The Daytona Beach area is rich with an African-American history that encompasses several of the 20th century's most prolific leaders.  These pioneers lead advancements in education, government, athletics and the Civil Rights movement. Two of those leaders -- Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune and Dr. Howard Thurman -- called Daytona Beach home.


Daytona Beach is a city that guarantees to provide visitors with a memorable vacation experience by land and sea.  The city is home to motorsports giants—NASCAR and The Grand American Road Racing Association and has some of the state’s top beaches. Daytona Beach is a year-round family-friendly destination with a large tourist population during seasonal event months for auto speed weeks and spring breakers.

Jackie Robinson Ball Park

One reason the stadium is named for Jackie Robinson is the fact that Daytona Beach was the first Florida city to allow Robinson to play during the 1946 season's spring training.
