Celebrate Father's Day in Daytona Beach
Sunday, June 16th is Father's Day. What are you doing to celebrate? It's time to give the man who boasts the best dad jokes and taught you how to drive a car a well-deserved break, and Daytona Beach is the ideal vacation spot to enjoy some quality time with dad. From racecar excitement to boozy brunches, Daytona Beach has everything to make your dad feel extra special this holiday weekend.
Things to Do in Daytona Beach for Father's Day
Whether this weekend is for relaxing on the beach or to experience the excitement of Daytona Beach, there are a variety of ways to help you ease into or spice up your vacation with dad,
Rum Friday at McCoys Rum Room
On Friday, June 14th head to McCoys Rum Room, which offers rum tastings and happy hour specials from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm. Sample delicious rum flights while enjoying stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. McCoys Rum Room also offers small plates like shrimp poppers and loaded sweet potato fries and nightly entertainment. It's the perfect way to kick off your Father's Day weekend.
Go Fishing on Sunglow Pier
After enjoying a hearty continental breakfast at the hotel, begin the day with a little fishing at Sunglow Pier. Cast your line and see if you can catch flounder, trout, whiting or pompano (nicknamed "the world's most edible fish"). No need to bring your own equipment; you can rent everything you need including rods, reels and live bait from nearby rental shops. Visitors can fish at Sunglow Pier from 6:00 am - 11:00 pm daily.
Sunbathe or Bike the Beach
With 23 miles of pristine beaches there is plenty of space to plant an umbrella and spread out your beach towel (just don't forget the sunscreen!); however, if you'd rather enjoy some of the best views of Daytona Beach, then a family bike ride along the shore will offer a little exercise and a lot of fun. If you'd rather take it easy this weekend, you can also rent a golf cart and cruise the sandy beaches. There's no better way to experience miles of beautiful Daytona Beach coastline.
Bring the Family to the Father's Day Party and Giveaway

Dad can choose to be in the driver's seat or ride along with a professional racecar driver who can show him the ropes.
