Best time to visit Daytona Beach

Between March and May is the finest time to visit Daytona Beach. Speedweeks, a series of activities and races building up to the Daytona 500, will be missed. Furthermore, the tourism hangover from February’s busy month will reward you with low rates. During Bike Week in March, expect crowds, and you’ll see some students partying in the area in March and April, especially when spring break is in full force. Furthermore, the weather is amazingly lovely, with daytime temperatures averaging in the 70s.
