Spending the holidays in Daytona?

Stetson Mansion

Planning on spending the 2019 holidays in Daytona? Here are some of our favorite ways to enjoy this beautiful area:

  • Holiday Events at the Casements: tree lighting, shopping, music and more, throughout December! Set on the shore of the Halifax River and just two blocks from the ocean, the mansion has been called “the jewel of Ormond Beach.” During the holidays it transforms into a winter wonderland!
  • Magic of Lights at the Daytona International Speedway: Through the end of the year, the “World Center of Racing” transforms into a holiday wonderland. The holiday drive-through is open from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. (and from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. from November 28th-December 1st). A portion of the proceeds from the Magic of Lights will benefit AdventHealth Foundation in Volusia/Flagler Counties.
  • Stetson Mansion Christmas Tours: Built in 1886, this famed Victorian Gilded Age residence is a perfect backdrop for elaborate Christmas decorations, which are different every year.

Happy travels!
