A Daytona Beach Tale
September 30, 2016
We love Daytona Beach and would like to share some fun facts about this amazing beach that the Hawaiian Inn Beach Resort gets to call home! The “World’s Most Famous Beach” title wasn’t coined until the 1920s, but Daytona Beach was actually founded way earlier in 1870 and officially became a city in 1876.
Since then, the city rapidly evolved into a beloved place for anyone who visits for an event, a beach vacation or a high-speed chase. Daytona Beach gained a lot of attention the early 1900s because of their fast automobile testing and, eventually, their car races. Every racing fan knows that Daytona is the place to be to enjoy a racing event in style. The city hosts annual racing events like the Daytona 500 that is their 59th edition already.
The Daytona International Speedway is considered the World Center of Racing and has just recently been renovated to include five expanded and redesigned entrances, or “injectors,” that lead fans to a series of escalators and elevators, transporting them to three different concourse levels. The complex now has approximately 101,500 permanent, wider and more comfortable seats, twice as many restrooms and three times as many concession stands.
The Hawaiian Inn has been a staple in the Daytona Beach community and is located right on the beach, and just a few miles away from the Daytona International Speedway and the Daytona Beach Boardwalk.
There is so much history behind this beach and so many entertaining options in the city, but for us the best part is still the breathtaking ocean, and wide sandy beach that visitors get to enjoy on a daily basis. There is no better feeling than waking up to a sunrise over the ocean. Our ocean front views at the Hawaiian Inn offers an unforgettable view of the beach, and allows for a relaxing vacation that you will certainly want to repeat year after year.
Daytona Beach has something for everyone, so we hope to host you soon for a vacation of a lifetime.
