Known as party central for college spring breakers or a hangout for leather-clad motorcyclists, Daytona Beach might seem a somewhat intimidating destination. Put your preconceived notions aside and allow us to introduce you to another side of Daytona. In recent years the city has made a huge effort to change its image. This is evident in the multi-million dollar clean-up and renovation of the beachfront area which includes Ocean Walk Village. This exclusive development of hotels, restaurants and shops boasts its own Caribbean-themed water park. In addition, a number of child-oriented museums and theme parks have opened, drawing more families to the area. A hot spot for racing enthusiasts, the Daytona International Speedway is home to NASCAR and hosts the Daytona 500, the Pepsi 400 and other well-known events. Golf, fishing, strolling the boardwalk and relaxing on the beach with a good book are also popular Daytona pastimes. Less
