Easter Weekend Getaway


We made our way over to Daytona Beach on Friday afternoon for a little weekend getaway. Not your typical Easter weekend but we both felt like some sunshine and relaxing were in order.


We checked into our hotel around 3pm and got settled admiring the ocean view from our room before heading out to explore.

 

We met up with some friends who were also visiting from Orlando and walked and walked (in the wrong direction) to go to a local Tiki Hut Beach Bar but finally made it there to grab a cold one. #Tourists.


After relaxing the feet for a bit, I browsed through some of the cute beach shops and even got a little airbrushed outfit for Lola.


In the evening we found this gem of a restaurant with the best rooftop seating area to hang out and enjoy the views.




Saturday morning was overcast so we had a slow but relaxing start to the day with some coffee and breakfast at the hotel. The sun started making her appearance so we decided to go for a 2-mile walk on the beach towards where all the shops and restaurants are.



 We stopped in Sloppy Joe's for a beverage and some coconut shrimp and then the heavens came pouring down so we were stuck there until the sun came out again.
 


Once the sun was out it turned into the most gorgeous day to walk around the Daytona beach boardwalk and just explore.






The last stop was at Ocean Deck for an early dinner and some live music. We were worn out with all the walking and a little too much sun so we went back to the hotel to call it a day.


I slept for almost 12 hours on Saturday night. Blame that on the comfy bed, blackout curtains, and of course all the sun we took in the day before. In fact I was looking like quite the lobster. 


On Sunday the weather was perfect to enjoy some sunshine by the pool before checking out of the hotel. We made one final stop for lunch at Ocean Deck before making the drive back home in the afternoon.


It was the perfect little getaway even though we didn't celebrate Easter but the relaxing, sunshine & change of scenery was just what the doctor ordered.


Joint the lovely Biana for her weekend linkup.

  20. Looks like it was a great Easter weekend at the beach! My Easter was disappointing and I think next year I would go away. I use to think I couldn't be away from home for holidays but that is changing.
