I was really impressed with the pier this year. It seemed like it was cleaner and safer also. We loved all of the rides and we had a wonderful time on the beach in front of the pier watching your wonderful fireworks!

This Pier is free to fish from, but you will have to pay for parking near it. They cancel each other out in the end. If you know what you are doing the pier can be a great spot to fish from. If you don't catch anything you can stop in at Joes Crab Shack. Many a angler has done... More

This is a great thing to do in Daytona. I usually eat dinner at the Hyde Park Steakhouse & then stroll down the boardwalk and take a ride on this ferris wheel. Go right at sunset the sky is beautiful.

We had so much fun on the roller coaster!!! Our 8yr old also did the Sling Shot!!! He loved it! He had a look of horror on his face during the ride, but as soon and he was lowered back down; he asked to do it again!!! Great fun!!!
