Coming Up in Daytona

Daytona Beach Shores

Summer is heating up in Daytona… here are a few of the events to look forward to:

  • Cinco de Mayo Celebration on Flagler Avenue! It’s located on the New Smyrna Beach, just 20 minutes south of the Perennial Vacation Club resort.
  • Daytona Tortugas baseball season! Head over to Jackie Robinson baseball field — after the games, the kids are allowed to run the bases! Find the game schedule here.
  • If you’ll be visiting over Memorial Day weekend, visit the Ponce De Leon Inlet Light Station and climb to the top of Florida’s tallest lighthouse.
  • Over on the boardwalk, enjoy the Daytona Beach Bandshell Concerts, running May through September every Friday and Saturday night (and stick around for the fireworks afterwards). Here you can find Jimmy Buffet, Beatles and Eagles tribute bands, just to name a few! Find the schedule here.

De Leon Springs State Park

Looking for a unique breakfast experience, wildlife, boating and history? Not too far from Daytona Beach Shores is De Leon Springs State Park, the area where legend says that Ponce de Leon discovered the Fountain of Youth. Start your visit with breakfast at the Old Spanish Sugar Mill Grill and Griddle House. Every table is equipped with a griddle; order a pitcher of homemade batter and cook your own pancakes. You can also rent a paddle boat, canoe, kayak or tube, and float through over 1,000 acres of lakes, streams and canals. There are also historical and ecological tours. It’s easy to plan an entire day around this beautiful and fascinating area.

Happy travels!
