Daytona Beach in 2 days

Planning a trip to Daytona Beach? Our experienced travel editors break down the town so you can make the most of your stay. Let these itineraries be your guide, whether you're here for a weekend or a whole week.
  • Day 1
  • 1 Start your day slow and easy on the beach. If you booked a beachfront hotel, this should involve no more than walking outside. If you’re elsewhere, load up the car with some chairs, snacks and sunscreens and drive down a beach access.
  • 2 Have lunch at one of the beach wagons.
  • 3 After lunch, relax on the beach some more.
  • 4 Dinner at Azure.
  • Day 2
  • 1 Before it gets too warm, take your tour of the Daytona International Speedway. You’ll walk the stands and play in the Daytona 500 Experience. If your courage (and wallet) are up to it, drive a race car yourself at the Richard Petty Driving Experience.  
  • 2 Lunch at Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse.
  • 3 Back to the beach for an afternoon of sand and surf. If you haven’t made it to New Smyrna, this is a good time to try it.
  • 4 Dinner at J.B.’s Fish Camp or Our Deck Down Under.
