Planning for a Daytona 500 or Bike Week Trip?

Posted on February 15, 2022

This week starts the Daytona dream season for gearheads across the country as the Daytona 500 takes place on Sunday, followed by festivities surrounding the Daytona Bike Week, which begins on Friday, March 4 and runs through March 13. With all of this action, travelers planning trips around the races and Bike Week will need a place to “crash”. That’s where we can help.

Although some visitors have been known to prefer more alternative accommodation (see the infield at the Daytona Speedway for proof) there are terrific resorts in the area to rest your head between activities.  

When it comes to timeshares, owners have been known to buy specific timeshare weeks in Daytona just so they can use it during the 500 or Bike Week. So much so that an outcry was heard in 2017 when NASCAR moved the race date up a week from later in February to its current position leading up to the President’s Day holiday.

And for those who may think that Bike Week is just a bunch of bikers rolling through town, the event generates an estimated $75million in economic impact for the City of Daytona Beach, so this is a big deal for the local business community.

Top Resorts in the Daytona Beach Area

Daytona Beach

The resorts below are the most popular timeshare resorts in the Daytona Beach area based on offers and inquiries from our consumers.

Bluegreen Resort's Dolphin Beach Club (Daytona Beach Shores)

A wonderful location right on the beach, you’ll have the Atlantic Ocean right on your doorstep. Take a dip in the pool, relax in the hot tub or grill up lunch on the poolside BBQ. Studio and one-bedroom units come with all the essentials, with living area, kitchen and private balcony to take in the sea breezes.

Because you’re close to the Dunlawton Ave. bridge, you can cross over to Rt 1 and head up to the downtown Daytona area and avoid the beach traffic.

This fabulous resort in the Spinnaker Resorts collection is on the beach and just a few miles north of Daytona, but with the relaxed beachside vibe you’re looking for. On A-1-A, you’re at the E. Granada Blvd intersection which makes it easy to head back to the mainland and down to Daytona.

Indoor and outdoor pools, hot tub and Tiki Bar offer up the fun when not on the beach or at the races. Air-conditioned one- and two-bedroom units come with living room and granite countertops in the kitchen.
