Daytona Beach Vacations
Your Daytona Beach vacation
NASCAR fans aren't the only ones geared up for Daytona Beach travel. Though best known for its speedway, this beach town puts vacation in overdrive. From its 23 miles of beaches -- with designated driving zones -- to golf and water sports, Daytona is an outdoors paradise. Catch a charter to battle tarpon or redfish. Play 18 at LPGA International. Kayak through pristine waters with dolphin, manatees and gators. Tour the speedway made famous by Petty and Earnhardt. Enjoy a fresh grouper sandwich at a waterside cafe.

Daytona Beach highlights
Grab your sunglasses and waterproof SPF for the "World's Most Famous Beach." Cruise the hard-packed sand by car (or by foot) to see 23 miles of swimmers, surfers, joggers and cyclists. Sunbathe between dips in the ocean.
Daytona International Speedway
The massive World Center of Racing hosts two major NASCAR events per year – the Daytona 500 in February and Coke Zero 400 in July. Speedway tours are conducted year-round. Get in the driver's seat (literally) at the Richard Petty Driving Experience for high-octane laps around the track.
Head to this scenic beach town located on the southern tip of the peninsula. View the tallest lighthouse in Florida and the Marine Science Center, which rehabilitates injured sea turtles and birds. Ponce marinas offer inshore and offshore fishing charters. Follow rustic signs to Inlet Harbor Marina Restaurant for a Grouper Reuben sandwich and ice-cold beer in a waterfront setting.
Ocean Walk Shoppes
Hit this oceanfront entertainment plaza, especially at night. The plaza houses a cinema complex, night clubs, shops and popular restaurants such as Bubba Gump Shrimp Factory, Johnny Rockets and Sloppy Joe's.
Golfers have their choice of numerous challenging courses in Daytona Beach, but you'll want to play at least one round at the LPGA's national hub. The two courses -- Legends and Champions -- are lush, scenic and challenging.
Museum of Arts and Sciences
Escape an afternoon drizzle (there's plenty in summer) in one of the largest museums in Florida. View the largest collection of Cuban art outside of Cuba and a massive 13-foot tall Giant Ground Sloth fossil. Kids will love the hands-on activities (tennis ball launchers, microscopes, laser harps) at the Charles and Linda Williams Children's Museum.
Tomoka State Park
Few Florida parks highlight the state's natural beauty like this former Timucuan Indian settlement on the shores of the Tomoka River. Rent a canoe or kayak, walk nature trails or fish from shore. The park has expansive camping facilities as well.
Daytona Beach Flea and Farmers' Market
Voted one of the top flea markets in the country by Travel Channel, this sprawling market (open Friday through Sunday) sells everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to designer clothes, art, jewelry and luggage, and attracts over two million shoppers per year.
Daytona Beach Kennel Club and Poker Room
Visitors and locals alike flock nightly to this traditional Florida-style attraction, which moved from its aging structure into sparkling new digs. Grab your lady luck and spend an afternoon (or evening) betting on the dogs, or make it a late night in the Poker Room, which is open 24 hours on weekends.
Jackie Robinson Ballpark
Triple-A Montreal Royals player Jackie Robinson broke the Major League Baseball color barrier in this historic, riverfront ballpark on March 17, 1946. These days, locals and summer visitors fill the bleachers to root for the Single-A Daytona Cubs.
