Daytona Beach
Known as party central for college spring breakers or a hangout for leather-clad motorcyclists, Daytona Beach might seem a somewhat intimidating destination.

This is evident in the multi-million dollar clean-up and renovation of the beachfront area which includes Ocean Walk Village. This exclusive development of hotels, restaurants and shops boasts its own Caribbean-themed water park. In addition, a number of child-oriented museums and theme parks have opened, drawing more families to the area.
