Daytona Beach Summer Vibes: Places to Visit

In addition to a world famous, 23-mile stretch of beautiful beach, Daytona Beach is home to the Daytona Beach Boardwalk, a popular promenade built in the 1920’s where visitors will discover beachside shopping, arcade games and fun foods in a variety of venues, as well as The Bandshell – an iconic music venue which hosts free concerts all summer long. Its Main Street Pier, built in the late 1800’s, extends 1,000 feet over the ocean and offers rides including a roller coaster, Ferris wheel and go-carts.

Or visit Sunglow Pier with access to Crabby Joe’s Deck and Grill where you can start your day with crab cake benedict or end it with fresh seafood off the grill and a calypso rum cooler during its 4-6 pm daily happy hour.

Daytona Sun Splash Park, with a freshwater splash pad, picnic pavilions, playgrounds, restrooms, showers and 600 feet of beachfront access, is open daily from sunrise to sunset (with the exception of December, January and February).

And don’t miss Daytona Lagoon, Daytona’s premier waterpark and entertainment center open March through September with year-round access to 18-hole miniature golf and rides. Daytona Lagoon was recently remodeled for the 2002 season, so go enjoy some thrill rides, chill pools and its mega-arcade!

There is so much to do in Daytona Beach, including exploring its historic district, museums, parks and a wide array of lively bars and clubs.
