Daytona Beach, Florida, is best known for its drive-on beaches (that is, you can drive cars right down to the water). This results, to a native of the white sugar-sand beaches of the northwest Florida Emerald Coast, in a rather ugly flat, yellow beach if you're not a teenager or college kid dragging the strip.

But Daytona boasts one of the finest newspaper editorial pages in the nation. To prove it, read Pierre Tristam's "Catastrophic War Game."

The ugly flat beaches of Florida are there regardless of whether they are driven upon. Take a trip down to Corpus for a nice wide beach with a gentle slope that you can drive on for miles.

Also, since you now have haloscan, you can dump the spammers and even ban them if they come back.

Thanks for the spam tip, XPat. But I take issue your lumping ALL Florida beaches with Daytona's. The beaches of my home stomping grounds, Panama City, Fort Walton, Destin, etc. are simply unmatched, with rolling dunes of sugar-white sand. You're right about Corpus, though. I guess it's just a case of Gulf beaches being far superior to those of the Atlantic!
