Besides Daytona Beach’s famous speedway and beautiful, expansive beaches, one of the city’s most iconic landmarks is the Daytona Beach Pier. The original pier was constructed entirely out of palm logs around the turn of the 20th century. It extended 600 feet into the ocean, but sadly burned down in 1920 in a devastating fire. A few years later, the remains were sold and the pier was rebuilt.
