Wing Zone provisions fingers with a menu of juicy tenders and chicken wings dressed in 15 succulent sauces. Classic or boneless wings arrive in flavors such as lemon zinger, thai chili, and nuclear habanero, all taxonomized and numbered based on four levels of spice intensity. The breaded strips of tasty chicken tenders, also flavored with Wing Zone's arsenal of sauces, pair with chunky wedge fries, which lay out a savory ridge-and-valley topography for tongues to traverse.
Inspired in part by the area's longstanding tradition of beachside racing, the Daytona International Speedway draws hundreds of thousands of NASCAR fans each year to watch world-class champions such as Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Stock-car and motorcycle events round out the calendar all year, and during insider tours, visitors can go behind the scenes to explore the speedway's elevated press boxes, banked infield turns, and where the pit crew chugs motor oil.Meanwhile, at Daytona Beach itself, cars roll through oceanfront driving zones toting picnic supplies or beach gear across smooth, hard-packed sand in all seasons. There are also traffic-free areas; one such pedestrian-only stretch surrounds the iconic Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse, named for the famed Spanish explorer who once reputedly searched the area for the Fountain of Youth. There, a spiral staircase climbs the 175-foot tower to overlook a scenic fishing village and 52-acre park laced with nature trails.
Daytona Ice Arena sends skaters glissading across an ultra-smooth, NHL regulation-size sheet of ice. Bleacher seating with room for more than 300 spectators looms behind the glass on one side of the rink, and above, a snack bar overlooking the facility doles out refreshments. While escaping Florida's heat and the panhandling paddleboards that come with it, visitors to the frosty, 35,000-square-foot arena can soak up extra relaxation at the Penalty Box Sports Pub, which accompanies elevated views of the ice with an arsenal of big-screen TVs. The building—located just minutes from the beach—buzzes daily during public skating sessions but also plays host to a medley of other ice-tied triumphs including learn-to-skate programs, birthday parties, and youth and adult hockey leagues.
