Welcome to Daytona Beach, Florida

Welcome to our newest InCircleRentals member with vacation rental property in Daytona Beach, Florida! While Daytona Beach is well known for its waterside recreations and relaxations, it also boasts a unique history and many attractions....
...including the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse. Completed in 1887, the Ponce de Leon Inlet Light Station was built when the area was known as Mosquito Inlet. The lighthouse tower and museum are located 12 miles south of Daytona Beach and are open to the public year round. The Ponce Inlet Lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in Florida and the second tallest masonry lighthouse in the nation. Visitors can climb 203 steps to the top of the 175 foot tower and enjoy magnificent views of the World's Most Famous Beach, Ponce Inlet, and surrounding inland waterways from the lighthouse gallery deck. 
Among more wonderful things to do & see locally, it's also sea turtle hatching season just around the corner.  From May 15 through October 31, the Daytona Beach, Florida area beaches host the sea turtle, endangered wonderful marine creatures that emerge from the surf at night to lay their eggs in nests dug into the dry sand, then return to sea. Two months later, about a hundred baby turtles emerge from each of these nests and crawl to the ocean. This amazing cycle of Mother Nature is thousands of years old.
