3. Beach Cruising

Beach cruisers, the bicycles are one totally enjoyable way to experience Daytona Beach. But the cruising isn’t just for the bicycles. Daytona Beach is amongst the few beaches that allows cars to drive on the sand. So roll down the windows, que the Bob Marley, and take it all in! Beach carts, electric bikes, or scooters are all fun ways to get around on Daytona Beach.

4. Surf’s Up

The east coast of Florida is known for it’s slightly bigger, more powerful waves in comparison to the west coast. So what does this mean for travelers? Surf’s up, dudes! Get your adrenaline flowing with a unique Daytona Beach surf lesson or grab a body board and hit the waves. And if the water is calm, stand up paddle boarding will have to feeling on top of the ocean world!

 

5. The Open Seas

If you want to see the sandy shoreline and ocean waves from another perspective, a fishing charter is a fun way to take to sea. If you’re lucky, you may even bring back fish dinner. Doesn’t get an fresher than that!

 

Oh, and did we forget to mention that you can GET MARRIED on the beach?!
