Best Times to Visit Daytona Beach

The best time to visit Daytona Beach is between March and May. You'll miss the crowded Speedweeks, a series of events and races leading up to the Daytona 500. Plus, the tourism hangover from busy February will reward you with cheap rates. You will encounter crowds during Bike Week in March, and find some students partying in the area during March and April, especially when spring break is in full swing. What's more, the weather is unbelievably pleasant – typically in the 70s during the day.

March-May

Springtime temperatures tend to hover in the 70s and 80s during the day and dip into the 50s and 60s at night. A spring visit also yields a full event calendar. However, if you want to avoid the spring break crowds, keep in mind that spring break typically runs from the end of February until the end of March. Timing your visit for April or May could yield lower prices and fewer crowds (and a more family-friendly environment).

Key Events:

June-August

Summer is the most budget-friendly season, but visitors should be prepared for hot, sticky weather. Temperatures rest around 90 degrees Fahrenheit all summer long. The area is hurricane prone; those traveling in the cheaper late summer and early fall should also be mindful of potential storms.

Key Events:

September-November

Fall is a relatively indistinguishable season in Daytona Beach. Summer rains linger into September, but temperatures will hang in the 70s and 80s until the end of November.

Key Events:

December-February

With average daytime temperatures in the 60s and 70s, it's easy to see why winter is the most popular time of year for events and visitors. Remember to book your accommodations early whether you are attending special events or avoiding them.
