Our group block at the host hotel fills up relatively quickly (especially if you need a particular kind of room), so be sure to make your reservations as soon as you’re able. However, if you’re not able to get a room at The Plaza, there are MANY other hotels within a very short walking distance.
Ocean Walk Village – 1/2 mile south of The Plaza, the multi-level complex provides a complete shopping, dining and entertainment center.
Daytona Lagoon – Daytona’s premier family entertainment center offers hours of fun-filled excitement for the entire family. You can enjoy 25 ft. rock wall climbs; putt a round of mini-golf on one of three nine-hole courses; go for a spin on the high performance go-karts or dodge the rays in a 3,100 sq. ft. laser tag arena. Also enjoy a state of the art video arcade.
Daytona Beach Boardwalk and Pier – Enjoy old-fashioned beachfront fun: Ferris wheel, shops, arcades, amusements and a classic pier stretching a quarter mile into the ocean. Located at the boardwalk is the world’s hottest new attraction. The patented spring machine launches you 300 feet in the air at 100 mph for a unique adrenaline-pumping experience!
Daytona International Speedway – Home of the Daytona 500. Has various track tours and exhibits daily.
Zoom Air Adventure at Tuscawilla State Park – Enjoy a treetop adventure at Zoom Air Adventure Park Daytona Beach, up in the trees of Tuscawilla Park! Zoom Air’s aerial adventure courses are deftly woven into the forest of this easily accessible City of Daytona Beach park.
Historic St. Augustine – The nation’s oldest city. The historic areas are absolutely gorgeous, and there is so much to see and do. Lots of “oldest” sites, walking/riding tours, and “haunted” places to check out! (approx 1 hour north)
Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure (Orlando) – Home of the Wizard World of Harry Potter (WWoHP) and other awesome theme park funness. There are so many cool movie/pop culture attractions. Universal CityWalk is accessible without park admission. If shopping/dining/people watching is your thing, this is a nice alternative to Universal Studios. (Note – to see ALL of the WWoHP, you will need the two park pass! Details on their website.) (approx 1.5 hours south)
Walt Disney World (Orlando) – Home of the giant mouse and all his friends. One of the most famous theme parks in the world, and a magical place (yes, even for grownups!) to spend the day. For those who prefer retail over roller coasters, Downtown Disney and Disney’s Boardwalk are a fun ways to experience some of the shopping/dining/people watching here, without park admission. (approx 1.5 hours south)
