Living in Daytona Beach area is more relaxed and easier than in more humid Miami, and it is also the most affordable living by the Ocean.



We have a dear friend in the Bronx. When we became friends soon after coming from the USSR, her son Dmitry was only 18, as my daughter, and just one year younger than my son. Now he is turning 37 in December, but for us he is still the same Dmitry we remember him from nearly 20 years ago. He came...
The legend has it that after Henry Flagler bought and expanded Hotel Ormond, the managers in 1902 invited a group of automotive enthusiasts to the area. One year later the official auto races started in Ormond Beach. This was the only reliable flat track in the nation, and this beach has seen Old...
Our beach is like Broadway in New York City. That’s where you can run into people you know. I try to walk home from my office at least once a week. It is a 4.2 mile walk on the beach and I like it.

Halifax Ave right on the Halifax River (Intracoastal) in Daytona Beach, and I see familiar signs inviting to the 34th annual Greek Festival.

I remember waking early in the morning when I was little. It is freezing cold in the apartment, and it was impossible to open the tired eyes…impossible to get out of the warm bed into the cold morning air… put on that cold clothes, wash with ice cold water, and then walk to school on an ice cover...
I get a lead from Trulia. The lady found somewhere on the vast Internet that there is a one bdr/ one bath condo in Ocean Walk for sale for $20K. She wants more information. What information? It is like robbing a bank and then counting the money before leaving to make sure that you got enough... W...
