So... For those of you who are not familiar with the Things to Do/Places to Visit group, … (8 comments)

For all of you who live in the Daytona Beach area, and for all of you who plan to buy real estate in Daytona Beach, this blog's for you.

things to do: Why Should You Buy Real Estate in New Smyrna Beach? - 12/07/08 04:57 PM
If you're one of my regular blog readers, you know that many times, when providing you with information about a particular city in which you might like to buy real estate, rather than present you with just facts and figures, or straight real estate data about that city (although I sometimes do that too, since some of you like those posts as well) I often like to present you with fun things to do in that area. That's what this post will be; for the city of New Smyrna Beach.

things to do: Movie Night! Every Friday Night at Chase's on the Beach, in New Smyrna Beach FL - 10/27/08 05:51 PM
Residents of New Smyrna Beach, Edgewater, or the Daytona Beach area, if you have plans for next Friday night, you need to cancel them! Why? Because CHASES ON THE BEACH in New Smyrna Beach has something new planned for us on Friday nights. Beginning Friday, October 24, 7 pm we can now enjoy MOVIE NIGHT! Unfortunately, we've already missed the kickoff classic movie, "BEACH PARTY" starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello. Doesn't that sound fun?

things to do: Great Blogs From Around the Country. Things to Do/Places to Visit - 08/30/08 12:28 PM
I had other plans for today's blog, until I started reading the blogs in the Things to Do/Places to Visit Group, on Active Rain. I have to admit, I'm not always on top of things in the group, so thank you, everyone who continues to post great information about things to do in your areas, or places you recommend we visit (or move to). We now have over 1,000 posts in the group and I think in all this time (actually only 8 months), I've only had to remove one post that didn't follow the guidelines of the group.

things to do: Can You Find Things to Do, When You Know Nothing About Your Current Location? - 08/24/08 09:16 PM

Have you ever thought about how you would find inexpensive things to do in a particular city or area? I'm not talking about your home town, or even a vacation destination. I'm talking about moving to a new location and knowing very little about the area. Most of you will probably have your mental wheels turning. First of all, set aside the thought of how that could possibly happen. We'll get to that later. Once you get past that, you're probably thinking you can just go find a visitor's guide, or do an online search, or even ask some local … (6 comments)

This is a silly, lighthearted post. My comments today just pushed my points beyond 200,000. And my last post was my 400th. So here are my official stats...

One thing I'd like to point out about my stats. I have way more comments than I do posts. It's a way of paying it forward. We should … (19 comments)

things to do: Another Great Reason to Buy Real Estate in Port Orange FL! - 05/16/08 09:07 PM

Home buyers who are thinking about moving to Daytona Beach, make sure you don't overlook the beautiful city of Port Orange, just 7 miles south of Daytona. I'm a Daytona Beach native, I've sold real estate in every city in Volusia county, and I personally live in Port Orange.
One of the best things about Port Orange is the City Center. I've written several posts about events happening at the Port Orange City Center. The event that most locals are familiar with doesn't happen until October, called Port Orange Family Days. So you'll have to wait a few more months … (1 comments)
