Daytona Beach and spring break – two things that will always go together like peanut butter and jelly, or like manatees and Daytona boat tours! During this time of year, people flock from all over the country to spend their spring break under the bright Florida sun. That doesn’t mean that all the fun is restricted to guests visiting from out of town! Residents of the Greater Daytona Region can also partake in all our area’s best spring break activities. Continue reading to learn what you can try during spring break this year!
Daytona Beach Boardwalk
The Daytona Beach Boardwalk is one of the most popular Daytona Beach attractions year-round, but it’s an especially noteworthy destination during spring break. Breath-taking beach views mix perfectly with the lively atmosphere of everything that Daytona Beach Boardwalk has to offer. Stop by any of the arcades and other amusements to play games with loved ones, or stop for a bite to eat that you can only find right by the ocean.
Jackie Robinson Ballpark
The spring season for our local Daytona Tortugas tees off in early April. If you or any of your loved ones are a sports fanatic, then a visit to Jackie Robinson Ballpark is a must! The stadium officially got its name in 1990, in honor of the first African American to play in a Major League Baseball game. Stop by to take in incredible bites of baseball’s history while enjoying the latest Tortugas game.
Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse
This remarkable landmark is Florida’s tallest lighthouse, and it can be found south of Daytona Beach. After climbing to the top of its 175 feet, you can soak in panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, as well as the quaint beauty of Ponce Inlet. Originally constructed in 1887, the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse has been a fixture of the Florida coast for over a full century. To this day, it is preserved by a volunteer committee of history enthusiasts who are committed to keeping the lighthouse as beautiful as it was in 1887 – if not more so.
Daytona Beach Boat Tours
What better way to experience the local area’s many blue waters than by riding on Daytona Beach boat tours? The easy answer: nothing beats it! When you cruise with The Manatee, you get to soak up the sights and sounds of the Intracoastal Waterway. This magnificent river stretches up and down the coast, running parallel with the Atlantic Ocean itself. Join us as we seek out closer looks to the wildlife of the Greater Daytona Region – including manatees, dolphins, and more!
There is never a shortage of things to do in Daytona Beach at any point of the year, but especially during spring break. Spend your vacation with us for a week that you’ll never forget! Contact The Manatee today to learn more about our available cruise types and reserve your spot.
