You may know Florida’s famous East Coast locale of Daytona Beach for the Daytona International Speedway and a spring break season that would make you blush, but this beach town has a lot more to offer.

And a lot more season left in it.

With the fall festival rolling around, families, couples and friends all gather for Florida’s “cooler” season — think 76–86-degree days well into November.

 

Aptly named WonderFall, Daytona Beach kicks off the family-friendly festival season Oct. 17, and rolls right through Dec. 1.

 

Biketoberfest Motorcycle Rally October 17–20

Are you a motorhead family? You’re in luck, one of the best motorcycle rallies in the Southeast is hosted in and around Daytona Beach. Stop by different motorcycle shows and custom bike builds, or shop around at hundreds of industry vendor stands. Make your way through the show and still have room enough to spread out on the beach — with 23 miles of Atlantic coastline, even non-riders in the family can easily find something to do.

 

Halifax Art Festival November 2–3

Step off the beach for a little while and get artsy at the Halifax Art Festival. Hosted in the historic downtown area of Daytona Beach, a range of established and up-and-coming artists and craftsmen showcase their work. Artists and artisans come from all over the country to exhibit at the festival, the second-longest-running art festival in Florida.

 

Greek Festival November 7–10

Now 43 years running, St. Demetrios Greek Festival is a great way to celebrate Greek culture right in Daytona Beach. Enjoy authentic cuisine and drinks, traditional music, dancing and a slew of fun events. Admission is free, which includes parking and a shuttle service to and from the event.

 

Daytona Turkey Run Nov. 28–Dec. 1

Sorry to jump ahead to the holiday season, but the annual Daytona Turkey Run doesn’t really scream seasonal tidings. Presented by Daytona Beach Street Rods, head to the Daytona International Speedway to check out thousands of unique automobiles. Meet vendors and get a new perspective on this famous venue.

Still looking for a festival that speaks to your family’s interests? No problem, Daytona Beach hosts more than 60 events, festivals and fun celebrations throughout the year. You’re bound to find a few worth traveling to the Sunshine State for, even if it’s just a good excuse to get some beach time in well into the fall and winter.

Celebrate the Holidays with Festivities in Wailea, Hawai’i

There is no better place to celebrate the holidays this year than Wailea, Hawai’i. Look to Wailea Beach to witness Santa and his elves emerge from the ocean in a decorated Hawai’ian outrigger canoe stocked full of candy canes, ready to kick off the festivities. Some of Santa’s elves will even surf Hawai’i’s great waves to make their way to shore. The entrance will be nothing short of special as they land on pristine Wailea Beach in front of the Grand Wailea Resort. Kids can meet Santa and take photos with him before he makes his way toward the resort.
