Bike Week will be held March 9th-18th, 2018!

Don’t be fooled by imitators! Daytona Beach is a city on Florida’s Atlantic coast. It’s known for Daytona International Speedway, which hosts February’s iconic Daytona 500 NASCAR race. The beach has hard-packed sand where driving is permitted in designated areas. Near the boardwalk’s rides and arcades, Daytona Beach Bandshell stages free summer concerts. Steps from the beach, Daytona Lagoon water park offers go-karts, laser tag and waterslides.

WHERE?
Daytona Beach is located on the central East Coast of Florida. It is 88 miles south of Jacksonville and 60 miles northeast of Orlando.

WHEN IS BIKE WEEK?
Bike Week centers around the Daytona 200 motorcycle race and a variety of motorcycle racing events and shows at the Daytona International Speedway as well as activities throughout the area.

HOW MANY PEOPLE ATTEND?
Our visitors come from all over the world. There are more languages spoken at Bike Week than at any other time of the year. In 2005, an estimated 500,000 – 600,000 people came for Bike Week. They stay in hotels, motels, condominiums, and at campgrounds throughout the county.

WHAT IS THERE TO DO?
The Speedway offers a full week of racing excitement including the BMW “Legends of Racing”, dirt track races, the Daytona Supercross by Honda, the Harley-Davidson TwinSports, 600cc SuperSport International Challenge and the Daytona 200 by Arai. Other events include the Harley-Davidson Museum, indoor show and Dresser Light Show, and several other motorcycle shows including vintage and custom bikes, European & Japanese motorcycles, sidecars and trikes. There are concerts, fashion shows, technical seminars and demo rides. You can join in a Poker Run, go to a motorcycle swap meet, learn how to “Stud Your Duds,” or enjoy one of the several free bar-b-ques.

While visiting here, the cyclists travel north to St. Augustine, south to the Kennedy Space Center and west to Orlando and even Tampa. However, one of the biggest activities of Bike Week is watching the other people and their machines, especially on Main Street in Daytona Beach.

HOW DO I GET THERE?
Daytona Beach International Airport is a Volusia county-owned facility located three miles southwest of the central business district of Daytona Beach. It is adjacent to the Daytona International Speedway and serves as a great alternative for visitors looking avoid the larger airports of Orlando and Jacksonville. The airport’s proximity to parking and lodging as well as its compact layout with shorter distances between ticket counters, ground transportation, baggage claim and terminals makes airline travel more enjoyable.
