According to a recent survey, 25% of students go on vacation during spring break.
That week off, usually in March, provides a valuable opportunity to unwind, relax and decompress.
Daytona in Florida is an extremely popular destination for spring break as it’s fun and exciting but also affordable.
You can explore the Everglades, head to the beach, enjoy a pool party and meet up with loads of other college students from all around the USA.
The best way to see Daytona is, of course, on a motorcycle, and there is a big biker culture in the town – you can even take a ride on the beach – what a way to see the ocean!
The Daytona Loop
The Daytona Loop covers 22 miles and is a great novice ride out so you can get used to the road.
There are plenty of places to hire a bike in Daytona, or you may even want to get your own.
Financing the purchase of a motorcycle with a loan means that you can spread the cost. A specific motorcycle loan could get you a discount on the annual percentage rates (APR).
Motorcycles are also an easy and affordable way to get around when you are in college.
To explore the loop, start out on John Hopkins Drive, where it meets Granada Bridge.
From there, travel north to Highbridge Road – the streets are lined with cool, shady trees.
At Highbridge Road, turn left, and you will be heading out on a beautifully scenic route through areas of wetlands with some incredible waterfront views.
When you get to Walter Boardman Road, take another left, and then finally take a left again at Old Dixie Highway – this will take you straight back to where you started.
Daytona to Apopka Lake
If you fancy a chilled day trip away from the crowds, take a trip down to Apopka Lake, where you can grab some lunch, swim, and enjoy some watersports.
The round trip will take you between 3-4 hours, so it’s the perfect destination for a day vacation.
Head from Ormond beach out on Route 1, and when you get to Bunell take the SR40 to Astor.
You’re then going to ride to Monteverde before reaching Apopka Lake.
The route takes you through the impressive Ocala National Forest and up Sugarloaf Mountain – a must-see on your trip.
Riding on the Beach
Of course, no Daytona road trip would be complete without a ride on Daytona Beach.
Riding is permitted in specific areas, an hour after sunset until an hour before sunrise during March and April when spring break is on.
Just make sure you stick to the 10 mph speed limit. It’s a great way to see the Atlantic ocean.
After your ride, you can park up and enjoy one of the many beachfront bars that Daytona has to offer.
Spring break is brilliant fun for college students and a great opportunity to get away from it all for a week.
Daytona is the perfect destination; you can see all the sights on your motorcycle!
