it was only for one night & my DH being a smoker was ok with it. Other than that it was a nice room w/a comfortable bed. All rooms have views of the ocean. It is quiet a ways away from where the action is but it's nice & quiet. We drove & parked in the parking garage to watch the cars drive down the strip & it was fun. We had dinner at Brians Grill, which had good reviews on this site & I am happy to say that everything we had was very good & inexpensive. We had the greek cheese for starters, the vodka penne, & a medium pizza. I had not been to Daytona for a few years & it has changed a lot, with a lot of new buildings & many more being built.

Glad you have a good time. I agree that Daytona is changing a lot and that it continues to be moving forward. It upsets me when people say that Daytona is a dump because it is not and most of the hotels are upgrading and most of the ratty ones are gone. It continues to expand and now has moved north to include Destination Daytona. The new boardwalk area will be a nice upgrade also.

I hope to experience the Turkey Run and all the special events someday. when I retire!

I will be there in 3 weeks and can't wait. Christmas in Daytona is very nice.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Daytona Beach! Yes it sure has changed quite a bit, with all the condo's being built, and all the old motels being tore down, in a couple of years, it's going to be a whole new experience when you go there.
