As autumn quickly approaches, we want to make sure you know all of the fun things Daytona Beach has to offer! Traveling in the fall is great because hotel rates and airfare are very affordable. Plus, there’s nothing better than relaxing on a less crowded beach and blending in with the locals, enjoying seasonal events like this amazing music festival! Make sure to visit the Hawaiian Inn’s website for pricing and availability before you travel as rooms are likely so sell out during special event weekends! And if you have any questions, check out our Facebook page and we will be glad to help you. As for the festival, here are the details:

Feel good about it: The Daytona Blues Foundation is actually a 501(C)3 Not-For-Profit Corporation with the purpose of developing an annual blues music weekend to generate proceeds for health initiatives for women and children in Volusia County. The Daytona Blues Festival is run by volunteers; no salaries are drawn from any monies generated by the festival, and all proceeds fund women’s and children’s health services in Volusia and Flagler counties.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
