Fall is coming, and when you’re visiting Sea Shells Beach Club, that means average highs in the mid-70s and average lows in the mid-60s, and a great time to get out and enjoy all of the attractions Daytona Beach has to offer.
Our friends at the Daytona Beach Area Convention & Visitors Bureau have outlined some of the favorite fall festivals coming up this year.
If you love mild temperatures, endless activities and fabulous festivals look no further than Daytona Beach! Offering a year-round calendar, the Festival Capital of Florida really heats up in the fall, just as the weather cools down. –DaytonaBeach.com
