I know it's early, but we decided to ride to Daytona for Bike Week in March. We're riding south to Key West from there for our 30th wedding anniversary.

Anyone have plans to go?

Anyone know a good hotel or other lodging option in the middle of the mess?


Any insight appreciated.

Me and a riding buddy just made this trip last week. We left upstate SC very early Tuesday morning and found ourselves in Daytona for lunch. After visiting Bruce Rossmeyer's HD and getting some BBQ from the place just across the parking lot, we headed to Key West.

On recommendation from someone on this forum, we got rooms at the Oceanbreeze Inn. Rooms were $139/night (off season rate). The Inn is located at the southern end of the island 2 blocks off of Duval. For the price, I would definitely stay there again.

I'll probably ride over; I live about 3 hours away.

Start looking now for a room in Daytona. I have stayed at the Suburban Extended Stay (has kitchenettes) and the Super 8. Both are cheap rooms at "event" prices.

We'll be there. We stay at the KOA in Port Orange which is about 5 miles from the Speedway.

Awesome. What days will y'all be there? We need to meet up. I burned some Hilton points and got a room Mon-Wed at the Hampton in near the speedway.

Just talked to the wife about her opinion on this very trip wednesday. Including going on to Key West. Now that would be a great early spring trip!

Yeah toyin' with the idea of riding down too but it'll have to be a last minute decision because of the weather. Really enjoyed Biketorberfest and would like to do the Key West thing!

Wife & I will be getting a Hotel for the last 3 nights of Bike Week, as far as the other days go I'll probably just ride over & back if I end up heading down....

Don't have much time to take off from work - I'll likely car train down then ride back to VA.

Camping at Daytona?

I am going to be heading to Daytona for the week. I'll be visiting some family in Orlando as well.

I have the option of staying in Orlando and going back and forth but i would prefer to have a camp site in Daytona for my "Home Base" while i am down there.

I'm going to be dragging a trailer down with my bike and 3 others on it, meeting up with other people in Daytona all traveling from NH and MA.

Can anyone recommend a campground with a tent site that i can have my truck and trailer at the tent site?

Wow! Dragging a trailer and three people from your bike will make your gas mileage suck! :rolleyes:

Daytona weather should be good that week in March. It's normally warm and dry that time of the year. Key word being "normally".
