Rainy Day Fun


In Florida, bright sunny days reign supreme. Weeks can go by with a cloudy day being the biggest change in climate. Sometimes though the sun takes a quick break so the rain can come in. Rain in Florida is a little different than your typical rainstorm. Sometimes we can have a severe storm roll in, and half an hour later the sun will shine and the sky will be clear. Othertimes it will start before the sun comes up and not end till the next day. Other days it can switch back and forth from sun to rain so much that the channel 2 weatherman throws his arms up and goes home for the day. If you come to Daytona on vacation and get caught in one of these rainy days, don’t fret, there is still plenty to do.

You can venture out from the Ocean Walk Resort and engage in one of these fun activities:

See a Movie: Just down the way from the Ocean Walk Resort is the Paragon Ocean Walk 10. Showing the latest films and offering lots of amenities, you can pass a couple of hours at the big screen.

Visit the Mall: The Volusia Mall has plenty to do on a rainy day. If you love to shop, then you will fall in love with all the stores you can visit. If you don’t love to shop, they have a full food court, and comfy sitting areas while you can relax while other people shop.

Food and Drink: All around Daytona, from Atlantic Ave to International Speedway, are restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. Some feature live music at certain times, others have tables with a fantastic view of the ocean. Sit back, enjoy a good meal, and see if the rain passes.

What if you don’t want to leave the Resort? That is just fine, there is plenty to do inside the resort.

Indoor Swimming Pools: Just because it is raining outside does not mean you can not have fun in the water. Ocean Walk Resort features a full indoor pool.

Get Fit: Do you like to stay healthy? The fitness room is open to all quests. You can workout and burn calories while waiting for the sun to come out.

Play Games: Also open to resort guests is the game room. Bring the family down and have a pool tournament, or go head-to-head at air hockey.

Relax: If you want to use the rain as an excuse to be lazy for a few hours, than lay back on the comfortable beds, switch on the television, and chill. After all, what is a vacation without a little down time?

Rain or shine, you can still enjoy a Florida vacation. While in Daytona, don’t be afraid to explore a little when it isn’t exactly beach weather out. You never know what you may find. To get the most out of your trip, regardless of the climate, book a room with Ocean Walk Resort.
