02 January 2020

Florida, ‘the Sunshine State’, is home to some of the best beaches in the USA. It’s the perfect spot to relax and chill out for a few days after all the jam packed action of a holiday to Orlando. Daytona Beach is one of the best beaches in Florida, a picture perfect beach side location with plenty for the whole family to do!

Daytona Beach – One of Florida’s Top Beach Destinations

Daytona Beach is one of the most famous beaches in Florida and its reputation is well deserved. Miles of sandy white beaches stretch out ahead of you with plenty of opportunities to soak up some of the famous Florida sun. There are plenty of activities to take part in at the beach both on dry land and in the sea. There are beachfront splash parks, volleyball courses, jungle gyms and cycling trails while if you prefer to get into the sea paddleboarding, surfing, kayaking and parasailing are all also available.

You’ll also find a fantastic pier and boardwalk at Daytona Beach, a real hive of activity with plenty of food and drinks options where you can sit back and enjoy a meal or sip a drink with a stunning sea view in front of you!

Daytona also offers great fishing opportunities no matter what your preference is. Offshore, coastal and inland fishing with beautiful weather year-round affords the opportunity to cast your reel in a variety of settings. Imagine saltwater fishing one day, freshwater the next and brackish on another day!

Fancy a day away from the beach? Daytona is famously home of ‘The Great American Race’ The Daytona 500, a mecca for racing fans! The 500 mile long race is regarded as one of the most prestigious in the NASCAR Cup Series. Far from just a race, it’s a full day of fun and activities. Feel the rush of the race cars as they go three-wide around the high banks of Daytona International Speedway, experience amazing, photo-worthy moments throughout the entire day such as the United States Air Force Thunderbirds flyover, visit the fanzone for driver autograph sessions and vendor displays and finish the day off at the Champion Celebration as the winner celebrates victory in front of the crowd!

Florida is also well known as a golf location and Daytona certainly is a big part of this. Boasting two, four-star courses amongst several of the courses in the area, it’s another option for a day away from the beach that will still allow you to soak up plenty of sun!
