Downtown Daytona Beach

Once, the home to presidents and wealthy entrepreneurs. The area of Downtown Daytona Beach is the core of this historic city. The district began with the founding in 1870 by Mathias Day.

Downtown’s main promenade Beach Street, is lined with over 50 shops and eateries. Every season fans fill up the stands to see Daytona Cubs play in the historic Jackie Robinson Stadium on the waterfront. Beach Street has museums, exhibits, outdoor festivals, water activities, nightclubs, cafes and Florida’s oldest Saturday Farmer’s Market, (open until 1:00pm). Anchoring the North Block of Beach Street is the new, multi-million dollar state-of-the-art News-Journal Center at Daytona State College.

The Downtown area is the only neighborhood in Daytona where you can see a Broadway play, stop by the Halifax Historical Museum, enjoy the Daytona Beach International Festival, catch a baseball game, photograph the manatees, launch your boat, shop and dine out with friends all within walking distance.
