  • Get A Way at Crescent Beach, FL

    "I would go back to Crescent Beach in a heartbeat. Very nice beach, family friendly, plenty to do. The Sand Dollar was conveniently located to the beach. My only complaint would be with the cleanliness of the property and the number of items that were not in working order - vacuum, had to call to get drains unclogged. I might consider a different property but LOVED the area!"

  • Paradise on Cinnamon Beach!! After a Rocky Start!!

    "Our group of 16 vacationed at The Sea Gem and had a WONDERFUL trip! The rocky start began when we were about an hour away from arriving and I received a call from the Rental Agency (Vacation Rental Pros) informing me that the refrigerator in the main kitchen on the 3rd floor was broken. I expressed to them that this would not work and we would definitely be needing that refrigerator. They told me it would be Thursday before it would be fixed. Well, long story short, that did NOT work for me, so I took to Facebook and aired my complaints for all the world to see. Well, lo and behold, I received another call very shortly thereafter and was told that the rental agency had contacted the oweners and I would have a new frig on Monday, which I could live with. The owners are WONDERFUL people, not only did they get us a new frig, they helped DELIVER AND INSTALL it!! And also brought us a new griddle, steak knives and a hand mixer that was on the fritz. They genuinely cared about our vacation and it showed! As for the house, it is magnificent. Especially that 3rd floor balcony, I am still missing sipping my morning coffee while watching the dolphins play! The home is spacious and user friendly, especially with that elevator, it is a life saver! The pool area and hot tub are awesome and the beach is just gorgeous and not crowded. There was no chair and umbrella service, but it was off season in September, so don't forget to bring your own. There are lots of activities around the area, we went to Disney one day (about 1.5 hr drive) the guys went deep sea fishing one day. There are a ton of good local restaurants nearby, I loved The Funky Pelican! One Debbie Downer comment is that the neighbor to the right of The Sea Gem is a real grouch!! I think he may only be there on the weekends, on Sunday morning, the day after we arrived, the kids were excited and up bright and early and in the pool at 0830, so Mr. Neighbor Man calls security to drop by our place and tell us that the kids had to get out of the pool until 0900. I mean....really?? I also agree with another poster that the garbage rules are very confusing. I couldn't figure out why there was such a stink over the garbage (pardon the pun) All in all, the SEA GEM is truly what it's name says! I would whole-heartedly recommend it and hope to return someday!!"

  • Bikeroberfest 2014

    "This house and amenities were gorgeous! The pictures on VRBO don't compare to seeing this house in person! The location was perfect to have a little peace and quiet but also close enough to enjoy the fun of Biketoberfest. The house was very clean and the owners/managers of the house were so friendly and accessible. We look forward to staying here again very soon!!"

Daytona Beach Travel Tips

Known as "The World's Most Famous Beach," Daytona Beach is an ideal destination attracting sunshine-seekers. The white sand shorelines are tucked along the east coast of central Florida, brimming with family-friendly activities. The city is home to the Daytona International Speedway, which hosts the Daytona 500, one of the biggest racing events in the country.

A Glimpse at Daytona

Though the population is only about 62,000, nearly 8 million vacationers from around the world flock to Daytona's shores each year. Whatever time of year you choose to visit, the weather is balmy - which is certainly one of its biggest perks. In the summer, temperatures hover around 80 degrees while they rarely get lower than 50 degrees in the winter. For logistic purposes, the city lies about 51 miles northeast of Orlando and 86 miles southeast of Jacksonville.

The Beach

Soak up the Florida sunshine along the 23 miles of shimmering beaches. With so much sun and sand, water sports are a must. Surfing, fishing, kayaking and dolphin-watching all make the list! Ride the fad wave of paddleboarding and try it out for yourself. If you want to sail thousands of feet over the ocean, strap in for an afternoon of parasailing. At night, there are a bunch of bars that party animals will enjoy. The best part? It's open 24/7 with free access!

The Daytona 500

The Daytona 500, dubbed "The Great American Race," is the shining star of NASCAR events. For decades, the 200-lap, 500-mile-long competition has been among the biggest, richest and most iconic races in the Sprint Cup calendar. The event takes place in the Daytona International Speedway around mid-February.

Fans young and old make their way to witness not only the exhilarating sights and sounds of the final race, but also Speedweeks, which is handful of events leading up to it. If you're coming with children, it's not a bad idea to buy a day pass and bring them to the pre-race activities, including giveaways and samples. Despite the mild weather, Daytona 500 is a long event, so spectators should dress in layers. Veteran 500-goers know to bring snacks, water and ponchos, just in case.

Must-sees

- Daytona Beach Boardwalk and Pier: Recently reopening after a $5 million restoration, the Daytona Beach Boardwalk is the main drag for entertainment and family fun. The beachside stretch features the Boardwalk Amusement area, which has go-karts, a Ferris wheel and a roller coaster. You can even catch a firework display every Saturday night at 9:45 from Memorial Day through Labor Day. During the summer, there are a free concerts at the bandshell.

- Ponce Inlet: Making up the southern part of the beach, the Ponce Inlet is home to tallest lighthouse in Florida, called the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse and Museum. A National Historic Landmark, the lighthouse is open for tours throughout the year, so be sure to swing by to learn about the region's maritime history while catching panoramic vistas of the Atlantic Ocean.

- Marine Science Center: This marine center, housed in a 5,300-square-foot facility, showcases habitat dioramas and interactive adventures perfect for the little ones. Amid underwater decorations, visitors have a blast at learning about the turtle and seabird rehabilitation programs. In the center of the gallery, there is a 5,000 gallon artificial reef aquarium where you can get your hands wet with the stingray touch pool.

Wine and Dine

Climb to the Moon Tours: For a sunset unlike any other, steal away with your lover to the Climb to the Moon Tours at the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse. You'll toast the setting sun and rising full moon with drinks and hors d'oeuvres from Ponce Inlet's famous Inlet Harbor Restaurant as a tour guide cues you in the lighthouse's fascinating history. The whole event makes for a great appetizer.

Hidden Treasure Rum Bar & Grill: For a full meal, Hidden Treasure Rum Bar & Grill offers delectable seafood dishes in a casual ambience. If you're here during the week, check out the deals: Tuesday is a fish fry, Wednesday features all you can eat crab legs and on Thursday you can treat your palate to whole Maine lobster deals.

Don Vito's Italian Restaurant: Located in the heart of downtown Daytona Beach historic shopping and arts district, Don Vito's is authentic Italian. Owners Barbara and Jim Castronovo make you feel at home, serving up crowd favorites like shrimp marsala, margarita pizza and a thumbs-up wine list. Besides, it's a good bang for your buck.

Chucherias Hondurenas: Adventurous eaters and sweet tooths flock to Chucherias Hondurenas. Chucherias, which means "finger food," characterizes this Latin hotspot. Try out the sangria and chocolate tres leche cake. The colorful atmosphere, yucca fries and pupusas will make you feel like you're eating in Central America.
