3 Top Summer Attractions Beyond the Beach

Posted on Friday, July 27, 2018 10:00 AM by Daytona Beach Area CVB

Daytona Beach is the happy host of thousands of families each and every summer, and it offers a list of fun activities that runs as deep and wide as our beaches. From visiting Daytona International Speedway to fishing off of the pier, there’s no end to the unique attractions and fun adventures waiting to be had here. 

National Girlfriends Day is right around the corner on August 1, and yes — it is a real thing. Have you made any plans to get together with your BFFs? Daytona Beach has endless fun activities for a girls’ night (and day) out, along with some of the most beautiful natural scenery you’ll encounter. So, why not plan a trip to the coast to spend the day getting out and about with your best girlfriends right here in Daytona Beach? 

Besides Daytona Beach’s famous speedway and deep, expansive beaches, one of the city’s most iconic landmarks is the Daytona Beach Pier. The original pier constructed here was built 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. 

There are few better ways to enjoy the Daytona Beach area’s ample waterway-recreation opportunities — including dozens of miles of coastal Atlantic waters and lengthy stretches of the Intracoastal Waterway — than to get out on, over and into the waters in a boat. And whether you’re looking to reel in some trophies on a fishing charter, harness the powers of the winds in a chartered sailboat or simply grab a delicious meal, Port Orange’s Adventure Yacht Harbor offers a range of options.

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. 

As a kid, some of the very best memories are formed at summer camp. You can make new friends, dabble in a new interest or try your hand at a sport without committing to it for a year. School’s out, but the learning doesn’t have to stop!
