“The World’s Most Famous Beach”

I think you would agree with me when I say that scooter rides are refreshing and pleasurable.

Want to know the best part?

Gaining an appreciation for places and roads you normally wouldn’t think twice about when driving in a car.

The Daytona Beach area is the perfect laid-back beach town for scooting around and exploring tons of scenic, picturesque destinations.

But before you go scooting to areas you may not be familiar with, consider our top 5 scenic cruises.

#1 THE LOOP – ORMOND BEACH

LENGTH: 33.98 miles

Enjoy spectacular views of Florida’s untouched natural beauty while being surrounding by the sounds of wildlife!

Not only is The Loop the best ride in the Daytona Beach area, but I would argue the best in Northeast Florida.

This quiet, scenic trail is covered with shady canopies of live oaks and dense forests, sweeping grass and marshes, coastal dunes and pristine beaches.

HOW DO I GET THERE?

The loop starts on North Beach Street at Tomoka State Park and goes along Old Dixie Highway until you cross the Intracoastal Waterway at High Bridge. After crossing the bridge, turn south onto John Anderson Drive and continue along the Halifax River which will bring you directly to Ormond Beach before swinging east to A1A. Continue on A1A for the sweetest gentle sea breezes (unless its hurricane season of course).

Here is a map of the trail to use as a guide.

#2 THE BEACH – DAYTONA BEACH SHORES

LENGTH: 23 miles

Daytona Beach is not nicknamed “World’s Most Famous Beach for nothing.

Daytona Beach welcomed the first automobile and motorcycle races in 1902 making beach cruising a popular tradition to this day.

Head on over to Daytona Beach Shores for an afternoon cruise or a ride at dusk to enjoy a little vitamin sea.

HOW DO I GET THERE?

Access points from A1A can be found starting just south of the Dunlawton Bridge in Daytona Beach Shores to Granada Bridge in Ormond Beach.

Here is a map of beach access points to use as a guide.

 

#3 A1A – DAYTONA BEACH TO PONCE INLET 

Ponce Inlet

LENGTH: 6 miles

Enjoy a casual, easy 35 mph cruise to one of the quaintest, most historic areas in town.

The highlight of your journey will come when you make it to Lighthouse Point Park, a 52-acre area offering a slew of recreation activities including:

HOW DO I GET THERE?

Take a right on A1A after crossing the Dunlawton Bridge and continue cruising until you can’t go any further!

PRO TIP – Avoid the park’s $5 admission fee and park at the northern end of the trail at Ponce Preserve (4400 S. Atlantic Drive) and Winterhaven Park (4589 S. Atlantic Avenue). Restrooms are also here too.

 

 #4 A1A – ORMOND BEACH TO FLAGLER

LENGTH: 26 miles

If you want to take one of the simplest and unforgettable sunrises or sunset cruises of your life, then read on.

This Atlantic coastline cruise from Ormond Beach to Flagler Beach will remind you why Florida’s stunning weather and environment leaves the rest of America jealous.

Treat yourself to a great burger and cold beverage with a view of the Atlantic and live entertainment at Finn’s Beachside Rooftop Bar and Grill.

And if you’re still hungry after that, swing by Waffle Cone for a fabulous sweet treat. If you can think of a flavor of ice cream, I am sure they will have it.

HOW DO I GET THERE?

Take a left onto A1A after crossing the Grenada Bridge and continue north for 26 miles until you reach Flagler Beach Municipal Pier.

 

#5 US-1 – PORT ORANGE TO NEW SMYRNA

LENGTH: 10 miles

New Smyrna is a small beach town just south of Daytona Beach best known for being a surfing hub.

The coastal Smyrna Dunes Park has a complete view of the Ponce Inlet lighthouse.

If you want to explore the town, Canal Street Historic District has a variety of neat shops, art galleries, and the New Smyrna Museum of History.

The party is ALWAYS happening on Flagler Avenue so be sure to check that area out also!

Some local hot spots that are worth checking out include:

HOW DO I GET THERE?

Take US-1 south for 9.2 miles until you hit Washington Street. Take a left on Washington and continue over the Causeway and the road will bring you right to Flagler Avenue in a little over a mile.
