Destination guide

Beachfront living in Port Orange

Scenic coastal drives and leafy botanical gardens combine to make this enclave of wild Daytona Beach something of a surprise. Yes, the petrol heads and roaring 500 races of the Speedway continue to magnetize bikers and patched-jacket-touting Dennis Hopper types just to the north of town, but here the Port Orange vacation rentals are more about beautiful morning views of the Atlantic, family fun on the Ponce Inlet, boating excursions, and long walks over the dunes. And on the bright side – you're never too far from the hedonistic neon bars and biker joints of Seabreeze Boulevard.

Things to do

Gardens and lighthouses in Port Orange

Oceanfront Port Orange vacation rentals position you perfectly for a real Sunshine State extravaganza of sand and sea – you'll be just meters from the powdery white shoreline that fringes the whole town. If you can pull yourself away from that main attraction, then the patchwork of fern blooms and cypress trees, crooked barns and historic refining equipment at the Sugar Mill Gardens promises a taste of local culture. Or, you can hop in the car and drive the scenic Lighthouse Loop, which wiggles around the pretty reaches of the Ponce Inlet.

Activities

Port Orange mixes motor fumes with family fun

Adrenaline need pumping? NASCAR's fabled home is just to the north. Think about hitting town in February to roar on the Great American Race with the thousands of other speedsters aimed at Daytona. Alternatively, you could stick to the more wholesome delights of little Port Orange itself. Days of beachcombing, dips in the Atlantic, pontoon outings along the Ponce Inlet, scenic drives to see historic lighthouses, horse-riding excursions along the creeks, and fishing charters all share the menu. There's enough to fill a whole vacation.

Weather

Port Orange peaks with the Speedway

If you're looking to blow away the cobwebs and rumble with the purring engines of the Daytona 500, or just hit the biker bars of wild Daytona Beach, then there's really no better time to head here than the late winter or spring. Proceedings begin with the famous 500 Speedweeks in February, and continue on until spring break in March. Summer can be stiflingly hot, but the fall and early winter are top times to book Port Orange vacation rentals that won't break the bank, and to get the white-sand beaches all to yourself.

Natural features

Port Orange clutches the Halifax River

The bulk of Port Orange spreads out on the western side of the Halifax River, even if some of the most handsome Port Orange vacation rentals make their home along the sand dunes that line the beach on its eastern side. There's a long stretch of white-hued sand that runs the whole length of the town there, offering sunrise viewing, splashing Atlantic waves, and chances to see dolphins. Inland reveals another wilderness altogether. Starting with Tiger Bay, it goes all the way to Ocala National Forest in a mosaic of wetlands, sand pine scrubs, and alligator-peppered creeks.
