Fun Daytona Beach Selfie Photo Ops

Daytona Beach is as iconic as it gets. Visited by 9.8 million people annually, travelers, photographers, bloggers and vloggers all come away from a visit to the original American beach with memorable, rich images. Let this list answer one of the top questions most people ask before they visit us: where can I capture the best pictures?

These are the top places around Daytona Beach where you can capture iconic photographs:

1. Daytona Beach
With 23 miles of sandy white beaches from Ormond-By-The-Sea to Ponce Inlet, there is no shortage of opportunities to find the picture-perfect spot, by car or foot. East coast sunrises, marine life and surfers make photographing Daytona Beach beach life a simple pleasure. Sunsets are equally spellbinding. With a big-sky horizon, twilight on the beach is absolutely breathtaking!

From the iconic entrance way of the Mardi Gras Fun Center to Zeno's Boardwalk Sweet Shop, the Daytona Beach Boardwalk is where fun hits new heights. Boardwalk amusements, summer-long concerts in the historic oceanfront Daytona Beach Bandshell and easy access to the Daytona Beach Pier make it a mecca for fun photo ops and ice cream!

6. Ponce Inlet Jetty
Projecting into the Atlantic Ocean from the southernmost tip of the destination, the Ponce Inlet Jetty is a remote and beautiful spot that captures your heart. Given its remote sense of place, it is a popular destination for eco tours, fishing excursions and brides-to-be. See if you can fit the lighthouse into your selfie!

7. #JackiesDugout

A baseball fan favorite! Stop by historic Jackie Robinson Ballpark, home to the Daytona Tortugas, along the Riverwalk in downtown Daytona Beach and take a picture of yourself hanging in the painted dugout. The mural was done by Erica Group, of #DeLandWings fame.
