They call it “the World’s Most Famous Beach.” Indeed, Daytona Beach is blessed with literally miles of wide, white sand beaches that encourage walking, jogging, sunbathing, swimming or just lounging and enjoying the sunny, warm temperatures. Most hotel rooms have views of the expansive ocean that extends as far as the eye can see.
It brings to mind Habakkuk 2:14 Habakkuk 2:14For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
American King James Version×, “For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”
There is a multitude of housing opportunities in Daytona Beach, including all sizes and price ranges of hotel rooms, hotel suites, condominiums, studio apartments and homes—all within a mile or two of the beautiful, modern Ocean Center, which will be the hub of Feast activity. Daily services, Bible studies, the family dance and other events will be held here.
A variety of group activities—including a family day, senior banquet and teen and young adult events—are planned, and will be scheduled nearby to take advantage of the natural settings.
On two days, possible group excursions to the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral and the Holy Land Experience in Orlando may be scheduled. The Holy Land Experience is a park that replicates the setting of Christ’s time. On the campus is a full-size replica of the wilderness tabernacle and Roman Coliseum, as well as a Scriptorium which is said to hold one of the world’s largest collections of antique Bible and Judeo-Christian artifacts.
Daytona also has a wide range of places for shopping and dining as well as numerous world-renowned attractions. These include the Daytona Lagoon (a large water park with go-karts and putt-putt golf adjacent to the Ocean Center), the Daytona International Speedway, the Daytona 500 Experience, the Boardwalk and Pier (with its amusement park), Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and more.
Deep-sea fishing excursions, miniature and regular golf, boat rentals and other recreational opportunities are plentiful.
The normal high temperature for early October is 82-86 degrees and the average low is around 70 degrees. Travelers can fly into Daytona Beach International Airport or into the airports in Orlando or Jacksonville, both of which are 1- 1½ hours from Daytona Beach.
Around 1,000 people are expected to attend this site this year. The first service will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Friday evening, Oct. 2.
Note: Parking is free for members at this site when they use the designated Ocean Center parking lot for UCGia. But the parking charge that will be assessed to the Church is being reimbursed by the Daytona Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau as an incentive for bringing the Feast to Daytona Beach. Such reimbursement is based upon demonstrating that our members are utilizing Daytona hotels, motels, condos and rental homes. Anyone registering for Daytona Beach must be willing to fill out the housing survey or a form showing where they are staying so it can be verified by the convention bureau. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
