Sea Shells Beach Club’s condo-style suites will convince you to make Daytona Beach your second home. From the heated swimming pool and beach gear rentals to the laundry facilities and fitness room, it’s easy to fall into a rhythm with the sea at this oceanfront hotel.

You won’t encounter any roadblocks during your stay at the Streamline Hotel, which is probably why it was a popular spot for celebs, speed demons and gangsters in the 1940s. While you may not be bunking next to a NASCAR legend, you will be sleeping under the very roof where what’s now known as NASCAR was signed into formation – the hotel is known as the birthplace of stock car racing. Hang out on the rooftop bar and see where it all began before you head to the Speedway for the Daytona 500.
Fountain Beach Resort

However, they’re also prepared to warm you up in the best of ways. A bubbling hot tub and resort sauna will loosen those muscles up from a long day of surfing. A piping hot pizza right out of the stone oven at Oasis is the perfect complement to an ice cold bucket of beer and chill sea breeze.

The ocean view from the private balcony of your queen suite or the sun-kissed pool deck will wash over you with waves of tranquility. Diners and seafood shacks are as close as a half-mile away – a beach walk you may find too short when you’re soaking in the rays of the Sunshine State.
The Shores Resort & Spa

Upscale yet far from uptight, the Shores Resort & Spa delivers a quintessential Florida vacation that’s as laid-back as you’d like it to be. Hanging out in your oceanfront cabana room will never get old, but if you need a little change of scenery, you’re welcome to join a free yoga class on the beach. Why not spend a little more time in the sand with a private surf lesson, or get behind the wheel of a Jeep Wrangler for a beachy cruise?
