Daytona Beach hotels
Daytona Beach is a small city known for its big motorsports. Home to the world famous NASCAR race, the Daytona 500, it comes as a surprise that Daytona Beach only has a population of slightly over sixty thousand. The history of thriving Daytona Beach hotels and tourism can be traced back to the 1960s, when ambitious local businessmen decided to make use of their unique environment (a beach with sand packed so hard you can drive vehicles onto it) to draw a crowd from all over the world.
