Daytona Beach Drive-In Christian Church

Reviewed By Alaina1024 - St. Marys, Georgia

We attended the 10 am service at this church a couple of weeks ago. The service lasts an hour or so, and followed the provided pamphlet. It was probably the most comfortable church service that I've attended. As, we were in Daytona camping, and we were able to get up and go to church with little to no fuss. Because you can stay in your vehicle, dress/make-up/hair is not an issue. They've also got a small seating area inside what looks to have once been a concession stand. Oh, and they serve donuts and coffee as well. I liked the idea of their current fundraiser with the personalized bricks for the walkway. However, at $125.00 per brick, I found the cost outrageous. Consider lowering the price of a brick, and you may find that you'll attract more donors? Overall, I would totally recommend a Sunday morning visit.

Andy Romano Beachfront Park

Reviewed By juanita_v - Woodland, California

This would be a wonderful park anywhere, but it's location on the waterfront makes it extra special. There are plenty of tables and barbecue pits, a water fountain for kids to play in as well as a regular playground, and restrooms that look like they were designed by HGTV. There are even fountains to wash off the sand after playing on the beach.

A nice place to spend the day but a bit pricey . A must is the tour of the track and pit area . The gift shop is huge and covers all the drivers worth spending a few hours

Look into Florida's racing past here.

Reviewed By Eva L - Pennsylvania

Where do I start? The beach is clean with plenty of room to spread out without being on top of other sun bathers. The water is clear and the color is beautiful despite being on the Atlantic side of FL and not the gulf. There is parking permitted on the beach. There are lifeguards on duty in the summer. And BONUS - an ice cream truck came up and down the beach each day we were there. Plenty of spots to eat within driving distance as well as souvenir shops. We loved this vacation spot and will go back again.

I am not a big NASCAR fan, but this place is pretty awesome! To consider the skill of driving at such speeds and the engineering and mechanics required to keep it relatively safe, it sure earns my respect.
I know people have their favorite drivers but remember this is the King himself - King Richard!!!!

Dale Earnhardt Sr. Statue

Reviewed By LifeisTooShort69 - Kalamazoo, Michigan

When I think of NASCAR and the time I used to watch it a lot more, Earnhardt is the face and name that I associate with the sport. It's been many years since his passing, but seeing this statue at Daytona was a nice surprise as this is who NASCAR makes me think of. He was a larger than life personality who defined the sport.
