Which beach to visit for a day....Daytona or other

Hi - we're currently in Kissimmee and where going to take a day trip to a beach tomorrow.

Daytona is about 1.35 mins drive from here, but I see there are a few others (Flagler beach, Daytona beach shores) of similar distance but would appreciate any advice on where to go. (travelling with kids 9yo&7mnths and grandparents).

Thanks in advance

"Pay a small fee, drive onto and park on the beach. No dragging supplies from a parking lot. "

That's not always a good thing. news-journalonline.com/article/…

Other people have also been hit by slow moving vehicles.

Thanks for saying what I was thinking, Orlando_Vic. I really cannot believe they still allow cars on the beach in Daytona. It is insane in so many ways. And yes, I have heard of a number of people being run over since moving here. Then there's the environmental impact. I mean cars drip stuff. I better stop because I could go on……

Again, there are far, far prettier beaches to see in Florida within easy driving of the Orlando area, LauraC47! :-)
