The Heat is On! Take a Weekday Getaway to Daytona Beach!

It’s hot! And the heat is rising. One of our must-do trips every spring is a beach getaway. And since we’re all about the experience, we always go on a weekday. Daytona Beach is the perfect beach destination for the Atlanta family to relax, recharge and reconnect. There’s plenty to do and it’s just a short road trip away.

Daytona Beach Weekday Getaway with the Famz

So, first things first. Always keep in mind why you’re taking this weekday getaway in the first place; to relax, recharge and reconnect. My number one tip for trips like this is not to overbook your days. Keep things light and spaced apart so there’s plenty of time for the moment.

Daytona Beach has a lot to see and do. Here are some the highlights you’ll want to experience:

  • Recharge at one of Daytona Beach’s oceanfront resort spas 
  • Relax on the beach with the family and take in the view or enjoy water activities
  • Reconnect with your family and wildlife at state and local parks, hiking and biking trails and at Blue Spring State park where you can even see the manatees!

But this is just the beginning. There really is such a variety of things to do in Daytona Beach. Whether you want to shop, explore or even hit the “Ale Trail” there is something for everyone. It really is the perfect “fun in the sun” beach destination. It’s the type of adventure that can be planned in a moments notice for the spontaneous families out there.

It’s a versatile destination that can be the perfect escape for any type of traveler. Whether it’s a romantic trip, family trip or a trip with your friends, it really is a crowd pleaser. 

Added Value When Visiting Daytona Beach

As a single mom, I’m all about getting the most bang for my buck.I always want to look for Daytona Beach Weekday Getaway Deals, and there’s a lot fo them. Another thing that’s super cool about Daytona Beach is that there’s a lot of stuff to do for free. It adds a lot of value to the expense any trip can cost. Here are some of the free things to do:

  • Free summer kids movies
  • Angell & Phelps Chocolate Factory tour
  • The Casements (historical and art exhibits)
  • Friends of the Bandshell Concert Series
  • Mary McLeod-Bethune  Foundation Home and Gravesite
  • North Peninsula State and Recreation Area
  • Ormond Bicentennial Park
  • Ormond Memorial Art Museum and Gardens
  • Sugar Mill Botanical Gardens
  • Sun Splash Park

Outdoor Bonding with Your Travel Partner(s)

I especially love this. There’s no better way to build on a beach adventure than to get out and get outdoorsy with it. I’m talking kayaking, canoeing, hiking, boating and even surfing. Get on a few of these adventures with your family or friends and you’re sure to come home with fun stories to share and memories to hold dear.

Daytona Beach is a win-win for us Atlanta-based families and every family who’s hitting the road (or even the skies). So pack up your fins and sunblock and ditch the office for a cheeky weekday getaway to one of the best beach destinations in the USA.
