The Daytona 500 is over, but there are plenty of other fun things to do at America’s original sunshine escape!
Near Ocean Center, you’ll enjoy the Daytona Beach Pier, an historic attraction that recently reopened after a $5 million restoration, and the Boardwalk.
Check out the Riverfront Shops of Daytona Beach to see more than 60 shops, restaurants, attractions, and services, plus an exceptional Saturday Farmers’ Market. It’s on Beach Street between Bay Street & Orange Avenue.
Climb 203 steps (it’s worth it!) to the top of Ponce De Leon Inlet Lighthouse—a National Historic Landmark. There’s a chocolate factory: visit Angell and Phelps Chocolate Factory. Feeling athletic? How about the Florida Tennis Center, the largest clay court facility in Central Florida.
And the Daytona Beach Symphony Society is presenting a rare staging of the epic ballet, Moscow Festival Ballet’s Giselle, on Friday, Feb. 26, 2016, at The Peabody.
