Daytona Beach is not all about car racing. It’s a wonderful destination for the whole family and there is something everyone would enjoy. Among the world famous beach and Daytona 500 Speedway you will find this hidden gem nestled between AIA and International Speedway BLVD., The Museum of Arts and Science in Daytona Beach.
Little Dude and I set off on a road trip. We left Jacksonville, FL and headed south on I-95 to Daytona Beach. We were meeting a friend and spending the day at the Museum of Arts and Science in Daytona Beach. It was the halfway point between both of our homes. We met in the morning and spent the whole day at the museum.
