Daytona Beach is full of fun and excitement all year long…
If you are a race fan, Daytona International Speedway is a must see. This spectacular and recently renovated venue is home to the Daytona 500, the most prestigious race in NASCAR. The largest combined car show and swap meet in the United States is also held at Daytona International Speedway. It’s called the Turkey Run, and it showcases over 6,000 vintage classic, muscle and race cars and trucks for show and sale, over 2,500 swap meet spaces, plus food and entertainment!
Daytona Beach is also famous for its motorcycle rallies. The streets are filled with the sound of live bands and the low rumble of hundreds of bikes during Bike Week in March and Biketoberfest in the fall.
Art and music are also a big part of Daytona Beach events. Halifax Art Festival, the second oldest continual art festival in Florida, features hundreds of artisans from across the country in early November; and Daytona Beach Bandshell, a scenic, historic music venue, provides free beachside concerts throughout the year. Daytona is even known as the “Festival Capital of Florida” because so many festivals, including the Celtic Festival, Festa Italiana, the Greek Festival and Festival of the Arts are held here.
Daytona Beach is a great place to be during the holidays too. Take a holiday tour, and ring in the New Year right with an extravagant New Year’s Eve Celebration on Main Street.
