Local Seasons:

 

With so many nationally and internationally known events taking place in this seaside Florida city, every time is a great time for a visit.  Bikeweek and Spring Break take place in March and you can expect great crowds, great weather and great fun.  Daytona is known for its beach and its races.   It’s been a favorite of vacationers for over 100 years.  With moderate temperatures year round, there is always some site to visit, some event to attend, and some attraction to experience.  Racing fans can hear the thunder of the engines at many times during the year but February is the peak time, culminating with the Daytona 500.  The city also lets its visitors actually ride their cars on the hard-packed sands of the beach in certain areas.  What a great story to tell your friends when you return home!  Of course, any time of the year is great for working on your tan.  There is no charge to visit the beach, and the water temperature is always refreshing. No matter what time of year you visit, Daytona will welcome you with a thunderous roar.
