The Shores Resort and Spa Family Escape to Daytona Beach
Amy West, travel blogger at The Shores Resort and Spa in Daytona
Instead of one big babymoon before this little one arrives, we opted for a bit of a babymoon tour. After spending a night at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort, a few weeks later we headed over to Daytona Beach for an experience at The Shores Resort and Spa ( also featured in my 10Best Best Babymoon story). Our oceanfront room gave us a perfect view of the sparkling coastline during the day and the gorgeous full moon at night.

What a view! The water is nice too:) 

Stylishly Up to Date
After undergoing a six month property wide update, The Shores is welcoming guests to enjoy the only AAA four diamond rated resort in the region. Everywhere you look new touches make the resort shine from the transition from double to queen beds, to new furniture indoors and out. I particularly loved the addition of 14 Cabana Suites offering a private outdoor space poolside. Our room featured plush bedding and a private balcony with a birds eye view of the Daytona Beach coastline

Munchkin particularly liked the towel animals, previously only seen on a cruise we took.

Daytona Beach is a drive on beach. It’s amazing how many giant trucks you can fit on one beach. 
Tasty Delights

Breakfast Buffet
Guest’s will enjoy oceanfront dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at The Shores’ signature restaurant Azure. Before we headed off for a day full of fun in Daytona we indulged on the breakfast buffet which is complimentary for preschoolers. Everything from chocolate chip pancakes to a delightful yogurt and fruit bar packed the buffet ensuring each individuals tastes were met. 
Good Catch Weekend

Seafood Boil during Great Catch Weekend at The Shores Resort and Spa
Generous helpings of fresh seafood dished out for guests. 
Our visit was timed perfectly, as it coincided with The Shore’s inaugural Good Catch Seafood Festival. Food demonstrations, book signings, and one spectacular Seafood Boil made the weekend even more exciting. Even though I’ve lived in Florida since I was a girl this was my first seafood boil. Generous portions were dished out including crab, shrimp, sausage, and more. Live music filled the air on the pool deck as guests dined al fresco oceanside.

Signature S’mores

Oceanside Signature S’mores
A trip to The Shores wouldn’t be complete without a taste of their signature S’mores by the sea. Reclining near their oceanside fire pits we enjoyed conversing with other vacationers as we roasted our tasty treats.

From start to finish The Shores Resort and Spa is more than a destination, it’s an experience. Special moments are yours to capture as you escape the stressors of your every day routine, and slip into a moment all your own. Come together, and find your fun at The Shores in Daytona Beach.
Until then…
Enjoy the Journey!
