The boardwalk was the smallest boardwalk I've ever seen. It consisted of a few shops with a couple places to eat and bums everywhere. We were stopped at least 3 times to give them money and one woman even started yelling at us when we ignored her. This was my least favorite part of our trip

There are many shops for your typical tourist shopping. If you love people watching this is a great place. Grab a cold beer at the arcade (which is very cold )and some chili then sit out on the sidewalk and have a great day.

Joes Crabhouse Restaurant and pier area just seemed poorly maintained. tables not clean and trash around the area. Pier did give a nice view and we were impressed with boardwalk historical race blocks with details of racing from the very beginning.

We enjoyed the board walk, having small children all of the activity was keeping them occupied. They rode the roller coaster, and go carts. We lucked out and there was street performers, and the kids really enjoyed that. One of mine even got picked help with a trick.

Had a good time at the arcades and shops. Not to many places to eat. A lot of children running around. We would go back.

We came down for a few days vacation and were not disappointed. We had so much fun out here. There were so many different things to do and different places to eat. We will definitely be visiting again in the future!!

There was a lot of advertisement about the wheel at Daytona Beach and after you have seen the Wheel in London and the one at Myrtle Beach it is a total let down. We drove to Daytona to ride the Wheel and when we got there we weren't interested. They need to get the real thing.

We have 3 grand daughters, ages 8, 3 and 2. What a fun nite we had at playing arcade games. The girls LOVED racking up the points and winning tickets to turn in for prizes at the end of the nite. Also.. a beautiful ferris wheel ride over the ocean and Daytona Beach Pier in the dark is so memorable.

I didn't go to the amusement area, so this review is only for the Pier. The area was spacious and easy to walk around. There is a restaurant that plays really loud music at the pier head, and the bar on the 3rd floor is also loud. The views are spectacular, though. .. We wanted to eat at the restaurant,... More
