Top Sights in Daytona Beach

Motorsports Hall of Fame

Make the most of your visit to the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America by attending the Annual Inductee Ceremony held every March. Different ticket packages can be purchased for the event that includes meeting the incoming Hall of Fame Inductee Class during a gourmet lunch or partaking in a special Q & A session with the racers. The most thrilling experience is the induction banquet and ceremony where you’re invited to celebrate with the inductees at a private party with cocktails, dinner, and dancing.

The Casements

On Ormond Beach just north of Daytona is an impressive, yet surprisingly modest looking oceanfront home. Today, the Casements is where one of the wealthiest men in history, John D. Rockefeller, or “Neighbor John” as he liked to be called, would spend his days practicing golf and entertaining buddies such as Henry Ford and Thomas Edison. The restored historic landmark is now a community gathering center offering classes, workshops, and special events.

Daytona Beach Ale Trail

Calling all craft beer experts! The Daytona Beach Ale Trail is your next stop for discovering Florida’s tastiest beers and ales. Each micro-brewery has its own unique flavor, both in terms of beverages and the social atmosphere. A few breweries offer delicious bites to snack on, while others encourage you to support their neighbors with a visit to the eatery next door. The Ale Trail is the best way to enjoy a fresh Florida beverage that was made with the heart and soul of its patron.

Top Experiences in Daytona Beach

Sink Your Line for Some Seafood

You can truly do it all and have a ball at the Daytona Beach Pier and Boardwalk. Dating back to 1925, this local landmark is most famous for fishing. Requiring no fee or license, visitors can be seen lowering their lines every day of the year. And if your hunger can’t stand the wait, you can visit any of the seafood restaurants along the pier and order a plate of the freshest catch of the day.

Listen to Your Favorite Music on the Beach

Daytona Beach in the summer isn’t just for laying out and getting a tan. It’s also for listening to great music during the Daytona Beach Bandshell Concert Series. Every Friday and Saturday night from May through September, the historic amphitheater on Ocean Avenue plays host to numerous tribute bands playing classics from Van Halen and Aerosmith to Johnny Cash and U2. What makes this one of the more popular family friendly Daytona attractions is that children ages 10 and under are invited to attend for free.

Racers of a different breed descend upon Daytona for Bike Week in March and Biketoberfest in October. Whether you own your own motorcycle or not, there’s two-wheeling fun and bike-themed attractions to be had at both events. From live music to professional competitions mixed in with Florida’s best scenic rides, these biker rallies are some of the best Daytona activities to be experienced all year round.
