I’m considering moving to Daytona Beach. I know it’s a common Spring Break destination, but what else is there to do in the area?

While it's true that Daytona Beach is famous for its 23 miles of white, sandy beaches there is also plenty of other attractions and activities to keep you busy! Full-time residents can kick back in their beach chairs and swim in the clear blue water while enjoying an average summer temperature of just 78 degrees! Fun fact: cars are even permitted in designated areas of the beach from sunrise to sunset. The Daytona Beach Boardwalk Amusement Area and Pier feature a roller coaster, a Ferris wheel, restaurants and more. Adults and children alike also love all of the water activities available in a beachside city such as surfing, parasailing and “banana boat rides.”

Need some more convincing before you begin searching for apartments in Daytona Beach? Put on some comfy walking shoes and get ready for a day of shopping at the Volusia Mall. With four departments and over 120 specialty shops you're sure to snatch up some great deals. The Daytona Beach Riverfront Shops are also worth a visit, with quaint stores and top-rated restaurants featuring fresh seafood and international flavors.

The Cellar Restaurant, located in the basement of President Warren G. Harding's former home, serves up fine Italian cuisine and has been recognized as one of the top 100 restaurants in the United States for its service and romantic atmosphere. In the mood for some home-style cooking? Check out the Dancing Avocado Kitchen – a family-owned restaurant cooking up breakfast favorites like their shrimp avocado omelet.

Apartments in Daytona Beach offer residents the chance to enjoy the beautiful Florida weather and beaches during the day and to celebrate at night with live music and dancing at local bars and nightclubs.

A popular attraction is the Jackie Robinson Memorial Ballpark, where the famous baseball player played his first exhibition game as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers farm club on March 17, 1946. Another sport-related destination, the Daytona International Speedway, offers tours to loyal NASCAR fans. The 480-acre motorsport facility is home to the DAYTONA 500 – the biggest stock car race in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Families have fun at the Daytona Lagoon, featuring a go-kart raceway, laser tag, miniature golf, an arcade and a water park complete with slides and a “lazy river.” Daytona Beach provides its residents and visitors with an endless array of things to do and interesting sites to see.
