March 19th – March 22nd, 2008
My most recent mini trip where I worked and stocked my condos. I flew in on Southwest Air using Rapid Rewards points and the only available flights were out of Jacksonville: i.e JAX.
Jacksonville Airport: Quick walk thru terminal to public area, 10 -15 walk up type restauants /pubs – bookstores and various other small shoppes to pick up souvenirs relating to Florida – Jacksonville and area. Baggage claim is a short walk. Car rental — quick and easy, short walk to garage for pick-up.
Directions:: Jacksonville to Daytona– easy to pick up 1-95, took it south to Daytona. Trip time was about 1 hour and 40 minutes to Daytona. a bit longer than the ride from Orlando to Daytona.
Overall:: Nice airport, convenient destination for a Daytona fly-in.
As of now:: My 1st Choice in Airports would be
:: Daytona Beach (DAB) 2md:: Orlando (MCO) 3rd:: Jacksonville (Jax)
When factoring in price and convenience in timing flight schedules all should be considered when planning a trip in to Daytona Beach Florida.
