Get revved up for your Daytona Beach vacation

A Daytona Beach vacation rental is about 4 things—sun, sea, sand, and speed. As the motor sports capital of the United States, this peppy city on Florida's Atlantic Coast hosts a string of NASCAR and motorcycle events throughout the year, attracting legions of gasoline-fragranced enthusiasts. It's like Mad Max, only everyone's nice, the food is good, and your vacation rental is more likely to be in a chic beach condo than an old shipping container in the desert. And while racing is big round here, the beaches, museums, water parks, and nightlife mean there's so much more to Daytona Beach.

Motor on down to the beach for the Daytona Beach experience

Shades and sunscreen at the ready, because with more than 20 miles of beaches, Daytona Beach really lives up to its name. The swimming and sunbathing are great, and like all good oceanfront resorts, there's a boardwalk with shops and amusements. Daytona Beach hosts a year-round program of festivals and events, including music, food, and of course, racing. Come February, that roaring of engines can only mean 1 thing—the Daytona 500 is the most famous motor race on U.S. soil, and NASCAR fans descend from across the States and beyond to get their petrol-powered kicks.

Do you feel the need... the need for speed?

There are plenty of prizes on offer in Daytona, but none for guessing what the premier attraction is. The Daytona International Speedway is the stuff of motor sports legend, with NASCAR and bike races taking place regularly throughout the year. For more family-friendly thrills, there's Daytona Lagoon Water Park, with slides, rides, and go-karts so future NASCAR champions can get a bit of practice in. All this adrenaline is all well and good, but for more cultural adventures on your Daytona Beach vacation rental, try the Museum of Arts and Sciences, one of the largest of such institutions in the area.

Spring break's great, but so's summer, fall, and winter, too

Ah, Florida. The so-called "sunshine state" has 1 of the friendliest climates on this great earth, and a Daytona Beach vacation rental is no exception. There are 2 basic seasons—summer is hot and humid, with brief but impressive rainstorms on a daily basis, and winters are warm and dry. Unlike many Florida hotspots, which see seasonal surges in vacationers, the steady stream of events at the Speedway means folk show up all through the year. The city's also popular with spring breakers, so depending on how lively you like your vacation, this might affect the timing of your visit.

Is there anywhere in Daytona beach you can't take a car?

Daytona Beach is cosied up on 1 of the loveliest stretches of the Florida Coast, looking out onto the Atlantic Ocean. Unusually, a lot of the beach is made up of hard-packed sand, meaning there are some areas where you can even drive on it. The sea is teeming with marine life, and while some travelers will be keen to break out the rods and reels, others will be more interested in looking out for Florida's famous dolphins. And it's not all about the saltwater either. Daytona Beach's inland waterways, rivers, and creeks are popular with wildlife watchers and kayakers alike.
