There’s a lot more to The World’s Most Famous Beach than meets the eye. When you think of Daytona Beach, you might picture speedways, lagoons and, of course, miles of white sand. But under the sights and sounds on the surface, there’s much more to explore.

If you know where to look, it’s easy to enjoy the best date night of your life in Daytona Beach. Start here:
- See a Play
Nothing says romance quite like the theatre. Daytona is home to a few small production houses that offer an indie-theatre experience. Try out the Peabody, Daytona Playhouse or the Little Theatre of New Smyrna Beach.
- Ride the River
There are date nights, and then there are date nights on a boat. Head out to New Smyrna Beach to grab dinner and a river cruise in one, or visit Cracker Creek or Inlet Harbor for a once-in-a-lifetime view of the sunset over the water.
- Sing Your Heart Out
Grab the mike and tell your partner how you really feel at any one of Daytona’s many karaoke clubs. Ocean Deck, Ormond Lanes and Mulligan’s all host regular karaoke and open-mike nights, so be prepared to give your lungs a proper workout.
- Grab a Drink
Daytona’s drinking options range from dingy dives and popular pubs to glamorous nightclubs. No matter where you are in the city, there’s a party within walking distance. Try Boot Hill Saloon, The Bank & Blues Club or Daytona Taproom to catch a drink like the locals do.
- Relax over a Meal
Wind down the evening with some quality cuisine over candlelight. There are fine-dining options all over the city just waiting to elevate your date night. Try Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse, Tia Cori’s Tacos or BJ’s Brewhouse for great food – but The Cellar is a must if you’re looking for ambience.
