“Bored in Daytona Beach? We don’t believe you. Why? Because we know there’s no shortage of things to do. In between time spent bronzing on the beach there are vibrant arts, entertainment, historic, culinary, outdoor recreation and scenic pursuits. We suspect you just need the right inspiration.” –Canadian Traveler magazine

Canadian Traveler knows the same thing anyone who’s ever visited Sea Shells Beach Club knows: there’s a lot to see and do in Daytona Beach, and you don’t have to break the bank doing it.
This article looks at 11 free (or nearly free) things you can explore in Daytona Beach.

Here are a few of our favorites:

The Casements
Named after the notable hand-cut casement windows which give this iconic mansion major curb appeal, it is easy to see why The Casements is often called the jewel of Ormond Beach. Although it is now owned by the city, this mansion once served as the winter home for oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller.

North Peninsula State Recreation Area
Looking to get a glimpse at Daytona Beach’s natural side? Look no further than the four kilometers of unspoiled beachfront along the Atlantic in North Peninsula State Recreation Area. Those who venture into it will be immersed in the native natural landscape Florida is famous for.

Angell & Phelps Chocolate Factory Tour
What better way to get a break from the hot Florida sun than to slip into a chocolate factory? You’re in luck, Angell & Phelps offer tours to peckish visitors with a sweet tooth. Those on a tight budget need not worry about their pocketbook either. Monday through Saturday, free guided tours lead groups on a 20-minute peek inside this factory.
