Daytona Beach

Daytona Beach is the principal city in the Fun Coast region of the state of Florida. Known for its fine beaches, where the hard packed sand allows motorized vehicles to drive on the beach in restricted areas, it is the headquarters for LPGA, USTA, NASCAR & the Grand American Road Racing Association. Perhaps it was the appeal of hard sand, warm winter days and the excitement of that first motorcycle race on the beach, that made Daytona Beach the home of Bike Week. Bike Week has been a tradition since 1937.

"Barb and I want to thank you for all you did for us in our search for a retirement home. We knew we wanted to get to a warmer climate than Rochester, NY, but we weren't sure exactly where, and decided to make a grand tour of the Southeast, checking out various areas that had been recommended to us by friends and family. You helped us narrow down our requirements with the houses you showed us and the questions you asked. Your knowledge of the area and proximity to various amenities was very helpful in understanding their importance to us. Since we were checking out other cities in Florida and the Carolina's, you recommended competent real estate agents like yourself in those areas and helped make our trip a very rewarding experience."
