Simply Amazing Sunsets!!

I have been staying at the Heron's nest for years (around 15 to be exact). In fact, when I am in the Daytona area I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. My girlfriends and I love the amazing patio. We spend hours sitting on the patio, drinking coffee, listening to music, and enjoying the beautiful sunsets. There is so much to do in the Daytona area, but to be honest with you it is hard for me to leave the Heron's Nest. I am from the big city of Houston, and to be able to sit in my pajamas and drink my coffee with the view offered at the Heron's Nest it is truly difficult to pull myself away from the patio.
When we do leave the Heron's Nest, we always spend one day driving up the coast to visit the historical town of St. Augustine. St. Augustine has incredible shopping and great places to eat!! The drive to and from St. Augustine on A1A is one you will never forget. Oh, and you will not want to miss lunch at Snack Jacks in Flagler Beach (on the way to St. Augustine). Snack Jacks is located directly on the beach and the Fish Sandwich is the bomb!! Very casual...
Another great place in the Daytona area you will not want to miss is the "Ocean Deck". On Saturday afternoon, they have Karoake!! Great food, great music, and right on the beach!!
Another great place to visit while in Daytona Beach is the Flee Market! It is huge -- one of kind -- and always on my to do list!! Only open on the weekends.
The really cool thing about the Heron's Nest is that is extremely close to everything, but far enough away that you do not have to deal with traffic and parking. You can walk to the beach, or better yet just hang out on the patio (my personal favorite!!).
