Daytona beach holidays on Florida’s Atlantic Coast are all about day’s spent soaking up the sun on the gorgeous beaches and lively boardwalk, but you can expect plenty of action and adventure thrown into the mix too. Think exciting day trips, world-famous attractions and fun for the whole family.
The beach here is famous for its Daytona International Speedway, which hosts the iconic annual Daytona 500 in February, plus the Motorsports Hall of Fame. Not a NASCAR fan? No fear, there’s plenty more to occupy you on this 20-mile-long stretch, a major attraction being the Daytona Beach Boardwalk that fringes the seafront, buzzing with amusements, gift shops, arcades, a Ferris wheel and waterfront restaurants.
Nature lovers looking to explore the area can hire a bike and head for what’s known as the Ormond Scenic Route – a 30-mile-long stretch which passes through places of natural beauty, including Tomoka State Park. Or why not head to The Halifax River (which runs through the city of Ormond Beach and Daytona Beach) which serves up splash-worthy watersports, fishing and sightings of eagles and even manatees - other fishing spots include Ormond Beach’s Ames Park. Fishing and racing aren’t the only sport you’ll find that’s popular here though, with numerous golf courses dotted around the resort too including LGPA International on Daytona Beach itself, plus others available on Ormond Beach, New Smryna Beach and Port Orange beach – ideal if you want to practise your swing when you step off the sands.
