Get away to the sunshine and excitement of Florida’s Daytona Beach, and choose the ideal vacation homefrom Holidu’s wide range of properties. Daytona has all kinds of accommodation options, including plenty of beachfront villas. Many come with extensive gardens, carports, pools and barbecue terraces. Some are set apart from the resort, and others are right at the center of the action.Stay in a holiday village right next to the Atlantic Ocean
When you search on the Holidu database, you’ll also come across a range of serviced properties in vacation complexes. Pick a studio apartment with Jacuzzi and a kitchen, or a waterfront cabin within a few meters of restaurants, bars and leisure amenities. It’s up to you.
Famous for its long sandy beach, the hedonism of Spring Break, and for the excitement of the Daytona500, Daytona Beach caters for a diverse vacation crowd. Consisting of a long coastal strip separated from downtown Daytona by the Halifax Lagoon, the resort attracts nightlife fans, motorsports maniacs, and families almost all year-round.Daytona is easily accessible from anywhere in the USA
Getting to Daytona is simple. Most visitors choose to fly into Daytona Beach International Airport, which is just 3 miles south of the city itself. The airport has flight connections to Atlanta, New York and Charlotte, so you may need to take a connecting flight on the way, but it’s possible to fly into Orlando and drive from there.A resort of two halves
When you arrive at a rental home in Daytona Beach, you’ll notice that the resort is really two separate cities linked by bridges across the lagoon. Everything is fairly spread out, so most visitors choose to rent a car during their stay, but VOTRAN buses also ply the seafront and run from the airport if driving isn’t an option.
Daytona’s main attraction is the famous International Speedway which hosts the annual Daytona 500 – the high point of the NASCAR calendar.A superb destination for beach lovers
Benefiting from the fantastic Floridian climate, Daytona’s beach is as inviting as they come. Surf, swim, snorkel or just lie back and soak up the rays.An excellent sporting destination
Alongside motor sports, Daytona is a great place to enjoy a round of golf, play some tennis , try horse riding, cycle or fish. There’s no end to the leisure activities on offer, so everyone can find something they love.
The hub of Daytona Beach is the Speedway, which can seat over 100,000 spectators (and even then you’ll have to book ahead for major races). NASCAR is king, but it’s far from the only attraction, with superbikes, touring cars and motocross races almost every week.2. Attend a motorbike rally
Daytona is also one of America’s great motorcycling centers. Every year, hundreds of thousands of motorbike fans gather for events like Bike Week in March, Winterjam or Biketoberfest.3. Play some golf at Daytona’s excellent courses
Golf is one of Florida’s favorite sports, and Daytona has its share of high-quality courses. If you want to hit the links, try courses like Indigo Lakes or the LPGA International, but expect a challenge.4. Relax at New Smyrna Beach
Just down the coast from Daytona, New Smyrna is always ranked among America’s finest beaches. It’s a great place to rent a fishing vessel, try some Florida seafood, tour small art galleries and perfect your tan.5. Spend the afternoon at Daytona Lagoon
Daytona’s favorite water park, Daytona Lagoon offers a peaceful lazy river, a galaxy of thrilling slides, a huge games arcade, climbing walls, laser tag, mini golf and go karting, making it the best family attraction in town.
Daytona is one of the few resorts where car parking on the beach is encouraged. In certain sections, you can park your car for a fee of $10
Daytona’s climate almost seems to have been designed for tourists, with wall to wall sunshine almost every month of the year. The vacation season really gets going around March, and lasts into November, but you might want to schedule your trip to avoid high season in July and August. With the Speedweeks at full throttle, hotels and attractions fill up, making the city less enjoyable for casual vacationers.When to visit
Spring’s a great time to go. Any time from March through to mid-May almost guarantees temperatures in the mid-70s. However, be aware that Spring Break falls in this period when the city will be full of students letting their hair down. It’s ideal for some people, but not everyone appreciates the atmosphere.Festival Capital of Florida
It might also be a good idea to time your visit around smaller events. Daytona has been dubbed the “Festival Capital of Florida”, so there’s no shortage of candidates. From the Blues Festival at New Smyrna to the Halifax Art Festival in November, you’re sure to find something in the resort’s hectic calendar.
