According to findings published in the Journal of Consumer Research, experiential gifts, such as a family vacation, have a more profound impact on children’s happiness and emotional growth than material gifts.

Daytona Family Attractions

From the Boardwalk to the Speedway, Daytona is rich in family friendly attractions. Take the kids to a motorsports event at Daytona International Speedway, or get some education at the Marine Science Center (visiting the sea life is so fun they’ll never realize it’s educational).


The attractions of Universal (Harry Potter), Disney, and Epcot are just a day trip away. There’s also lots to do in Orlando that doesn’t involve theme parks, such as the Kennedy Space Center and Kissimmee Swamp Tours (see some gators!)

According to the aforementioned research, going to new places or doing a new activity helps to develop parts of a child’s brain associated with everything from stress management to improved ability to learn.

Don’t deprive the kids of a great family vacation, priceless memories and a positive growth experience. Book a Sea Shells Beach Club vacation today!
