Weather

The Daytona Beach area has a typical Florida climate: near-tropical heat, thundery summers and sunny winters. Its winter weather is in fact its most pleasant: the days are more settled and clear, and less sticky. Temperatures in those months hover around the very pleasant 68°F mark, and nights are decidedly cool - around 46°F in January. By contrast, the average summer high gets stuck around a sticky 90°F.

Getting Around

Daytona Beach International Airport is just east of the Speedway. The Greyhound bus station has multiple services to Miami.

Daytona is close to the intersection of two of Florida's major interstates. I-95 is the quickest way to Jacksonville 70mi and Miami 200 mi, though Hwy A1A and US Hwy 1 are more scenic. Beville Rd, an east-west thoroughfare south of Daytona proper, becomes I-4 after crossing I-95; it's the fastest route to Orlando (1hr).

Votran runs buses and trolleys throughout the city.

Health and Safety

Like many cities in the state of Florida, Daytona Beach suffers somewhat from high crime levels with robbery and aggravated assault reported to be close to three times the national average. Visitors are advised to avoid carrying more cash with them than is necessary. Expensive jewelry should be left in a hotel safe or kept well hidden under clothing. Avoid taking shortcuts through dark or unpopulated areas. If you are planning to hire a car then obvious warnings include not leaving valuables on show in your vehicle and parking the car in a well-lit populated area wherever possible.
