With Bike Week starting this Friday, the team here at First MFG Co decided to put together a list of some of our favorite places to hit while in Daytona for Bike Week. We wanted to create this list to give everyone an inside look at the spots we've grown to love over the years!
1. The Loop
This 25 mile ride is the definition of Short and Sweet. Its located in Ormond Beach, FL just a couple miles north of Daytona. It starts right at the beginning of Tomoka State Park along Old Dixie Hwy. and wraps around to A1A Beachside. Florida isn't really known for its sweeping landscapes but this tree covered road is a must see.
2. Main Street
Main St. is the center of the universe for many attendees during Bike Week. Its a quarter mile strip packed with bars, food, gift shops, tattoo shops, and any other mischief you want to get into. We definitely recommend grabbing some BBQ at Full Moon and checking out the bands down at Boot Hill.
3. Broken Spoke Saloon
Off the beaten path up on Hwy 1 is this massive outdoor bar in the middle of the woods. Broken Spoke has some of the best bands, bike shows, and bartenders in town. Lounge around a campfire or hang in the middle of a packed out concert at this rad spot.
4. Giuseppe's Steel City Pizza
Being a bunch of New Yorkers, its pretty hard to impress us when it comes to pizza. But this spot does not disappoint. Giuseppe's is located a couple miles south of Daytona in Port Orange. Not only do they have solid Pizza, but their menu expands way past that. We recommend the Steel City Chicken Strips!
5. Destination Daytona/International Speedway
The Two spots are a couple miles away from each other but they are the end all be all places to check out new parts. Packed to the brim with tents including motorcycle companies and aftermarket parts vendors, These are the places to be if you want to check out all of your big brands. Harley, Indian, Saddlemen, Bassani, etc. all set up between these two and show off their new digs for the year. If you're looking to upgrade your bike, get down to these two spots.
