Worlds Most Famous Beach- Daytona

On sunday after Mitchell and I left Sanford we decided to go to Daytona Beach since we were already half way there. Daytona Beach was where we went for spring break every year. Its about a two hour drive from our home. We knew the town had really changed since the last time we were there and we wanted to see for ourselves.
This is the view crossing over the bridge..

This is the only beach in Florida you can drive cars on. I don't know it may be the only beach in America you can drive on.

Heres Mitchell looking all cute :0)

Along the beach are motels, condos and resaurants known as the boardwalk. We parked in a parking garage across the street from the beach and walked through a pass thru that linked to a movie theatre, restaurant and shops on the beach side. Then we walked down the boardwalk.

This was a memorial to motorcycle racing.

This picture below was taken from the pier. The pier juts out to the ocean and has a restaurant halfway way across and after that you pay $1.50 per person to walk to the end of the pier. Mostly fishermen are there at the end. On the beach side the band shell, an arcade and burger place are the only original structures there now.
This is a picture of the Daytona International Speedway. The Rolex 24 race was going on at this time.

We had a really great time and decided we will come back in the summer with our girls amd stay a couple of days.
