Great weather, convenience and world-class golf await you in the Daytona Beach area, one of Florida’s fastest growing golf destinations.
The area is covered in famous fairways designed by the legends of the sport.
Ready to drive some new fairways? Daytona Beach’s close proximity to Orlando and Central Florida attractions makes it an easy 2-3 day escape - and discounted golf packages offer unrivalled rates. You’ll discover outstanding courses that offer challenges for every skill level. It’s why Golf Digest ranked Daytona Beach in the nation’s top 15 places to play.
Want to play where the pros play? The LPGA International hosts events throughout the year and offers two championship courses, both recipients of a four-star rating from Golf Digest. The signature Rees Jones course offers 7,088 yards of links-style play, while the Arthur Hills-designed course will challenge you with generous water and sand hazards.
Other area courses also offer pro-worthy play, such as Indigo Lakes, consistently honoured as one of Florida’s top 10 courses by GolfWeek Magazine. Tee off surrounded by majestic live oaks and see a wealth of wildlife at the DeBary Golf & Country Club, a National Audubon Society-certified bird sanctuary. Or revel in the scenic fairways of the Pelican Bay Golf Club.
Why Daytona Beach?
As the Original American Beach, Daytona Beach has been a favourite for decades. From 23 miles of sparkling coastline to boardwalk rides, water slides and everything in between, a fun-filled playground awaits to make holiday time the best time ever.
On Daytona Beach, splashing in the waves and building sandcastles is just the beginning. The fun continues just steps away on the boardwalk and pier, boasting a variety of amusements including a roller coaster, go karts, arcades and street performers. Indulge in everyone’s favourite: pizza and ice cream -- or dine on the pier at Joe’s Crab Shack where the seafood is as delightful as the oceanfront view.
Venture to one of many beachfront parks to mix your day at the beach with spotting wildlife as you stroll nature trails and enjoy scenic views from observation towers. For a park experience unlike any other, head to Tuscawilla Park, home to Zoom Air Adventure Park Daytona Beach, where you can zip line through the treetops on one of their aerial adventure courses. Keep your adrenaline rush going at the Daytona Lagoon Waterpark Entertainment Centre, where water slides, flume and raft rides and Grand Prix go-kart racing will take your breath away. And don’t miss the Speedway Tours at world-famous Daytona International Speedway. You’ll see the facility’s $400 million re-imagining project in progress!
For some excitement that’s also educational, don’t miss the Museum of Arts & Sciences, a Smithsonian Institute affiliate offering a 9,300-square-foot children’s museum, planetarium shows and a nature preserve. Next door is the all-new Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art, the largest collection of Florida art in the world.
Another fascinating learning experience awaits at the Marine Science Centre, where you can touch sharks and stingrays, hold see urchins and see newly-hatched sea turtles.
