Daytona Beach Information

Daytona Beach is located in Volusia County with a population of 64,211. Daytona Beach is part of the Deltona – Daytona Beach – Ormond Beach, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area, with a census bureau estimated population of 496,575. Daytona Beach is a principal city in the Fun Coast region of the state of Florida.

The city is historically known as having a beach with hard packed sand which allows vehicles to drive on the beach in restricted areas. The hard packed sand made Daytona Beach a mecca for motorsports, with the old Daytona Beach Road Course having hosted races for over 50 years. This course was replaced in 1959 by the Daytona International Speedway.

Daytona Beach is a year-round family-friendly resort area, but is also called a seasonal town with large groups of out-of-towners descending upon the city for various events, most notably Speedweeks in early February when over 200,000 NASCAR fans come to attend the season-opening Daytona 500. Other events include the NASCAR Coke Zero 400 race in July, Bike Week in early March, Biketoberfest in late October, and the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona endurance race in January.
