An iconic beach destination with 23 miles of beautiful coastline and spectacular events throughout the year, Daytona Beach is the cornerstone of the “Fun Coast” region of Florida.
Daytona 500, the most prestigious race in NASCAR, is Daytona’s largest and most celebrated event of the year. There are hundreds of merchandise and food vendors outside the racetrack and spectacular pre-race entertainment on the field. This recently renovated race venue also hosts the Coke Zero 400 July 4th weekend, the Country 500 Festival with live performances from some of country music’s biggest stars throughout Memorial Day weekend, and so much more!
If music is your thing, don’t worry. Daytona offers a variety of options, including the three-day Daytona Blues Festival in October, and Daytona Beach Bandshell, a scenic, historic music venue providing free beachside concerts throughout the year.
Daytona Beach is also famous for its motorcycle rallies, when Main Street is filled with the low rumble of hundreds of bikes, the sound of live bands and vendors galore. There’s Bike Week in March and Biketoberfest in the fall.
Sports enthusiasts can take in a Tortuga’s baseball game throughout the season at the Jackie Robinson Ball Park. Festivals account for a lot of the fun here in Daytona too. There’s the Celtic Festival, Fiesta Italiana, the Greek Festival and Festival of the Arts. Halifax Art Festival, the second oldest continual art festival in Florida, featuring hundreds of artisans from across the country in early November is also a must-see. Later in November, on Thanksgiving weekend, Daytona Beach hosts the largest classic car show and swap meet in the United States – the Turkey Run.
The holidays are also a magical time. Just for instance…the Stetson Mansion Christmas Spectacular goes all out with gorgeous display. Then, ring in the New Year with an extravagant New Year’s Eve Celebration on Main Street.
