Under $100: Daytona Beach

Daytona Beach is known for rough party crowds and a beach scene that’s, for the most part, fallen into a lot of decay. However, the town offers a lot in the way of a sort of forgotten beach town charm. Home to the occasional convention and the few remaining nice hotels, it’s a good place to go for a weekend on the beach, enjoying cheap eats, cheap drinks and simple fun.

The Blacksmith Inn, Door County

On my visit to Bailey’s Harbor, Wisc., last month, I had the opportunity to stay at a great bed and breakfast on the shore, the Blacksmith Inn. This was my first time in the state, which was quite different from my usual urban-centric travels, but I found the inn to provide relaxing accommodations that perfectly rounded out my stay in Door County.
