If you’ve never been to Daytona Beach during Bike Week – definitely put it on your bucket list. In fact, why not come this week? There are plenty of week day activities to check out and to make it even more exciting, this is the 75th Anniversary of Bike Week being held in Daytona Beach! The Aku Tiki is a central location for all things biker friendly. Don’t have a motorcycle? Don’t worry – you don’t need one to experience all of the great activities planned. Consider coming mid-week: rates are cheaper and there are still A TON of great activities to enjoy.
During the week, you’ll be able to experience street festivals, concerts, motorcycle races, bike show, rallies, manufacturer showcases, and even more! Historic Main Street and Beach Street are less than 10 minutes away from the Aku Tiki, making it the perfect place to relax after a good day (and night) of Bike Week fun. The first Daytona 200 motorcycle race was held in January 1937 – but, due to World War II, the races were put on hold for a bit. Instead, bikers from across the country were invited to line their bikes up along Main Street and stay at area hotels, like the Aku Tiki. The unofficial party was call “Bike Week”, and now in its 75th year, it definitely caught on!
On Sunday, March 6th, you’ll be able to see the majestic, world famous Budweiser Clydesdales at Riverfront Park (just minutes away from the Aku Tiki) as they parade down Beach Street. Also on March 6th, local radio station 103.3 THE VIBE is pairing up with Daytona International Speedway to put on an event at the track that is sure to be unforgettable.
On Monday, March 7th, go check out the Harley-Davidson sponsored The Hairball Band at Dirty Harry’s at 7pm, followed by the Jasmine Caine at 8pm. Join these two bands for a great time and crank up to an amazing tribute to arena rock. Before that, go check out the Bike Week kick-off at The Bandshell, a beautiful oceanside venue. Harley-Davidson and other major sponsors are sure to put on a good time!
Don’t forget – in addition to all of these great activities, the Aku Tiki offers a great place to relax by the pool, on the beach, or for those 21 and up, to enjoy a drink at the complimentary happy hour nightly.
