The iconic seaside destination of Daytona Beach once supported sugar mill plantations, but now entertains up to 8 million visitors a year.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Sholom Park and Andy Romano Beachfront Park. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church and Mary Bethune Home. Change things up with these side-trips from Daytona Beach: Ravine Gardens State Park (in Palatka), Merritt Island (Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge & Black Point Wildlife Drive) and Crescent Beach Public Beach (in Crescent Beach). And it doesn't end there: pause for some photo ops at Jackie Robinson Ballpark and Statue, tour the pleasant surroundings at Beach at Daytona Beach, join the crowd at Richard Petty Driving Experience, and look for gifts at Angell & Phelps Chocolate Factory.
