Spring and Fall in Daytona Beach means the weather is perfect for a weekend cruise! Here are a few Top Rides you won’t want to miss while you’re here.
Old City Ride
Join in a favorite local tradition with a ride that begins at the Main Street bridge in Daytona Beach, winds along the Halifax River through the Ormond Beach Scenic Loop, and eventually puts you right in the heart of the nation’s oldest city, St. Augustine. During this 2.5-hour cruise, you’ll get your fill of beauty from places like the scenic AIA Highway, North Peninsula State Park, and Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches. It’s 110 miles of remarkable Florida views.
From the Birthplace of Speed Park to the Tomoka River basin, this 23-mile ride is part of a 30+ mile double loop known for its lush canopies of live oaks and scenic ocean, river and marsh views. During motorcycle rallies, be on the look-out for street photographers capturing your picture as you cruise through the Old Florida landscape along the Ormond Beach Scenic Loop and Trail.
Ponce Inlet Ride
For a shorter ride that isn’t short on iconic views, head out on the Ponce Inlet Ride. Start along the Atlantic coastline and curve back around along the Intracoastal Waterway on this 24-mile loop. It’s a ride filled with salty air, Spanish moss and superior scenery. You’ll see some historic and unique views as you go, such as the World’s Most Famous Beach sign and the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse, which is Florida’s tallest lighthouse. A little history and a lot of fun — you won’t want to miss out!
National Seashore Ride
Just over 30 miles south of Main Street in Daytona Beach, Canaveral National Seashore awaits your arrival. This cruise typically takes about an hour one way and offers many memorable sights along the way. You’ll pass by the marshes of Spruce Creek Preserve, take in the distant view of Ponce Inlet Lighthouse, and enjoy the laid-back, beachy attitude along Flagler Avenue. Plus, pass by the Turtle Mound Archaeology Site, Apollo Beach Visitor Center, Eldora Loop Road and more. The ride becomes increasingly more peaceful and remote as you near the national seashore, and once you’re there, you won’t be able to deny the sense of freedom it fosters deep within.
Iconic U.S. Hwy 1 Ride
The ride features the "World's Largest Harley Dealership" Teddy Morse's Daytona Harley-Davidson at Destination Daytona Complex; Flagler Beach, A1A Scenic Highway and the Ormond Beach Scenic Loop and Trail.
