The Heart of Sunnyland
DAYTONA andthe Ha/fax Country
SHE charm of the semitropics has made Florida the winter
, recreation ground of the American people. They come from
every state in the Union, including California, to play through
the sun-warmed winter of this balmy peninsula.
When you come to Florida naturally you will wish to select
for your stay a place where the reputed magic of semitropical sunshine and scenery
meets your expectations, yet where has intelligently been prepared for you a wel-
come with modern conveniences, ample facilities for recreation, pleasant physical
surroundings and congenial people with whom you may associate. A _t
Come to the Halifax Country and you will not be disappointed. Daytona,
Daytona Beach, Seabreeze, Ormond, Ormond Beach, Holly Hill and Port Orange
are the incorporated cities of the Halifax community. The charm of this modern
and thriving resort group is distinctly unique and directly related to its fortunate
situation, the wealth of its natural beauty and to the fact that it was founded by
northern seekers of winter homes and has been
developed from the point of view
of the tourist and winter residents.

your connections with these lines and sell you a ticket
from your home to Daytona.
The main trunk of the Dixie Highway also passes through
Daytona, which is the pivotal point on the Florida east
coast, the only point between Jacksonville and West Palm
Beach, from which the interior and west coast can be
reached by highway. Daytona is within a day's drive of
every important point in the state. Bus lines on regular
schedule and cars for hire carry passengers to the interior
and to all points on the east coast every day in the year.
The Halifax river connects Daytona with an inland
waterway with a minimum depth of four feet and a maxi-
mum depth of five and one-half feet, providing navigation

to light draft yachts and house boats. During the winter
season scores of these light water craft from practically
every Atlantic seaport, on a cruise off the east coast and
the south Florida Keys, accept wharfage at the Halifax
River Yacht Club at Daytona. Two boat yards give all
necessary service to yachts.
Four auto camps are provided at Daytona, under city
and state sanitary inspection.

Natural Characteristics
The natural appeal of Daytona and the Halifax com-
munity is based chiefly on sun, landscape and water. Here
the climate is especially kind. Free from high tempera-
