As you leave a city, you will unknowingly take your impressions of it with you.
Daytona has left it’s impression upon me.
I am from Chicago and Chicago has a dominant male personality. It is unmistakable and you feel it as you stroll thru the streets. The streets are rough and unforgiving; the buildings are a massive hovering presence that has an unmistakable profile against Lake Michigan. Chicago, the harshness of his winter, the stillness of his cold nights, his ability to impress you and make you want to learn more about him. The City leaves the impressions of a hard working man who has spent years working hard and accomplishing to grow large and strong.
Daytona has a completely different feel. This city is like a warm vibrant powerful woman inviting you to a party. She knows how to throw a party and invites everyone to many each year. She is there with you, shooting tequila, she will not leave you disappointed if you accept her invitation.
Her invitations have a challenging allure, especially to men to bring their power forth and prove themselves and their strength, speed and courage. She knows many that have attended before and proven themselves on her sands and she beckons to attend and impress her again.
” The Daytona 500, the speed, the glory, the opportunity to prove yourself and outrun your opponent. The spectator is part of a larger team summoned to cheer their ride to victory.
” Bike Week, the boldness, the freedom, the challenge to come, impress and conquer,
” Spring Break, the youth, the freedom the invitation and promise of sun, fun and bikinis.
The place where many have gone and been fat – drunk AND stupid, yes, no way to go thru life….
” National Cheerleader’s Association- NCA College Nationals & Championship
” Daytona 400 & July 4th Celebration
” Biketoberfest, which brings the motorcycles back to town
” Turkey Rod Run
Daytona, the city, is a warm vibrant presence with warm sea air, blue skies and sunny kisses on your face. You can feel her smiling with you while you are in her presence. She invites us back and we are happy to attend. She lures and seduces with her sand and beaches, the perfect backdrop to all of her celebrations !!
Yes, Daytona, the city, is like a woman, who slams tequila with you and knows exactly how to throw a party!!
