And here it is, the final city on our list of the top-10 places in Florida – you may be familiar with it for its history as a Nascar city due to its famous yearly race, the Daytona 500 held in February, but did you know that Daytona Beach is now a family destination? That’s right, the beach that was once home to wild spring breaks is now fit for the whole family to enjoy. And with 23 miles of coastline, the gorgeous swells, and the hot sun, what’s not to like?
The Daytona Boardwalk is truly a sight to be seen. With amusement rides, restaurants, shops, events and attractions, and the long famous pier that juts out into the ocean, you can spend a whole day walking up and down the boardwalk and enjoy every last minute.
And when you’re looking for a quick break from the sun, step into the Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art, home to the largest collection of Floridian art. Then, pay a visit to the Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse, which just happens to be the tallest lighthouse in the state! And obviously, if you’re in town in February for a winter get away, you just have to make it over to the Daytona 500 for an exhilarating experience of a lifetime.
