Florida’s beautiful Atlantic Coast always attracts throngs of tourists with its great weather, beautiful beaches, great fishing and a cornucopia of restaurant, recreational and lodging options for every taste and budget. But, if as a simply smart traveler, your idea of a great Florida vacation includes luxury and full-service amenities at a fair price, a great place to stay is The Shores Resort and Spa.
Located on Daytona Beach Shores world-famous beach, the hotel has a gorgeous lobby, valet parking, excellent restaurant, pool and outdoor recreation area that is as good as anything on the beach. A full-service spa and meeting facilities are also available. Our oceanfront room was large and even had terrycloth robes waiting for us. Given its strategic location near Daytona Beach attractions, the level of luxury and service at the resort, it is a true value at substantially less than $200 a night (shoresresort.com) when we were there in mid-February. Yes, the weather was gorgeous.
