Synonymous with College Spring Break and the Daytona 500, the 23-mile long Daytona Beach stretch on the east side of Florida is one of the most travelled to destinations in the U.S. Families flock to Daytona Beach during the off-season for a relaxing holiday, while Spring Breakers book Daytona Beach flights for the ultimate party on the beach and a chance appearance on the notorious MTV Beach House.
There’s so much do here, it’s no wonder Daytona Beach flights are packed year-round. Go surfing, jet skiing, parasailing, lounge on the beach or take a walk down the boardwalk. Rent a convertible and go cruising along the beach with the other beach-cruisers. You can only drive 10 miles-per-hour, but the sights and sounds are endless. If you feel the need for speed, head to the world-famous Daytona International Speedway, where the annual Daytona 500 is held every year.
For a more relaxing beach trip, visit during the off-season (summer and fall) and fill your days with mini-golf, museums or a drive to the Kennedy Space Center, located only an hour away from Daytona.
Daytona Beach has a humid subtropical climate. The hot, wet season runs from late May to October and the warm and dry season from November to April.
There is no bad time to visit Florida, so flights to Daytona Beach are always available.
The Daytona 500 is held every February, and Spring Break season starts mid-February and runs through mid-March. If you’re planning on travelling to Daytona around these times, you’re likely going to pay top price for your Daytona Beach flights and hotels. November to February are also very popular with older travellers, escaping the cold in other parts of the USA and Canada.
The weather in Daytona during June, July and August is hot and humid, but there’s always the beach to keep you cool.
If you’re near Daytona’s beach or city centre, you’ll see taxis and buses pass frequently. It’s very easy to drive around the city, so it can be convenient to rent a car. It’s a good idea to reserve your car when you book your flight, especially if you’re visiting during tourist season.
