March is here, and despite what the groundhog said a few weeks ago, it’s beginning to feel like spring here in Florida.
There’s always plenty to do here in the Sunshine State, but this is the time of year that events go into overdrive.
Here’s just a taste of what Florida has in store for March.
Bike Week – Daytona Beach
It doesn’t officially begin until March 7 but residents in our Daytona area communities can already hear (and feel) it coming.
Each year roughly 500,000 people visit Daytona for this 10-day event featuring motorcycle racing, exhibits, concerts, shows, booths, and a variety of parties.
And every year it seems there are one or two that swing by one of our models, fall in love with a home, and decide to never go back home.
Major League Baseball Spring Training – Various Locations
We told you about several golf and tennis events happening over the next few months, but Major League Baseball also sets up shop in Florida each March.
