South Daytona is an appealing and friendly residential and business community boarding the Halifax River – just below Daytona proper and slightly above Port Orange and Ponce Inlet. It offers plenty of scenic parks, excellent schools and tons of great shopping and dining venues. In short, South Daytona is great place to live, work and play. So let’s talk “play”.
When you border Daytona Beach, you can really ratchet up the fun. Daytona does the summer up right with the Family Festival and Hippiefest in June – both offering plenty of music, food and fun. Celebrate July 4th with a free Bandshell concert event and fireworks on the beach or at the Coke Zero 400 July 4th weekend at Daytona International Speedway.
Some of country music’s biggest stars perform throughout Memorial Day weekend at the Country 500 Festival. If music is your thing, don’t worry. Daytona offers a variety of options, including the three-day Daytona Blues Festival in October.
November is the month for the Halifax Art Festival, a cultural event of ginormous proportions. Later in November, on Thanksgiving weekend, Daytona Beach hosts the largest classic car show and swap meet in the United States – the Turkey Run.
The holidays are also a magical time. Don’t miss the Stetson Mansion Christmas Spectacular’s gorgeous display! Daytona also rings in the New Year in style with an extravagant New Year’s Eve Celebration on Main Street, complete with live music, vendors peddling fun and food and a spectacular fireworks display.
