After waking up refreshed from a peaceful night’s sleep — a long day at the beach will do that! — you roll out of bed and fuel up with a delicious Ms. Maggie’s breakfast before embarking upon your next adventure. Fortunately, it’s just a quick walk away: turn left on Palmetto, right on Gardiner, and left again on Downtown Daytona’s historic Beach Street.
You might be wondering: just where are we going, exactly? A little over 10 minutes after leaving Ms. Maggie’s front door, you’ll arrive at the Riverfront Esplanade, Daytona Beach’s newest outdoor attraction — and a must-see on your next visit here.
If you’ve visited Daytona Beach before, you might know the stretch of green space between Beach Street and the Halifax River as Riverfront Park — but after a restoration project two years in the making, the gorgeous outdoor destination is a completely new experience that meshes well with any vacay agenda.
By the way, there are even more updates are on the way later this year! But until then, here’s everything you can enjoy at the new Riverfront Esplanade so far.
There’s always something going on at the Riverfront Esplanade. While you’ll want to check in with the property’s event calendar before your specific stay, here’s a sampling of what’s been going on in recent weeks, plus a peek at what’s coming up:
Later this year, The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that there will be a 30 Days of Christmas Event with holiday fun — and yes, plenty of stunning lights — all December long, perfect if you’re already looking ahead toward your winter break getaway.
Of course, you don’t need to wait for a special event to enjoy everything the Esplanade has to offer! As The News-Journal points out, there’s a multipurpose path for getting your vacation walk, jog, or bike ride in, as well as several bridges and all-new landscaping to admire. Plus, a dog park! Speaking of...
Did you know that small pets are more than welcome at Ms. Maggie’s? Just call ahead and let us know when booking your stay — then, prepare to introduce your pup to his or her new favorite vacation spot! According to the Riverfront Esplanade’s official website, you can now purchase a six or 12-month membership for use of the property’s private dog park — perfect for those who take multiple trips to Daytona Beach throughout the year.
We hope that you’ve enjoyed this virtual tour of the new Riverfront Esplanade! Of course, there’s nothing like seeing the real thing right in front of you. When you’re searching for Daytona Beach vacation rentals, opt for an inn at the heart of it all — where you’re never more than a quick walk away from historic charm and modern fun. We here at Ms. Maggie’s South Country Inn can’t wait to welcome you for your next stay.
