Several other cities in Florida also made the list with Panama City Beach coming in at number 1, Destin number 2 and Orlando rates 5th.
“This just comes at a perfect time for us, which is the peak of our summer family vacation season,” said the newly appointed Executive Director of the Daytona Beach Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB), Lori Campbell Baker. The Volusia County Council unanimously voted to confirm Baker to that position on Thursday, July 7, 2016.
“TripAdvisor is such a great accolade for us,” said Baker. That’s because reviews are visitor generated – meaning this list is the result of what people said who have been to Daytona. “That’s not something you can buy,” said Baker. “It’s not part of a media plan or an advertising plan. That’s the grassroots – what are they saying about us.”
Baker also pointed out that the water issues that are plaguing much of the state are not affecting Volusia County. “We have 2 water quality issues within the state of Florida… Neither of those is affecting Volusia County beaches,” she said. “In the panhandle, we have a bacterial issue and in South Florida… it’s an algae bloom.”
Baker recommends visitors and residents go to DaytonaBeach.com, which has a schedule of upcoming events, parks, attractions, and “happenings.”
