Time/Weather 386-252-8000 Visitor Information
Beau Wild is a passionate artist with a career that has taken unexpected twists and turns. In her latest artistic endeavor, her abstract paintings tell a story based on emotion and intuition.
For more information on what to see and do in Daytona Beach, Ormond and New Smyrna Beach Area, pick up a copy of SEE Daytona Beach Insider’s Guide in this hotel or go to www.SEE-DaytonaBeach.com.
“Abstracted images tell a greater story than representational ones, and when I move from figurative work to total abstraction, I feel myself letting out a full breath,” said Wild.
Where to Swim and Surf
During the majority of her artistic career, she created figurative work that gained her notoriety and reward.
Swim in the ocean or in pools. Many lakes, rivers and ponds in the area are unsuitable. Ponce Inlet, Daytona Beach and Ormond Beach have separate ordinances regarding surfing. Phone local police departments for appropriate surf areas and times. The In-Room Concierge Daytona Beach is published by SEE Coastal Media, LLC. P.O.

Wild is a native Floridian. She graduated from Tufts University and later attended The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, both in Boston, Massachusetts. She returned to Florida in 1983 after 22 years in New England. Since then, she has shown her work widely in Florida museums and galleries including the Museum of Florida Art, Florida Museum for Women Artists, Foosaner Art Museum, Tampa’s Museum of Science and Industry and the Ormond Memorial Art Museum. Her work is included in corporate and private collections and can also be seen at The Hub on Canal in New Smyrna Beach where she has a studio.

One visit to DeLand and you will know why it’s one of America’s favorite small towns. Located just 30 minutes from the beach, it is an exciting and diverse place to visit. From its historic Mainstreet district to the natural wonders of its many parks and springs, it offers something for everyone. DeLand is home to some of the most beautiful natural springs in the world for swimming and boating. The 72-degree year round temperatures of Blue Springs and DeLeon Springs attract hundreds of manatees in winter, which makes it an ideal spot to watch these incredible creatures. Skydivers from around the world find the weather is perfect for year round skydiving. A cruise on the St. Johns River, the only river in Florida that flows north, offers a leisurely way to see Florida`s natural beauty.
A superb cultural arts center with nine museums and the newly restored Athens Theater offer continuous shows and exhibitions that can compare to any city. Often called the Athens of Florida, it has many buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Monthly street fairs and a variety of fine restaurants and pubs keep the Mainstreet district bustling. The city hosts hosts a variety of events including the DeLand Fall Festival of Arts and monthly DeLand Art Walks where residents come together for a night of culture, music and fun. On any day of the year visitors will enjoy a day spent downtown browsing shops and galleries, dining at one of the great restaurants, or pausing for a coffee pick-me-up in one of the specialty coffee shops.

Carefree Bicycle Trails for All Riders Sightseeing is at its best on a bicycle ride with interesting things to see, like boats moving slowly on the Halifax River, pleasant city parks and one of our best-kept secrets, shady trails in the maritime forest at beautiful Tomoka State Park. In Ormond Beach, a good place to start is the parking lot on the southwest side of the Granada Boulevard Bridge (SR 40). If you ride south, a shared use trail passes through neighborhood parks with swings for children, gazebos where you can stop to rest, and piers where anglers are catching fish. On a mix of sidewalks and paved segments, you can ride as far south as Mason Avenue between Holly Hill and Daytona Beach. If you ride north, follow the sidewalk on the west side of North Beach Street. Youâ€™ll ride through an Old Florida neighborhood with large trees that form a tunnel of branches to keep you cool. At Inglesa Avenue a new 1-mile paved path through oak hammocks leads to the entrance of Tomoka State Park. You can explore all of the hard-packed, shady trails on your bicycle, stop for refreshments at the Outpost and even rent a canoe to paddle the Tomoka River.

new smyrna beach
New Smyrna Beach is a town that has held onto
its old Florida character by repurposing buildings into eclectic shops that are magnets for visitors. On the beach side of town, a patchwork of colorfully painted shops and restaurants on Flagler Avenue give the place its bohemian atmosphere. Nature-made adventures include kayaking along the Indian River and fishing the creeks and backwaters of the Indian River. If you try paddle boarding, you are likely to spot river otters, wading birds, bald eagles and an occasional dolphin. National Geographic has rated New Smyrna as one of the World’s Best Surf Towns for its steep, wedging waves, friendly locals and fun nightlife. After playing in the surf, it’s just a few steps to the beachfront deck of a restaurant. Along the 13 miles of powder-white sand there are beautiful dunes and tidal pools that harbor tiny sea creatures. To the south are the pristine beaches at the Canaveral National Seashore.

