Biketoberfest is an annual motorcycle meetup that’s been running annually since 1992. Its original name was “Daytona Fall Tour”, and in 1993 it became known as what it is today. October is the perfect month for a motorcycle event in Daytona Beach – not too hot, not too humid, and with a great breeze coming straight off the ocean. There’s nothing like riding a motorcycle down Main Street with the ocean breeze blowing pleasantly across your face! Vendors from across the country join local stores, bars, and restaurants for an unparalleled assortment of food, beverage, and merchandise options. Main Street, a longtime staple of the Biketoberfest tradition, is only a short 5 minute cruise down AIA from The Aku Tiki – making the family owned hotel the perfect place to stay. With its complimentary continental breakfast and happy hour, the hotel is the perfect Biktoberfest choice.
For a true Daytona Beach Main Street experience “must stops” during the week include: Main Street Station, Boot Hill Saloon, Main Street Station and “Official Gear”, a half mile stretch along the Halifax River where both food and merchandise vendors sell their gear.
Another must-stop is Bruce Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona – a one stop destination for all things Harley Davidson. The year round attraction features special events during the whole of Biketoberfest. Along with its bar and restaurant scene, Destination Daytona is home to an official Harley Davidson dealership…if you’re interested in buying a new bike, this would be the place to do it!
For those who want both beach and bikes (the best of both worlds), staying at The Aku Tiki during Biketoberfest 2015 is the perfect place to be.
