Daytona Beach is the happy host of thousands of families each and every summer, and it offers a list of fun activities that runs as deep and wide as our beaches. From visiting Daytona International Speedway to fishing off of the pier, there’s no end to the unique attractions and fun adventures waiting to be had here. 

National Girlfriends Day is right around the corner on August 1, and yes — it is a real thing. Have you made any plans to get together with your BFFs? Daytona Beach has endless fun activities for a girls’ night (and day) out, along with some of the most beautiful natural scenery you’ll encounter. So, why not plan a trip to the coast to spend the day getting out and about with your best girlfriends right here in Daytona Beach? 

Besides Daytona Beach’s famous speedway and deep, expansive beaches, one of the city’s most iconic landmarks is the Daytona Beach Pier. The original pier constructed here was built entirely out of palm logs around the turn of the 20th century. It extended 600 feet into the ocean, but sadly burned down in 1920 in a devastating fire. A few years later, the remains were sold and the pier was rebuilt.

With mild temperatures, fewer vacationers and a host of entertaining events, fall is one of the best times to experience Daytona Beach. And, this year will feature a number of fun and family-friendly festivals to attend in the area. Whether you are an art aficionado or a classic car collector, you’ll find amusement options right up your alley.

A visit to Daytona Beach is sure to be filled with fun entertainment like family water parks, fast cars and Smithsonian-affiliated museums — but did you know that adventure can come naturally here, too?

There are few better ways to enjoy the Daytona Beach area’s ample waterway-recreation opportunities — including dozens of miles of coastal Atlantic waters and lengthy stretches of the Intracoastal Waterway — than to get out on, over and into the waters in a boat. And whether you’re looking to reel in some trophies on a fishing charter, harness the powers of the winds in a chartered sailboat or simply grab a delicious meal, Port Orange’s Adventure Yacht Harbor offers a range of options. 

The entertainment possibilities in Daytona Beach seem to be endless. From rocking out at beachfront Bandshell concerts to firing up a jet ski and splashing along the waterway — there’s no doubt that this is a fun vacation destination. 

Summertime means sun, sand and special memories here in Daytona Beach. This area proudly hosts thousands of families each and every year who come from all over the world to experience the iconic wide beaches and rich racing history. You could spend an entire vacation happily lounging on the beach with the breeze gently rustling the pages of a good book. But, for many kids, sitting still anywhere for that long can be a challenge! Luckily, Daytona Beach offers endless adventures for all ages.

As a kid, some of the very best memories are formed at summer camp. You can make new friends, dabble in a new interest or try your hand at a sport without committing to it for a year. School’s out, but the learning doesn’t have to stop!
