Things to Do:
The most popular attraction at Daytona Beach is the infamous Boardwalk!
This walkway covers 23 miles of beach, while leading you to many shops and restaurants in town.
There are many wildlife preserves in Daytona.
If dolphins and manatee’s sound like good companions, head over to Wilbur Rose Paddling Trail to kayak or paddle boat with marine life.
For a more romantic night, watch the sunset from the top of Ponce Inlet, the tallest lighthouse in Florida.
The view is definitely worth the tiring 203-stair climb.
And of course, the Daytona International Speedway!
Racing began in 1953 in the stadium now known as the World Center for Racing.
Hundreds of thousands of fans gather yearly to watch cars loop around a 2.5 mile track in the Daytona 500.
The stadium is a must-see!
