The Museum of Arts and Sciences is home to Daytona Beach’s planetarium, The Lowell and Nancy Lohman Family Planetarium. Adults and kids will enjoy the many seminars and shows that take place inside, including weekly laser shows. While the majority of the museum is dedicated to art, the exhibitions rotate out frequently so you really never know what you’re going to see. One thing not to miss though, is the weekly yoga classes that take place in the art gallery every Wednesday night.
When someone mentions Daytona Beach you might think of wild spring break parties with throngs of students, after all the area has made a name for itself as an end of term-time destination for 20-somethings. Thankfully though, those college crowds only fill the beach for a few weeks out of the year. When the party is gone and the beach is clear there are still plenty of things to do in Daytona Beach.
Whether you’re a NASCAR fan, a sun worshipper, or even a lighthouse aficionado, Daytona Beach really does have something for everyone. Mornings are mostly calm on the sand, with couples taking a stroll as the sun rises, but in the afternoon the city comes alive, buzzing with tourists and locals enjoying the scenic, coastal city. In the evening, folks gather to watch the sunset before heading off to dinner at one of the best restaurants in Daytona Beach, most of which serve a delightful mix of locally-caught seafood. No matter what you choose to do, or when you visit, Daytona Beach is out there waiting to be explored.
