The Daytona Beach area has a wide variety of activities and entertainment for folks of all ages. Daytona Beach is famous for its beaches and motorsports, but the area also offers an abundance of shopping, nightlife, cultural events, and sporting activities, making it the perfect family vacation spot.
This will be the fourth consecutive year in which the 500 is scheduled for a 1 p.m. start (last season's Daytona 500, of course, turned out to be a Monday night race due to rain). It will again air on FOX and be broadcast on MRN radio.
The 72nd Annual Bike Week rolls into the Daytona Beach area on March 8-17!
Lake Macy park is across the street from The Ann Stevens house and features a fenced in picnic area with tables and Barbeques. The park is surrounded by large oak trees and has a large wooden dock overlooking the lake.
A visit to Lake Helen is a trip into the past - no super markets, loud cars, or crowded streets here.
Known as "The Gem of Florida", Lake Helen was founded by Henry Deland and named after his daughter. Intended as one of the prettiest and most pleasant towns in Florida, the residents are proud of the well preserved Victorian architecture and small-town atmosphere.
