A-Jeep-tian Time in Daytona Beach

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Daytona Condo Realty, 386-405-4408

The beginning of this week started with the Jeep-siege of Daytona. Jeeps were everywhere. On the roads, on the International Speedway, on the Beach…

The biggest Jeep event in the nation started only 7 years ago, and the first one attracted only a few hundred of Jeeps. In 2016 there were more than 4,000 Jeeps.

On the Speedway the build a challenging obstacle and climb course.

It was not a sunny morning today, April 30th, but it is the last day of a week-long event, so I went to the balcony and took a short video of the endless parade of Jeeps on the beach.

We live in the area where there is a mile-long stretch with not a single hotel, and just imagine the level of Jeep activity close to our hotels and resorts.

This is a relatively new and wonderful event for Daytona

Here is a 1-minute video I took today at 8:30 AM from my balcony

 I Googled Jeep Beach and just picked one video to give you the idea of the event.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - it is fun and I hope the City would restrain in fighting a great event, like they like to do, and then get surprised that people leave. We have lost some great events, and do not want to lose this one.

Thank you

Hi Jon - That sounds like a great event for Jeep people. The majority of vehicles here are SUV's and a significant percentage of those are Jeeps - I owned a couple before switching to Hondas.

Dick Greenberg - here the most popular vehicle is probably a truck. I never had an SUV. For me a Jeep will be an overkill for our flat roads, but I trully enjoy the view of endless Jeeps on the beach. And the event is excellent for Daytona, it is a great fit.

Jeep on the beach in Daytona Beach, cool video. There is even a camera on this beach - https://www.worldcams.live/daytona-beach-shores-florida probably from one of the hotels. It's a shame I did not know about this event in advance.
