Octoberfest in Daytona

Hello all,

I'm headed down to Octoberfest in a few weeks and I'm trying to get a heads up on some good places to stay as well as sights to see. I know every bar is a good one as long as the beer is cold but where do most of the events happen. I know there are vendors all over the place so my question is who has the best deals on the latest and greatest out that way. In a nut shell I'm trying to power pack my 4 day trip with as much partying shopping and riding as possible.

Thanks in advance for your input.

Good questions. All over! Rossmeyer destination HD is a place where a ton of vendors set up , also Main street.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

For Vendors and stuff like that make sure to stop at the Daytona speedway and Destination Daytona. As for riding make sure you do the loop/Old Dixie Hwy. Ride up A1A from Daytona to St Augustine
and visit the fort and the sites in downtown St Augustine. At night hit main street.

Agree with bless0 100% Not sure if you have reservations, if not you could be lodging 20-30 miles from Daytona
Ride safe and enjoy

My buddies and I stay at the Days Inn in Palm Coast, FL . its a few exits north of Destination Daytona. It gives us great easy access to A1A abd 95 to either head south to Destination Daytona, the speedway, Main St etc. It also is less congested up there. Our saturday ride up A1A to St Augustine is only 45 minutes. Its 2 exits north of old Dixie Hwy which makes for nice riding to and from everything.

Palm Coast .... isn't that where all the Boston Irish mob bosses retire?

Palm Coast is where I choose to stay also. If you go towards Orlando on 4 it tends to get busy, and I guarantee everything in Daytona is booked or overpriced. Besides all the things going on in Daytona the AIM Expo will be in Orlando at the convention center, it's worth the trip. If you decide to go, be advised they close around 7 or 8pm so go early.
