Sure, you’ve heard about the 23 miles of expansive beaches. And yes, you’re aware of the world-famous Daytona International Speedway. As iconic and visit-worthy as these attractions are, there is so much more to Daytona Beach than you might realize at first glance. Experience a less traversed side of this unique city and live like a local for the day. Here are some hidden — and some not-so-secret — gems that will give you that local insight you’re looking for in Daytona Beach. 

Riding bicycles is a favorite pastime of locals and visitors alike in the Daytona Beach area. In addition to cruising along 23 miles of hard-packed beaches, the trail options are endless. Get a good look at the area’s wildlife, revel in waterfront views as you pedal forward, and breathe the salt air along one of these bicycle trails. 

With year-round beautiful weather, bodies of water at every turn and a geographically diverse ecosystem, Daytona Beach offers endless fishing opportunities for first-timers and pros alike. Although you’re likely most familiar with the area’s salty, sparkling blue Atlantic Ocean, there are many freshwater fishing options in the area, as well.
