Celebrate the Season with America’s Original Beach

It’s holiday season, so take your own, personal holiday to Daytona Beach.  The Original American Beach is swimming with exciting opportunities to celebrate the season, from shopping for family and friends (and yourself!) to holiday festivals and events.

Getting all your holiday shopping is easy in Daytona Beach. Stroll with a fresh cup of coffee while browsing boutiques and searching antique shops for that perfect gift. Or get great deals at popular retailers in shopping plazas like the Volusia Mall, Ocean Walk Shoppes and Movies, The Pavilion at Port Orange and Tanger Outlets which opened November 18, 2016 just in time for the holiday season.

Looking for some heart-warming holiday fun? There are many events heating up the autumn and winter months on Daytona Beach. Check out the annual “December to Remember” festivities at The Bandshell. Light up the evening at The Halifax River Yacht Club Christmas Boat Parade and celebrate all season long with Riverfront Shops of Daytona Beach and its holiday market, kid zone, holiday musical performances and story exhibit.

Be sure to immerse yourself in the Christmas Spectacular Tours at Stetson Mansion. Or watch a live performance to get you in the spirit, like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical, Melissa Etheridge’s Holiday Trio, A Christmas Carol, The Nutcracker and more at the Peabody Auditorium. Everything kicks off November 26 with Light Up Volusia! Check the DaytonaBeach.com calendar and you can always find an amazing overview of the season’s events in our newsletter.
