The ocean-front metropolitan
area in central east Florida stretching 23 miles
(37km) along white sand beaches south from Ormond
Beach is known as Daytona Beach, America’s
favourite family beach holiday destination. Greater
Daytona encompasses the towns of Holly Hill, South
Daytona, Port Orange, Ponce Inlet, Daytona Beach
Shores and all of Volusia and Flagler Counties,
all of which are dedicated to making the area
an unequalled vacationers paradise.
Without moving from
the sands at Daytona Beach you can surf, jet ski,
go boating, parasailing, feast on hot dogs and
cotton candy, go fishing, bicycling, fly a kite
and even take a drive in a hired beach buggy.
Daytona’s hard-packed sands have provided
fun for speedsters ever since the early years
of the 20th century when daredevils like Sir Malcolm
Campbell set and broke records on the beach. Today
beach-cruising is still permitted along an 18-mile
(29km) section of the beach during daylight, but
the speed limit is a strict 10 miles per hour
(16km/h): speeding is reserved for the world-famous
Daytona International Speedway where the annual
Daytona 500 Nascar race is held.
With so much to do on
the beach, it is difficult to find time to move
off it, but those who do are greeted with numerous
recreational facilities and attractions in the
string of towns along the intracoastal waterway
and on the mainland. From archaeological sites
to mini-golf, museums to haunted houses, and planetariums
to chocolate factories there is never a dull moment
in Daytona Beach.
Best of all, Daytona
Beach is within easy day-trip distance of Orlando
with its thrilling Walt Disney World, Sea World,
Universal Studios and Epcot Center, to name only
a few of the city’s world-famous attractions.
Also just an hour’s drive away is the Kennedy
Space Center. Little wonder that this versatile
vacation station receives an estimated eight million
visitors a year.
