One of the great things about Volusia County and living near Daytona Beach is all the affordable fun things to do with family and friends. When it comes to family-friendly activities and attractions, this Central Florida area is hard to beat! You don't have to drive an hour to Disney or NASA, we have wonderful attractions in our own backyard.

Here are 3 family friendly attractions to check out, right here in Volusia County:

  1. Marine Science Center - Visiting the Marine Science Center, located in New Smyrna Beach, you will get a chance to see some sea turtles and seabirds in rehabilitation. But it doesn’t stop there. You will also find tanks with turtles, stingrays, and more, as well as crafts and other activities.
  2. Marine Discovery Center - Also located in New Smyrna Beach, you can take an eco boat ride here and learn about the river habitat. It is an enjoyable ride that will give you the inside scoop on the flora and fauna, as well as probably give you a chance to see wildlife, including dolphins.
  3. Cracker Creek - This is one of the gems of Port Orange. Whether you want to stroll the rustic grounds or rent a canoe for a couple of hours, it’s a wonderful place to visit. And be sure to check out the many peacocks roaming freely on the property.

This is just a small sampling of all the great things there are to do throughout the Daytona Beach and Volusia County area. These places are great for family members of all ages. If your family hasn’t visited these attractions, schedule on your to-do list, and be sure to take along a camera!
