The boardwalk amusement area and pier at Daytona Beach has been renovated in the past few years and is a fun place to visit. There are restaurants, gifts shops, rides and even a slingshot ride. There is a bandstand where they give free concerts. The pier has Joe's Crab Shack on it and you can just walk the pier even... More

Great place to walk, have the kids play arcades, have some pizza or some ice cream. Lots of shops to buy shirts and anything Daytona wise. Love the view and the atmosphere.

Smells of urine and saw 2 homeless people asleep in the overpass. Over all it is right and loud and a tourist trap. Taffy and ice cream shop looked tasty.

Hardly worth going to. Parking is hard to find and can be costly. Limited stores to shop at and the rides look like a bad carnival. Some homeless people asking for money and wandering around. The beach is nice but this place needs to be cleaned up with something for people to do. I do not see a reason to... More

Here's a place to go if you've had enough sun for the day but love the beach. Kids can play in the arcade, grown ups can sip a cold beer at the counter, or sit on the patio at one of the covered tables and watch the beach scene. A few souvenir shops too and the pier is there if... More

Bums, prostitutes, and beggars abound. Why on earth would you want to go there? Parking is difficult and the over aggressive cops will nail you.

There are a few rides and they seem to be in poor condition. The only ride I would consider is the slingshot because it seems fun, but the condition of the other rides tells me to stay away. Most shops and arcades are in poor, cluttered condition and are generally a rip-off. During the day, it is really too hot... More

There was a big Ferris Wheel, Racing Cars, Shops, Restaurants and Ice Cream along the boardwalk, everything you need to make your experience an enjoyable one. Not to mention the views of the beach - just fantastic! Shopping for beach wear and quaint jewelry were also an additional plus! I would love to visit again!
