Summer weeks are almost here and we have not heard from all of our summer owners!  If you have NOT made plans for your 2015 timeshare week please click here to let us know your intentions right away.  Weeks 23 through 35 should have confirmed plans or confirmed deposits already.  Remember…you can give your week to the exchange company 14 days prior to your week, but your trading power will be adversely affected!  A good rule of thumb is to always make plans for your weeks a minimum of 60-days in advance of the arrival date of your week!

Daytona Beach welcomes the motorcycle enthusiasts in March and again in October as they roll in for the ‘World’s Largest Motorcycle Event’ – Bike Week and Biketberfest. Ride down historic Main Street and Beach Streets, along AIA or the scenic ‘Loop’ in Ormond Beach. Bike Week’s 10-day event, and Biketoberfest’s weekend event, provides high octane with street festivals, concerts, motorcycle races at Daytona International Speedway, bike shows, rallies, manufacturer showcases and more.

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. Maybe it was the spirited activities surrounding the event that have kept people keep coming back. Whatever the case, Bike Week has been a tradition since January 24, 1937 – the inaugural running of the Daytona 200.

Today Bike Week has transformed into a 10-day festival that expands throughout Volusia County. There are hundreds of events for motorcycle enthusiasts to enjoy. Bike Week now welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors annually and is enjoyed by locals and motorcycle enthusiasts world wide.

Each year, nearly 125,000 motorcyclists roll into the Daytona Beach area for a multi-day, annual event called Biketoberfest. This extended weekend of fun and sun includes motorcycle shows and rallies, live music, scenic rides along A1A and other historic roadways, racing at Daytona International Speedway and vendors offering everything from the latest models to parts and accessories.

Established more than 20 years ago by the Daytona Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, Biketoberfest is typically held the weekend immediately following Columbus Day with most visitors staying throughout the week.

The world-renown Daytona 500 race will take place on Sunday, February 22, 2015, starting at 1 PM at the Daytona International Speedway.  Elimination races have already begun and you can see a noticeable difference in traffic and the number of people visiting our beautiful beachside city!  If you will be with us over the next two weeks, we highly recommend attending any of the races up to and including the #Daytona500.  It’s an experience you must have at least once in your life!  If you will be in Daytona, check out a race!
