What comes to mind when you hear Daytona Beach?  Is it racing, hotels or condos, or beaches?

Daytona Beach Oceanside Main EntranceIf you are a regular guest at Daytona Beach, Fla. then you probably come for a specific purpose.  I make trips there occasionally and it seems the main reason is the beach.  The beautiful white sandy beach is a natural attraction and you can still drive your vehicle on it – compared to many other beaches in Florida.

And yes, there is racing too.  I’ll talk about racing in another blog later.

The separate towns of Daytona, Daytona Beach and Seabreeze merged to form Daytona Beach in 1926. In the 1920s, the city became known as The World’s Most Famous Beach.  https://wikitravel.org/en/Daytona_Beach
