Put him behind the wheel of a race car — For fathers with a need for speed, the Daytona Beach area definitely offers ample reasons to get revved up. In addition to its long list of auto racing-focused attractions, the area is renowned as the home of the “World Center of Racing” — Daytona International Speedway. And it doesn’t even have to be race day for Dad to make unforgettable memories at the speedway. The NASCAR Racing Experience offers him the opportunity to ride along in — or even get behind the wheel of — a real NASCAR race car for a few laps around one of the world’s most famous tracks. TAKE TO THE TRACK
Help him make some waves — The high-speed thrills in Daytona Beach aren’t limited to the asphalt-topped track at the speedway. Fathers who are ready to tear up the surf over the ocean waves can do just that with a jet ski adventure in the Atlantic waters. Or they can open up the throttle along the Intracoastal Waterway or in one of the area’s expansive backwater estuaries. MAKE A SPLASH
Put his afternoon on the right course — For fathers who love the sport of golf, the Daytona Beach area is a sure hole-in-one.

GET INTO THE SWING OF THINGS
Let him enjoy his craft — Dads who enjoy craft beers will find plenty of locally brewed flavors to savor in Daytona Beach — and lots of variety among them. The craft offerings on the Daytona Beach Ale Trail cover beer styles ranging from wheats, lagers, and pilsners to IPAs, stouts, sours, porters, and lots more. TASTE THE ALE TRAIL
Let him kick back on the oceanfront — Of course, some fathers would prefer to spend their special day simply relaxing and taking in the coastal area’s inherent beauty.
