Daytona Guide

Daytona is most famous for the Daytona 500 motor race but also for the annual ‘Speed Weeks’ where petrol heads get together to see their favourite vehicles speed around the track. The beach is also a great attraction despite it being mainly of hard packed sand. There are numerous fascinating museums including one celebrating the art of photography and another combining Hispanic art with scientific discoveries from the region. Having a fabulous climate means that there are numerous parks where you can enjoy yourself with Sun Splash County Park being the most popular.


Daytona Directions

Although Daytona has its own small airport, the convenience of flying into Orlando and making the hour long drive to Daytona is more than made up for by not having to take a connecting flight as you can get direct flights from the UK to Orlando.

At a better price but for still an excellent hotel is the Emerald Shores Hotel which costs around $40 a night and is again, right on the waterfront.

Daytona Info

Daytona was once the property of hill dwelling Native Americans until the British began their rule there. Various attempts to farm it failed and it was only with the coming of the railroad that it began to thrive. In the thirties it was found that cars could race along the hard packed sand of the beach and informal races soon became regular events. Public safety and the size of the events led to a racetrack being built which now hosts the world famous Daytona 500.

Daytona Trivia:
  • Daytona hosts the NASCAR race ‘The Daytona 500’ a five hundred mile epic
  • Traditionally, the hard packed sand of the beach allowed for car racing on the sand
  • Daytona is the principle city on Florida’s ‘Fun Coast’
  • The city had two false starts in the 19th century when first a plantation there was burnt to the ground and a second one which closed due to financial difficulties
