72 Hours in Daytona Beach

May 16, 2019


Who else loves a fun beach weekend trip? I know I sure do! My best friend, Autumn and I packed up our bags and headed south to Daytona Beach, FL for a fun girls trip. 

Where to Stay

Luckily, my parent's live right near Daytona Beach, FL so I don't ever have to pay for a hotel or Airbnb! Thanks, mom & dad!

Airbnb - can't go wrong with a unique Airbnb

If you've never used Airbnb before, you can use my link, https://www.airbnb.com/c/abigailw436?currency=USD   This link will give you $40 off your next home booking AND $15 to use toward an experience that is worth $50 or more.

Where to Eat


Cocina 214 - located right on the beach which was definitely so much fun! Autumn and I both got the street tacos. They were hella delicious!! We even tried parking on the beach the next day in front of them so we could walk up but it was slammed pack by the time we already got there. 

Caribbean Jack's - such a cool local seafood restaurant. It is apart of a local marina and truly beautiful. The food was pretty good, I got the mahi-mahi with a side of steamed veggies. I think that the atmosphere made the place really fun. A ton of locals were at the bar... even a man with his pet parrot, Chewy. See the photo below!



Where to Drink

Coyette Ugly - Autumn freaked out when she saw this bar. She is a huge fan of the movie! It actually turned out to be really really fun. I definitely wanna go back next time I go home. You'll leave feeling super empowered if you're a woman ;).


Landshark - Yes, like the beer. We noticed this place whenever we had dinner at Cocina 214. It's in the same parking lot. We got there close to closing but it seemed like a cool place to go if you just wanted to hang out and relax by the beach.

What to Do

Hamburger Mary's - Going here was one of my biggest highlights of the trip. I'm a H U G E fan of RuPaul's Drag Race and I have been dying to go to a drag show. This one was so much fun!! 

The best part of it all was being able to give my sisters best friend, who is fighting 3 different forms of cancer at 20 years old, (*please pray hard for her*) a really fun night.



Beach - I mean....this is pretty obvious. Go to the BEACH! Daytona is pretty cool because you can actually pay to drive your car onto the beach. I do this every time we go; you don't have to worry about dragging all of your stuff down and packing it all backup. You just go to your trunk and BAM. THERE IT IS!

MOM MOMENT: Please don't forget to wear your sunscreen when you're at the beach :)



Where to Shop

Outlet Mall - not much to say here other than it's your typical outlet mall. I ran into H&M and found this dress for $30 plus some super cute Rolling Stones graphic t-shirts. I'm linking all of my outfits below.


         
       
         
       
     
        


Story Time
If you follow me on Instagram @abigailgwfn, you would already know that Autumn and I had a day of bad luck when we were on the way home from this trip. My sweet little red convertible, that I have had since I was 18, died on us going down the interstate about 2 1/2 hours away from home. Eric ended up coming to our rescue, thank GOD!
