Biketoberfest, held annually in October, is another tourism event that attracts motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world to the Daytona Beach area.
Bikertoberfest, which is known for its family-oriented activities, draws about 60,000 motorcycle enthusiasts to the area annually.
Biketoberfest is unique from other motorcycle enthusiast festivals in that you don't have to own a motorcycle in order to have a good time.
Events such as the Daytona Harley-Davidson Seafood Festival, championship racing at Daytona International Speedway, numerous street festivals
and concerts, as well as the area's popular tourist attractions, give riders and non-riders plenty to see and do during their stay.
What also sets Biketoberfest apart is that it is a very family-friendly event. Over the years we have seen the number of families enjoying
Biketoberfest grow,says Janet Kersey, director of tourism events and bureau services for the Daytona Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau
and the "birthmom" of Biketoberfest.
Motorcycle enthusiasts won't want to leave the Daytona Beach area without taking a ride through
"The Loop"-- a 22-mile course through the area that is a must for riders who enjoy an open road and Florida's natural beauty.
This scenic course begins north of Beach Street off of Granada Boulevard in Ormond Beach and runs north through rural and forested
areas such as Tomoka State Park and Bulow Campgrounds. Throughout The Loop, riders can expect to see Florida swamplands, beautiful
tree-lined boulevards and exquisite riverfront estates without the worry of traffic lights.
