Water is everywhere in Volusia County, so sometimes we take for granted just how fun and beautiful the beaches are! There’s a reason Daytona Beach is known as “The World’s Most Famous Beach,” the 23 miles of beaches have something for everyone in the family whether it be surfing, fishing, parasailing, tanning in the sun or playing in the sand.
Playing all day in the sun is sure to leave you and your family famished, refuel from your day out at one of the many delicious restaurants that Daytona Beach has to offer. Whether you are craving filet mignon, fresh seafood, or just a good American cheeseburger, Daytona Beach has you and your taste buds covered.
Once you’re done with dinner you can catch a free live summer concert at the Daytona Beach Bandshell on Saturday nights through September 25 starting at 7:15 p.m. followed by fireworks at 9:45 p.m. The historic coquina amphitheater is the perfect location to enjoy the sights and sounds of summer.
Need a place to stay? Grab a room at the Hilton Daytona Beach, where you can always find a great view of the waves and are in walking distance of the Daytona Beach’s world-famous boardwalk and Daytona Lagoon’s premier waterpark, Daytona Lagoon.
Daytona Lagoon is the perfect place to cool down and have a blast during your staycation. Looking for a way to cool down? The water park portion of Daytona Lagoon offers plenty of fun in the form of thrilling rides including Kraken’s Revenge and the Shaka Half Pipe. If you’re looking for a more relaxing experience, float around on the lazy river and unwind while the little ones enjoy Castaway Bay. For some “dry fun” try your hand at the mega arcade. Once you get your fill, pick up some putters and enjoy 18 holes of miniature golf. Looking for something a little more competitive? Try laser tag with your friends or a race on go-karts. No matter what, there is plenty of fun to be had all located in Daytona Beach.
Daytona Beach offers many fun activities for families to ensure that your staycation is the best one yet! Check out the waterpark calendar to plan your visit to Daytona Lagoon: https://daytonalagoon.com/calendar-wet/
