Daytona: Beaches, Sports, and More
Daytona Beach, Florida is 51 miles northeast of Orlando, 86 miles southeast of Jacksonville, and 242 northwest of Miami.

Other events include the NASCAR Coke Zero 400 race in July, Bike Week in early March, Biketoberfest in late October, and 24 Hours of Daytona endurance race in January. The Museum of the Arts is a primary cultural facility for Daytona Beach. Other museums located in the city include the Southeast Museum of Photography and the Halifax Historical Museum.

And of course, who could forget the beautiful beaches where you can relax and unwind with friends and family? Daytona: there is no better place to call home.
