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!

I didn't actually go in the amusements or on the rides but this area and the pier is right in the heart of the 'place to be' in Daytona with plenty going on day and night. The pier is free and well worth a walk down to watch the fishermen at the end, you may see sharks and see some... More

Souvenir shops, amusement center, food stalls, restaurant, and more. Daytona Beach boardwalk should not be missed when visiting Daytona Beach.

They have remade much of this old Boardwalk, hope to see it revive even more, hopefully if the economy ever really recovers, still has some good food
