Oceanfront Resort Overlooking Scenic Drive-Up Beach

After the turn of the 20th century, Daytona was like a Beach Boys song come to life: drag-race cars drove directly atop the shore, leaving behind tread marks on the densely packed sand of the Daytona Beach Road Course. It's still possible to drive up and park your rig directly on the 23-mile-long oceanfront, one of few beaches in the world where this is still permissible. Rising just above this shore is the Plaza Ocean Club Hotel, whose family-friendly building overlooks the sea and the cars as they putt along the sand.

Within each of the sunshine-yellow high-rise hotel's ocean-view and oceanfront rooms, a sliding glass door opens onto a private balcony lined with deck chairs—a comfy spot to admire the sunset or wave to a passing kraken. Inside, buff walls and blond wood furnishings echo the sandy hues of the shoreline. King and double queen ocean-view rooms have partial views of the Atlantic. You can get a full view of the water from one of the double queen oceanfront rooms, which also have a separate kitchenette area with a small refrigerator.

Outside, there's an expansive deck made of pattern brick around a heated pool and kids' pool; the deck is lined with lounge chairs, patio umbrellas, and rustling palm trees. The lobby exudes a tropical feel, too, with slatted wooden panels and planters overflowing with greenery. Come morning, the onsite restaurant, Atlantic Jack’s Restaurant & Lounge, serves an Oceanside Breakfast (included in this Getaway) of two eggs, home fries, choice of bacon or sausage, and choice of bread in a casual setting.

Daytona Beach, Florida: Racing Legacy and a Famed Lighthouse

At the turn of the 20th century, motorists began racing on the packed sand of Daytona Beach out of practicality: the beach had a wide, unobstructed stretch and a smooth surface ideal for high-speed sprinting. Today, though, stock-car racing has moved to nearby Daytona International Speedway.

Hundreds of thousands of racing fans visit Daytona International Speedway each year to watch world-class champions such as Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon compete. Stock-car, sports-car, and motorcycle events round out the calendar all year, and are highlighted by the Daytona 500 in February—the first race of the Sprint Cup Series and typically regarded as the most prestigious. On various behind-the-scenes tours, you can explore the speedway's elevated press boxes, banked infield turns, and decadent hot tubs filled with motor oil.

Meanwhile, at Daytona Beach itself, cars toting beach gear roll across the hard-packed sand through oceanfront driving zones; there are also traffic-free areas. South of town, you can see the Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse. There, a spiral staircase winds up to the top of a 175-foot tower, where you can overlook a 52-acre park filled with armadillos, shore birds, and native wildflowers.
