Living In Daytona Beach 

29°12′N 81°2′W

Set against balmy breezes and anchored by miles of clean, hard-packed white sand, Daytona Beach was dubbed "The World's Most Famous Beach" in the early 1900s. Located on the east coast of Central Florida, Daytona Beach is internationally known for its racing roots, hosting some of the largest motorsports events in the world including the Daytona 500, also known as the "Great American Race."

The climate in Daytona Beach is also ideal. The area enjoys mild, year-round temperatures which range from an average of 59.3F (20.6C) in the winter to an average temperature of 78.5F (30.4C) in the summer.

So whether it's watching a fast-paced sporting event, a relaxing stroll on the beach, or anywhere in between, Daytona Beach can accommodate many different speeds and lifestyles. [1]

Visiting Daytona Beach

Tourists and residents alike treasure our cheery brand of southern hospitality. The nearly 500,000 residents in the Daytona Beach metro area and 10 million visitors enjoy moderate weather, quality educational choices, exceptional recreational activities, an active arts community, and, of course, one of the most beautiful, family-friendly beaches in Florida.

Daytona Beach is the ideal destination for friends, families, and race fans looking for modern resorts, thrilling amusement rides, breathtaking beaches, and one of the most famous race tracks in America.

The most well-known and sought-after destinations in Daytona Beach are the Daytona International Speedway and the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America. The Daytona International Speedway complex, known as “The World Center of Racing,” occupies 500 acres of land, making it very hard to miss. A recent $400 million upgrade added luxury suites, more-spacious seats, and new concessions for race fans. If you’re more of a thrill-seeker and want to get a taste of the Daytona 500, check out the 200-mile-per-hour Richard Petty Driving Experience.

Whether you decide to come during the Daytona 500, for spring break, or for bike week, the 23-mile stretch of pristine beaches will be waiting for you. Refresh yourself in the surf or soak up the sun on the sand, where certain areas are marked off for pedestrians and cars so you can bring your personal car onto the beach! 

After a $10 million restoration, the Daytona Beach Pier reopened to the public with the addition of a Joe’s Crab Shack and nearby amusement park rides. Test your limits with the giant slingshot ride. If thrill-seeking is not your thing, try the old-school arcade area where you can play the ever-popular Skee Ball and collect tickets in return for prizes.

At Daytona Beach, you’ll discover family-friendly entertainment of all kinds. Check out the hands-on exhibits at the Charles and Linda Williams Children’s Museum at The Museum of Arts and Sciences, where you’ll find a state-of-the-art planetarium show and a hands-on children’s area. 

If that doesn’t satisfy your art craving, head over to the Daytona Beach Bandshell in the city’s Oceanfront Park. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, and seating up to 5,000 people, the bandshell is home to a summer concert series where you can hear live music on select dates from May through September. After every concert, sit back and enjoy a firework show over the water.

Spend from dawn to dusk sightseeing at some of Daytona Beach's most memorable landmarks — all in just 60 seconds. [3]
