When I was a kid, my family vacationed annually in Florida, spending a week in Daytona Beach. We loved those vacations, and I went with my family almost every year until I was 26 – the year I was married. I look forward to taking my kids there some day. Daytona Beach is located on the East Coast of Florida right on the Atlantic Ocean. It has its own airport, but several other Florida airports are also nearby. There are lots of different lodging options available, including hotels, bed and breakfasts, condos, and motels. T
here are lots of kid friendly options of things to do in Daytona Beach, FL. The beach, of course, is the most obvious activity, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Unlike many beaches, Daytona Beach’s sand is densely packed, which means cars can actually drive right on the beach. There are also many activities on the beach, including deep-sea fishing and water sports. In addition to the beach, there’s lot of other outdoor fun, including tennis, state parks, and an adventure course. Daytona Beach is also the Festival Capital of Florida, and there are many fall festivals that are family friendly.
