Lived here in the 80s, right by the Fleamarket near the speedway. Used to go to the beach and boardwalk. Used to roam the neighborhoods. Used to go bar hopping. Used to do this. Used to do that. Now I feel like I have to look over my shoulder to make sure I'm not about to be jumped. A1A used to be the place to go, especially around the boardwalk. Now its practically a dump. I used to go into Daytona for bike week and spring break, and the city council eliminated spring break? Even though that might be a good thing now because all the great things about spring break are gone....MTV, bands, celebrity comedians, and so forth. The generation today can't touch what we had in the 80s. Although the sad part about getting rid of spring break, that's what brought money into Daytona beach. It brought tourists, local companies made money, now its gone. The city went and revitalized the roads and such around the boardwalk, but what did it do? NOTHING. The city spent tons of money, and it did nothing to improve its image.WELCOME TO DAYTONA BEACH: THE WORLDS MOST FILTHIEST BEACH.
