Bearing the nickname "The World's Most Famous Beach," this Florida gem is known for more than just constant warm weather, retirement homes and sandy beaches. Daytona Beach caters to people of all ages and persuasions, featuring a wide selection of summer pastimes that can be enjoyed no matter what season it is. The compacted sand is what makes this beach one of The Sunshine State's most popular destinations, as it provides the perfect traction for off-road vehicles. These conditions naturally attracted racers from all around the country, prompting the construction of the Daytona International Speedway, which serves as a mecca to race fans everywhere. NASCAR got its piece of the pie after Daytona became its headquarters. This beach is also home to one of the most prominent Bike Week event in the country, attracting bikers from all over.
After the race cars and motorcycles did justice for the city, Daytona Beach earned its stripes as a city for athletes, fostering professional sports like FSL baseball and arena football. Of course, water sports come into the fold as well, as this area is ideal for strenuous activities like water-skiing, surfing and snorkeling. However, those who would rather engage in something a bit more leisurely can enjoy the many fabulous golf courses that dot the metropolitan area, including the famous Pelican Bay and Daytona Beach Golf Course. Female golfers will be pleased to know that the LPGA International headquarters is located in the city.
On the other hand, those who would rather spend money on some well-deserved souvenirs can shop their hearts out at the Volusia Mall, which is anchored by a variety of big national retailers. Better yet, Ocean Walk Shoppes is an open-air shopping center that's located right in the heart of all the action - right on the shore of the beach!
Although Daytona Beach might seem like it'd be too hot for any outdoor activity that doesn't include water, visitors might be surprised by how comfortable the cool sea breeze from the Atlantic can sometimes be. Those who are concerned about the frequency of tropical storms can take comfort in knowing that most of the city's most prominent events take place either before or after hurricane season.