If you’re ready for a restaurant that’s a vacation-worthy upgrade, pick one with an all-weather deck overlooking a marina or a stretch of sun-kissed beach. Fresh Atlantic seafood served broiled, blackened, baked or grilled is always a good choice. For the ultimate in relaxation you can always dine

st. augustine, ponte vedra & the beaches When Ponce de León discovered this shore 500 years ago in 1513, he claimed it for Spain and named it La Florida for its lush vegetation and a festival of flowers in Spain called Pascua de la Florida. Although there is no evidence that he came ashore, he had it right. A stream of settlers from Spain and many other countries came to make St. Augustine their home. We hope you will join us as we have a good time at a series of events continuing to the grand celebration of the 500th Anniversary of our city in 2015. The colony endured hardships, pirate raids and warring nations, but it survived. Not far from the Old Gates of the city is the site of the first settlement, founded by the explorer Pedro Menéndez de Avilés in 1565. Archeological findings at the Fountain of Youth Archeological Park have proved it was next to a Native American village. Experience history through lively presentations by re-enactors firing weaponry and cannons at the Spanish forts. Listen to stories told by costumed interpreters at well-preserved colonial landmarks and the Oldest Wooden School House. St. Augustine is an American city that’s firmly rooted in European tradition, but it’s also the gateway to 42 miles of golden sand beaches and nature “Avilés Celebration”Artist: Joe Taylor

your visit, please come back again to celebrate the

Flagler’s Ponce de Leon Hotel 125th Anniversary of His Entrepreneurship The doors of the Hotel Ponce de Leon opened in January 1888, the first and most elaborate hotel in Henry Flagler’s resort empire. The 125th Anniversary celebrates his entrepreneurship and the architectural highlights of the hotel, which since 1967 has been the centerpiece of Flagler College. Flagler hired New York architects John Carrere and Thomas Hastings early in their careers before their firm won the commission for the New York Public Library. He chose the Spanish Revival style to compliment the city’s history and used the most skilled craftsmen to lay the tile floors and carve elaborate staircases. The celebrated painter George Maynard portrayed Ponce de Leon and Native Americans greeting the Spanish in murals that were later duplicated in the Library of Congress. Louis Comfort Tiffany created 79 stained glass windows for the hotel. Today students can gaze up at windows that cast a golden light over the Dining Hall where guests once dined in Gilded Age splendor. Flagler College Photos – Scott Smith; Anthony Neste, stained glass.

art of the fun in wine tasting is deciding what you find is delicious. Everyone has a different set of taste buds, so drink the wines you like with the food you like.
nstead of red with meat, white with fish, think about balancing flavors. For example, pair delicately flavored foods with lightbodied wines. A lightly flavored fish calls for a crisp, light white wine. Deeper flavored salmon calls for a flavorful, buttery white wine. Bold, spicy foods require a full-bodied wine that’s slightly sweet and full of flavor. Seasoned dishes like pasta and savory meats are balanced with a rich, robust red wine.

ALWAYS IN STYLE
Floridians are known for their own special style. They took the necessity of having to dress for hot, humid weather and ran with it. Florida’s “resort casual” has become the fashion of choice. Resort casual style is all about ease! It’s characterized by sundresses, tunics, capris, khakis and chinos, tropical prints, bright colors, sheer fabrics, caftans, boat shoes and flip flops. Speaking of flip flops, did you ever wonder how they became all the rage? Flip flops have been around for six thousand years and were first depicted on Egyptian murals around 4000 BC. They began appearing in America in the 1950s when soldiers brought back Japanese zori (similar to flip flops) as souvenirs. Since then the designs have changed. Flip flops have become a pervasive part of Florida beach style, and you’ll even find them on some high fashion runways! --Dana Whitcomb
