We know that seasonal activities can help guide your decision on where to move—so as your foremost experts on all things Volusia County, we want to help you get a sense of the festive fun that abounds at this time of year! Just read on to learn more.
Magic of Lights
Daytona Beach is known for its passion for speed—but every holiday season, the Speedway takes on a slower pace, inviting guests to drive on the world-renowned track as they leisurely enjoy a sparkling light display! (For the ultimate Daytona Beach holiday experience, you can even kick off your day by taking the scenic route and driving in the sand—a time-honored tradition.)
Wonderland at One Daytona
At the heart of Daytona Beach you’ll find One Daytona and its holiday spectacular, Wonderland, featuring delicious (socially distant) dining, live performances, open-air markets and more. Get your shopping done and make meaningful holiday memories in the process.
Holiday Story Stroll in Rockefeller Gardens
Another fun outdoor event is the Holiday Story Stroll in Rockefeller Gardens! Immerse yourself in the beautiful outdoor setting of John D. Rockefeller’s famous gardenscape in Ormond Beach—all while reading the story of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” on giant storybook pages.
Seasonal scavenger hunts
Even more al fresco fun abounds in the form of seasonal scavenger hunts, like Port Orange’s Elf Hunt or The Casements Candy Cane Challenge!
Santa Claus comes to town
It wouldn’t be the holidays without St. Nick himself! The man in red will be making multiple appearances throughout the region this holiday season, including over in Western Volusia County—here, in charming DeLand, he will be cruising through neighborhoods by firetruck to spread some festive cheer.
