For those who have always aspired to ride an ocean wave (and maybe even hang 10) on a surfboard, Florida’s eastern coast — with its subtropical climate and typically approachable wave sizes on the Atlantic Ocean — offers a great place to get started. And with 23 miles of expansive beaches, ride-able wave swells over a soft, shallow sandbar, and plenty of local surf shops that rent boards and offer lessons, Daytona Beach in particular is the perfect place to learn to surf. 

From the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse to sugar-mill ruins to a long, winding past in racing, the Daytona Beach area is chock full of interesting history. But historic sites and stock cars aren’t the only vintage things around these parts — Daytona Beach has a number of antique stores full of memories from ages long ago.

The sun is shining in Daytona Beach, and that can make for the most perfect summer day. While sunshine and blue skies are two of the best elements and biggest draws of the area, it’s a good idea to have a few activities in mind that’ll keep your vacation crew from getting overheated.

With its 23 miles of expansive beaches and an amazing range of fun activities on tap — truly offering something for people of all ages and interests — Daytona Beach attracts vacationers from all over the world each year.

The entertainment possibilities in Daytona Beach seem to be endless. From rocking out at beachfront Bandshell concerts to firing up a jet ski and splashing along the waterway — there’s no doubt that this is a fun vacation destination.
