This coastal speedway city has sophistication beyond the racetrack.

Sure, Daytona Beach, Florida, gets packed during NASCAR events and spring break. But this central Florida city along the Atlantic Ocean has a sophisticated side, too. Just amble through its historic downtown district, where art deco buildings abound and attractions include upscale boutiques, art galleries and the excellent seafood restaurants. Or browse the Cici & Hyatt Brown Museum of Art, where you’ll find the largest collection of Florida-themed art on the planet. All that and a lively pier and boardwalk make for a busy, beachy vacation.
