Daytona Beach is also known for its high security measures around its main hotel locations, some are armed with multiple cameras for filming hotel and beach areas. Daytona Beach is one of the few places in the world where a family car can be used on an ocean beach. Most other driving beaches require 40-wheel drive or other special equipment.
But, what really makes the Daytona Beach an ultimate adventure destination aside from the "Speedweeks"—where Daytona 500 NASCAR race and the Rolex 24 sports car races, and others take place—are the "Pepsi 400 NASCAR" race on or around July 4 which is traditionally called the "Firecracker 400," the Daytona Beach "Bike Week Daytona 200" motorcycle race in March, the "Biketoberfest" in October.
The "Turkey Run" car show and events during Thanksgiving weekend which is also traditionally called the "Turkey Rod Run," the "Black College Reunion" or BCR, and the "Spring Break" as a getaway for so many college students out there.
