The Heart of Sunnyland �D Daytona and the Halifax Country
4 HE UNITED STATES is noted for its recreation places, summer and winter. Situated with-
in its confines are many summer and winter resorts, which, with their appeal of water,
climate and recreation facilities, annually draw millions from every nook and corner of
this glorious Republic. These resorts have become famous for the diversity and magnifi-
cence of their attractions, and compare favorably with the resort centers of the world.
These resorts, though, with their diversified
appeals, are limited in their attractions because
of the fact that they are either summer or win-
ter playground centers. Go where you will, to
the famed Rockies of the Middle West, to the
Canadian playgrounds, to the charms of New
England, to the Pacific Coast from Vancouver
to San Diego, and you will find only the limited
appeal of either a winter or summer playground.
But in Florida, you will find them all in
abundance. The charm of the semitropics has
made Florida the winter recreation ground of
the American people. The same charm and
appeal is making Florida the summer play-
ground. From every State in the Union, in-
cluding California, they come to play through
the sun-warmed winters and the ocean-cooled
summers of this balmy peninsula.
When visitors come to Florida, they select for
themselves a place to stay where the magic trop-
ical sunshine and scenery meet their desires-
where progressive people have prepared for them
a welcome with all modern conveniences, ample
facilities for recreation, pleasant surroundings,
and congenial people with whom to associate.
In this God-favored land, which has long
been known as a winter playground, its appeals
and attractions have served as the magnet to
draw millions to the Land of Flowers. Its fame
has been carried on the four winds to every
civilized country; its appeals have been told and
retold to every civilized nation. Today Florida
is known as a winter resort without compare.
But its summer appeal has never been ap-
preciated. Those who have come in the winter
have, unfortunately for themselves, failed to
remain to enjoy what the commonwealth offers
as a summer playground, while its citizens have
been altogether too modest in singing the
praises of their benefactions.
The great State offers untold advantages for
summer recreation. Up and down the East
Coast, beach resorts shout their appeal of pleas-
ure and comfort. From Atlantic and Pablo
S ' .:. - ' ^ ^ 'i
beaches, near Jacksonville, down through the beaches of St. Augustine,
Ormond, Seabreeze, Daytona Beach, New Smyrna, Cocoa, Titusville, Ft.
Lauderdale, Palm Beach and Miami, advantages that can be found in no
other place in the world abound. Along the West Coast in St. Petersburg, ,
Tampa, Sarasota, Bradentown, Tarpon Springs, and many other equally - _
favored communities can be found the charms and recreations that have --'
placed Florida in a position where it takes second place to no other section. r
.- Halifax Cities Incomparable
The cities of the Halifax community combine all of the appeals that may --
be fund individually in the various resort centers of the State. Rare indeed
/ is there a community which combines the necessary requisites
/ -for both summer and winter recreation as this community.

ities, its health conditions, its pure water, its natural beauty. While all of
.i these stand pre-eminent, perhaps the most prominent is that of its equable
" . *. , climate. For twelve months in the year the people of the Halifax Country
i . live most comfortably and enjoy the advantages denied to less favored
Communities. Many factors enter into the making of this equable climate
and of these, the greatest are the trade winds which are continually blow-
' -- ing, and which temperthe climate, while other sections are sweltering under
the heat. Sunstrokes are unknown to the Halifax Country. The year-
round range of the thermometer is less than in any other community.
" Rarely in the summer does the thermometer go above 90, and even then
the tempering breezes leave the impression of a much lower thermometer.
In the winter time, during the most disagreeable weather, the thermometer rarely goes below 40,
g-ivine a ranee of less than o5 degrees the year round. There
is no record of :any he:r prot'irarion in Florida.
A physical factor that has much to do \\ith rlhec trade
winds is the fact that lDytonna and the other citrie, of the I-ali-
fax: C(ou ntry are locared on the narro-est part of the peninu il:a.

States. Re-enforcing its remarkable climate are many other advantages,
any one of which would be considered a distinct asset in any community. .'"
SFinest Beach in the World
It is generally recognized that the beach, on which borders Daytona i,
Beach, Seabreeze and Ormond, is the most remarkable in the world; with
its wonderful 30-mile stretch, 500 feet wide during low tide, it offers recre- -
ation facilities, the equal of which cannot be found anywhere. On this
beach the speed records of the world have been made, and it was here that '
the remarkable record of three miles in less than one minute was made.
The beach offers unusual bathing advantages, and because of the nature of the beach, it is per-
fectly safe for even the smallest child.
The Halifax cities have the best drinking waterr in Florida.
It is because of the purity of the water that the health condi-
tions in this section far surpass those in any other Southern
community. To the uninformed, this statement ma\i seem an
exag-geration, but to those \\ ho hale visited the Southern co01-
munities, it is an undeniable fact.
