Arriving on the heels of three long, cold months of winter, the onset of spring brings a long list of welcome changes to the American landscape. Just a few of the commonly celebrated highlights include the warmer springtime weather, the pleasant return of greener hues to the leaves and grass, the bright blooms seen among our gardens and wildflowers, and a chance to get back to the fun outdoor activities we all missed while winter’s frigid temperatures kept us largely stuck indoors.

For families with school-age children, though, the spring brings another gift that, for many at least, is even more cherished and more intensely anticipated — the spring vacation! And with its pleasant subtropical weather, serene coastal scenery and abundant family-friendly attractions — not to mention its thriving arts and culture scene — Daytona Beach offers an ideal destination for a fun-filled spring family getaway.
