Will it be busy the week before the race?

I just realized the week we will be in Daytona is the week before the race. We'll be heading back home on Sat.... race will be Sun. How will this affect the area? Traffic? What day will things start getting more crowded?

codysmom just saw your post on when you will be here. Your talking about the Pepsi 400 I think??? You won't have to much of a problem. It's certainly not the zoo the 500 is.

If you are staying near Ocean Center...it will be a zoo. There is a national talent show there the week of June 22-29th.

Alternate traffic route instead of A1A would be Penninsula....3 blocks west of A1A for North - South Travel.

For East - West travel, as always avoid ISB, use Mason or Seabreeze to the north of ISB.

Silver Beach or Orange South of ISB...

Good Luck!!

O so there will be a national talent show? Is it free? Is it in the Bandshell? Is it usually packed for the talent show? I'm going June 19th - 24th. So do you think it would be crowded just the 22 - 24 or the whole week??? O & 1 more thing can you walk from your hotel down to the Ocean Walk Village? like i mean on the road or is there any sidewalks?

Yes, the talent show is for younger girls....it is a national "Dance Recital" sort of thing....it is at Ocean Center, not the bandshell.

There are sidewalks and a walk over A1A...so yes, you can walk from Ocean Walk to Ocean Center...you will pass Ice cream shoppes, Burger King and a pizza place...tavern...etc.....

CORRECTION>>>> I misunderstood your question...

From Ocean Walk Resort to Ocean Walk Village....from the Ocean Walk South Tower...go to 4th floor and walk out the south entrance and you will be in Ocean Walk Shops outside of the movie theatre & Adobe Gillas.....

Is there any of the airplanes that fly over the beach advertising for restarants, shops, etc. like the ones in MB or not?
