Not too long ago while taking the day off from selling luxury condos in sunny Ponce Inlet, we decided to head over to Racing’s North Turn for a little bite to eat and then a walk along the beach.

This is a fun little restaurant and bar and it sits right on the beach just south of Daytona Beach. This little stretch of sand has an incredible history. You see, racing history began on this very stretch of beach back around 1936. This is where they used to race automobiles in Daytona Beach and this now famous restaurant sits right where the north turn of the track was. 

Racing’s North Turn has always been one of our favorite places to eat since we lived in the condominiums just south of the restaurant while our home was being built in Port Orange. We used to sit out on the balcony and listen to the live entertainment out on their patio bar.

One of my favorite sandwiches on the menu is the Monte Cristo, which I almost always order when I visit. Their burgers are also very good. Their menu also has a wide variety of appetizers, seafood snacks, soups, salads, pasta, beef, sandwiches and wraps.

Today, Peggy ordered their fish sandwich and I had one of their cheeseburgers (Cheeseburger in paradise is now playing in my head …. lol)

One of the things we love about eating here is the patio is direct oceanfront. There is something about listening to the ocean while enjoying your meal.

Being located in central Florida, it gets extremely hot in the summer, but no worries, their patio tables all have umbrellas.

While enjoying our food, the sound of the waves, and the smell of the salty air, I couldn’t help but enjoy looking at the condominium tower that we used to live in. It is the first building just south of the restaurant (on the second floor). The building was built by DiMucci Development back in the mid 1990’s. We rented it from some of the nicest people from Indiana. One of the things I loved was this complex has 3 oceanfront swimming pools.

After our lunch we decided to go for a walk along the beach – one of our favorite things to do! Of course, it is a little windy along the water – but that’s just part of the Florida lifestyle …
