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. 

DAYTONA Speedweeks Presented By AdventHealth officially kicks off the NASCAR season with an action-packed schedule of races across several different series, all leading up to the DAYTONA 500. Called “The Great American Race,” this is NASCAR's biggest, most prestigious event of the year and the season-opener to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. 

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.

Visitors don’t have to feel like they’re in a crowd everywhere they turn, because there’s plenty of elbow room for all!
