As a kid, I remember this being the place we always visited as a family every other summer. Now that I have my own family, we’ve had the pleasure of visiting Daytona Beach a few times and we’re planning to make the trip again this coming spring to stay around three days. The first day after arriving in Daytona Beach will be spent relaxing on the beach, there’s nothing better to do than chilling on the beach.
The second day would be spent doing some site seeing because there’s a lot to see like the Jackie Robinson Ballpark & Statue, African American Museum of the Arts and the Turnbull Ruins-Old Fort Park. Like any of our family trips, we usually let the kids decide how we spend the final day of our vacation, but we choose the restaurant the final day because the kids choose the first couple of days.
