Each year, thousands upon thousands of racing fans flock to Daytona Beach to take in some high-octane excitement at the most iconic racetrack in motorsports — Daytona International Speedway. And, as experienced race-goers know, packing for an auto-racing event requires a bit of insider know-how, as the list of spectator must-haves for this sport differs a bit from that of other American sporting events. 

Looking for a memorable way to ring in the new year? Start 2019 off on the right foot by ringing in the holiday on a winter getaway in Daytona Beach. With warm temperatures, beach breezes, and a host of wonderful hotel and restaurant specials, Daytona Beach is the perfect place to toast to a year full of fun adventures.

One of the best things about a fall getaway by the beach is that the whole place feels serene and refreshed — as if the beach has come up for air after a summer of surfboards, sandy strolls and splashing. A couple things unique to Daytona Beach are its wide, expansive beaches and its fun downtown area, each of which tend to stay uncrowded all year long. Visitors don’t have to feel like they’re in a crowd everywhere they turn, because there’s plenty of elbow room for all! 

Are you escaping to warmer weather this winter? Daytona Beach offers a wonderfully mild climate and a wide variety of spectacular venues — and that’s the perfect combination for one rockin’ New Year’s Eve! Check out these top four spots to consider for saying farewell to 2018.

Reports of paranormal activity on this historic estate have incited a fair amount of curiosity over the years, and this year may be the one when you get some more answers.
