Say what? Get your limes & salt shakers out.
The 6,900-home community says it will be tropical & fun.The plans include a pool with cabanas instead of a central park & statue like most towns. Music, food, beverages, an onsite fitness center, indoor lap pool, spa and an outdoor resort-style pool will be the core of this development.
William Bullock, a senior vice president with Minto, told The Daytona Beach News-Journal: “You never know when or where Jimmy Buffett may show up to do a concert. The concept for the community is Margaritaville equals fun,” Bullock said. “Having fun, socializing, enjoying the lifestyle because you’ve earned it, you’ve been waiting your whole life for it and now you’ll be able to celebrate it with food, fun and music.”
The first phase of the Latitude Margaritaville, Daytona Beach, homes are expected to be ready to move into by fall 2018. They’ll feature Old Florida and Key West architectural styles and range in price form the low $200,000s to the mid-$300,000s. They are also going to have some live broadcasts, artists unknown at this time, from there on their SiriusXM Channel.

If you have ever visited Disneyland or Disney World, then chances are you have heard “It’s A Small World”. When you take the 12-15 minute ride in the little boats that meander throughout the various lands, you hear it many times & in many languages. In my case, I have been stuck in that attraction several times with my daughters in both Florida & in California. It was their favorite ride so we rode it as many times as we could possibly fit in each visit. The more you ride, the more likely you are to get stuck. One of the fastest way to drive this mother crazy.
Fast forward 15 years and I have just purchased a new phone. My youngest daughter is helping me set up this new phone but with a few surprises unknown to me. Teenagers are so clever, aren’t they? So the first time of my daughters called me, the new phone rings with, can you guess? Yes, “It’s a Small World”!! They thought that it would drive me crazy-a short drive these days, I admit. That was 2 years ago & their little surprise has backfired because I love it. That song lets me know that it is one of my wonderful daughters calling. It brings a smile to my face every time and brings back some incredibly fun memories. It’s a blessing & a curse. LOL SO thanks, my wee one! Or should I say Merci, Muchas gracias, Vielen Dank, Σας ευχαριστώ, Grazie, 感谢您, Takk, ありがとうございました。, Obrigado, Go raibh maith agat?
It’s a world of laughter, a world of tears. It’s a world of hopes and a world of fears. There’s so much we share…and a smile means friendship to everyone
