Enjoy the beach and more outdoors with a summer vacation in Daytona Beach. Swimming, surfing, kayaking, boating, fishing are just a few ways to play when you stay at the World’s most famous beach.


The greater Daytona Beach area has a wealth of outdoor activities to experience. Your whole gang will enjoy the 23 miles of beach with beach-side favorites such as ice cream and refreshment stands and bicycle, surfboard and boogie board rentals. Beachside parks, like Sunsplash Park, are the perfect place for an ocean-side cookout while the kids romp around the playground.

Choose from several guided boat tours that will entertain kids of all ages. Once aboard, your host will help you spot fish, birds and maybe even an alligator or a manatee. Turtle Mound Scenic Boat Tours departs by reservation from a local favorite seafood restaurant, JB’s Fish Camp in New Smyrna Beach. This pontoon tour is two hours and accommodates all ages.

Experience the adventure of a kayak or canoe tour. Paddle the shady habitat of the Spruce Creek River with Cracker Creek Canoeing where you can rent kayaks, canoes or relax on the twice-daily eco-tour.

You’ll have great stories to tell your friends back home about the one that got away. Cast a line from the Daytona Beach pier or from the Tomoka Basin. Head out to sea for a full- or half-day fishing charter with Critter Fleet in Ponce Inlet, sailing daily.
