Hello..

My friends and I are going to be vistiting Daytona Beach this spring and we were just wondering if the situation with jelly fish, and bird droppings from earlier in the year had been fixed yet or if the beach is still in bad condition?
Also how is the night life in mid-March? Will there be cops everywhere? If anyone has any info here it would be great!

Water will be a little chilly, you probably won't want to get in the ocean! You can see the jellyfish in the sand if you keep your eyes open.
What bird droppings?

Most of the nightlife for breakers is around Seabreeze Blvd. & A1A. The two largest clubs in that area are Razzles & 600 North. There's a website for you:

The cops are always around during any special event in Daytona. Just use common sense (don't drink in public, keep your clothes on, etc.) & the cops won't bother you.

Sunshinegirl - regarding the bird droppings... There was a bacteria notice for several weeks because the birds took over the beach and the **** from them was causing the bacteria levels to be too high. They were telling people on the news and in the paper to not walk on the beach or go in the water.

And the beach for a while was FILLED with jelly fish. Literally everywhere! It was disgusting there were so many in every direction you looked. They weren't in the sand, they were covering the whole beach. If you read the local paper they had articles and pictures of it...

But...I'm happy to report that I was just there this last weekend and everything has cleared up! It's back to its beautiful self! You can enjoy it now. The water will be just fine in the spring. There are people surfing and swimming in it now! I was in it on Christmas day. It was a litte cold that day. But right now it's cold for the first few minutes when you hit it, then it's fine.

The weather has been great, the beach is great... YOu'll love it.

And I call myself "reading" the News-Journal and watching Wendy every day! How could I have missed that?
As far as swimming in the Atlantic, I rarely go in before July. Guess I have the thin-blood (or sissy) syndrome from growing up here!

Ha Ha.. thanks guys for you help and input. We are all super excited about our Spring Break trip, and i'm sure it will be a lot of fun. Do you know if those clubs let you in under 21? We're all mostly 20, a few of us are 21 but not everyone. Also do you know if they boarded up the balconies on the hotels this year? My dad recalls from his "back in the day" Spring Breaks that they used to do that to keep drunk college kids from falling off.

I seem to remember them letting 18 - 20 year olds in and giving them a different wristband than the 21 and over, so they couldn't buy booze, but check out that website, it might tell you.
