If you need a break from the beach, head to the Daytona Lagoon. With a miniature golf course, go-kart racing, laser tag, a rock wall and a handful of amusement park-type rides, the Daytona Lagoon makes for a fun afternoon. There's also a water park (open on days when the temperature rises above 65 degrees) where visitors can enjoy a lazy river, wave pool and some sizeable water slides.

While a day trip here is a welcome respite from the beach crowds, recent travelers say the park can be expensive. You can pay per activity, or you can buy an hourly wristband; 1 hour of dry activities (laser tag, mini golf, rock wall) costs $19.99 per person, while daily admission for the water park costs $29.99 per person. You'll find the Daytona Lagoon in the Ocean Walk Village complex, about 5 miles northeast of the city center.
