Daytona Beach is world famous for its International Speedway, miles of beautiful beaches and a host of
spectacular events throughout the year…
Daytona International Speedway has been recently renovated and is home to the Daytona 500 –
NASCAR’s most prestigious event, as well as the largest combined car show and swap meet in the United
States – the Turkey Run. The Turkey Run showcases over 6,000 vintage classic, muscle and race cars and
trucks for show and sale, more 2,500 swap meet spaces, delicious food and great entertainment.
If motorcycles are more your thing, Daytona Beach has some great events for you too! Visit Daytona
during Bike Week in March or Biketoberfest in the fall. Both events are action-packed, and Main Street is
lined with vendors and full of live bands.
Culture is also important to Daytona Beach. Take art, for instance…Halifax Art Festival, the second oldest
continual art festival in Florida, features hundreds of artisans from across the country in early
November. Or music…Daytona Beach Bandshell, a scenic, historic music venue, provides free beachside
concerts throughout the year.
And did you know that Daytona is referred to as the “Festival Capital of Florida” because so many
festivals, including the Celtic Festival, Festa Italiana, the Greek Festival and Festival of the Arts, are held
in Daytona Beach?
Holidays are also outstanding in Daytona Beach. Start your holiday celebration by taking a holiday tour,
and then ring in the New Year right with an extravagant New Year’s Eve Celebration on Main Street!
