World’s Largest Jeep P̶a̶r̶a̶d̶e̶  Beach Cruise

Sunday Beach Cruise

What: World’s Largest Jeep P̶a̶r̶a̶d̶e̶ ̶ Beach Cruise, Ever!

When: Sunday at Jeep Beach 2017-  0647 AM April 30th.

Where: World’s Most Famous Beach, Daytona Beach, Florida

Background:  Sunday Mornings at Jeep Beach have historically meant one thing.  Crack of Dawn, Beach Parade with thousands of your closest Jeep friends.  Unfortunately a few years back the combination of unfavorable tide schedules and the extreme popularity of this unique experience made continuing the traditional Beach Parade untenable.

So we called in the geeks. We assembled a team of NASA scientists , University Professors from all the top educational institutions worldwide, Silicon Valley’s most talented problem solvers and some guy named Bob, and gave them one mission.  Figure out how to get 3,000+ beach loving Jeepers on the World’s Most Famous Beach at the same time, without bringing the entire area to a standstill.

With that Jeep Beach 2017 announces the return of the Sunday morning Beach P̶a̶r̶a̶d̶e̶ ̶ Cruise with a new approach to ensure success!

  • Partnering with, the Beach Patrol, the beach ramps will be open starting at 0643am Sunday morning
  • Beach access will be FREE from 0643 to 0800. If you get on the beach before 0800 there is no cost.  At 0801 normal beach toll prices are in effect
  • Volusia County will have representatives selling Beach Passes at all Jeep Beach events throughout the week, so if you don’t want to get up at 0643am you can buy a pass in advance and join the Parade Cruise at your leisure
  • Beach Patrol will have most of the ramps open from International Speedway Blvd to Dunlawton Blvd Sunday morning.
  • Designated Jeep Beach Beach Access Gates:
    • International Speedway Blvd.

Jeep Beach thanks the Beach Patrol for working with us this year to make this BeachP̶a̶r̶a̶d̶e̶ ̶ Cruise work. Please be mindful that the Beach is a State Highway and all rules of the road apply.  We need everyone’s full cooperation so that this can be a success and we can do it again in the future!
