Daytona Beach is the home of the Daytona 500, the biggest race in NASCAR. Unfortunately, we did not get to go to a race. We did, however, see the speedway, and it was huge. It is right on the road. You basically run into it as the road dead-ends, and your only choice is to turn left or right. With that in mind if you take a left, you head straight down to the beach.
Daytona beach has tons of entertainment, and beautiful beaches. I will say that, due to Hurricane Charlie, one side of the island is basically wiped-out and deserted, however, the other side is filled with entertainment. There is a huge theater and stage that host live music performances. You just bring your lawn chairs, sit on the beach, and enjoy the music. There is also a huge outdoor mall/eatery. It has many restaurants and stores that you can eat in and still enjoy the music and atmosphere of Daytona. Daytona Beach is also know for being able to drive your car right up on the beach and begin your activity. Daytona has several activities available for your beach day entertainment as well.
