STILL A CONSTRUCTION SITE...
One of my proudest days was when our son, Christopher graduated from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach. Known as the finest school of its kind in the country, Chris completed his Aviation Maintenance Technology degree with Avionics in the Florida sunshine. (he rather liked the sunshine part of it)
Of course the beaches are wonderful...everyone always got a kick out of driving their cars up and down on the beach to see and be seen by the beauties. We used to bring our kids when Chris was less than a year old, so he has a very long association with Daytona Beach.
If it's arcades you crave...there are plenty of amusements along the boardwalk. Large hotels overlook the beach and ocean....find one with a pool next to the beach, if the salt water doesn't appeal.
Another favorite is the Daytona Raceway. Christopher has NASCARs in his blood and a mother has to hope he never drives one of those! The speed of those cars as they come around in front of the stands is absolutely frightening. Plenty of thrills for a motorhead.
Explore still further and you'll find the old Daytona...still shaded by big oak old trees dripping with Spanish moss. We found a great B&B to stay in during Chris' graduation days. Best fresh squeezed orange juice we've ever had!
- Pros:Plenty of sunshine, beach, palm trees and speedway

- In a nutshell:Daytona is fine if you go off season or know where to drive

We brought Christopher to see the school when he was about 10 or 12 years old while we were vacationing in Florida. At... more travel advice
