Discover a Whole New Daytona

There are a lot of new things to look forward to during future trips to Sea Shells Beach Club. Daytona Beach is getting some serious makeovers. The Daytona Beach area has invested nearly $2 billion in renovations and construction, all of which will give you more entertainment options when you visit Sea Shells Beach Club over the next few years.

Here are some of the best things you can look forward to:

Daytona Rising
Race fans are already rejoicing over this $400 million overhaul of the Daytona International Speedway. The Speedway will become the World Center of Entertainment, a world-class facility opening in January, 2016. By the numbers: three new concourse levels; five expanded fan entrances; 11 social areas, each the size of a football field; more than 60 new luxury trackside suites with patios; 14 elevators and 40 escalators in the new grandstand; 101,000 new grand stand seats with backs and arm rests; and 5,000 solar panels that will make the complex one of the top five largest solar installations at a sports venue in the country.

Daytona Beach Boardwalk and Pier
While not brand new, The Sand Blaster roller coaster, a first for Daytona Beach built in 2013, is a must-visit. Measuring 80 feet tall and racing passengers at up to 50 mph, this amazing ride is only $6.

Florida’s Largest Collection of Art
In February, 2015, the Museum of Arts & Sciences launched the Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art, a $13 million facility housing the most extensive collection of Florida art in the world.

Shop ‘til You Drop
The extremely popular Tanger Outlets has announced plans for a new outlet mall in Daytona Beach. The date for completion is unknown, but in the meantime, shop the recently renovated Volusia Mall, which just completed a $5 million upgrade.

Speaking of Shopping
Nearly 1.1 million square feet of premier shopping, dining, theater and entertainment are planned for 2016, just steps from Daytona International Speedway’s “World Center of Racing”. Bass Pro Shops and Cobb Theatres are confirmed as anchors for this new One Daytona complex.

JetBlue
If you’re traveling to or from the New York area, JetBlue is making it a lot easier with the launch of a new route from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Daytona Beach International Airport. The Daytona area will have daily direct flights from New York City, effective in February, 2016.

You’re in for unexpected delights on your future visits to Sea Shells Beach Club as Daytona grows and changes.
