Discover Fun Things To Do, See & Eat Within 100 Miles Of Daytona Beach Florida:

DAYTONA BEACH SHORES WEATHER

6 bridges access daytona beach shores

Looking for fun things to do in Eastern Central Florida (Volusia County).  This page mainly focuses on fun things to do in Ormond Beach, Holly Hill, Daytona Beach, Daytona Beach Shores, South Daytona, Port Orange, Ponce Inlet, & New Smyrna Beach.  

There are a few things outside the local area like Blue Springs, Orlando or NASA (Kennedy Space Center).  These fun things to do are more of a whole day trip, these trips require more planning since they are 45+ minutes away from Daytona.

Daytona Beach Shores is on a peninsula and is accessed by 6 major bridges which connect the Daytona Beach mainland.  The river between the two Daytona Beaches (mainland and beachside) is called the Intercoastal Waterway and the part of this that flows through Daytona Beach is called the Halifax River.  

This is brackish water (mixed salt and fresh) and is a toll free 3,000 mile long shipping route made up of sounds, bays, lagoons, rivers, and canals.  Most of the river is usable by deep-draft vessels.  See the tide chart for Daytona Beach here.
