Daytona Beach is a city on Florida's Atlantic coast. It's known for Daytona International Speedway, which hosts February's iconic Daytona 500 NASCAR race. The beach has hard-packed sand where driving is permitted in designated areas. Near the boardwalk's rides and arcades, Daytona Beach Bandshell stages free summer concerts. Steps from the beach, Daytona Lagoon water park offers go-karts, laser tag, and waterslides.

One Block off the Beach (Recommended)
Map - Streamline Hotel - Opened in 1940, the Streamline was a popular refuge for celebrities, race car drivers and even moonshine gangsters. Now, fully restored with Art Deco style and elegance, its presence pays homage to a rich history and storied past.
If our peppercorn-colored walls could talk, their most famous account would be in 1947 when Bill France Sr., numerous race car drivers, officials, and promoters gathered at our rooftop bar to discuss rules, payments and various issues affecting the sport of stock car racing.
After libations and deliberations, the meeting adjourned with a signed formation of what is now known as NASCAR, and the Birthplace of Stock Car Racing was forever cemented into our foundation.
