Located directly on the white sands of "The World's Most Famous Beach," Ocean Walk features many well-known favorites like Coldstone Creamery, Bubba Gump Shrimp Company and Sunglass Hut, but is also home to fantastic deals just waiting to be taken advantage of by residents and guests alike.

The Beachfront Bandshell
We hope you’ve been catching the FREE weekly Bandshell concerts on Saturday evenings at 7pm. The outdoor beachfront amphitheater has been resounding with music ranging from swing to top 40 hits to eclectic jazz and everything in between. If you haven’t been so lucky, there are still three more Saturdays left before we have to say goodbye to Ocean Walk’s Star Spangled Summer. And don’t rush off – Fireworks are shot off at 9:45pm every Saturday after the concerts.

On August 18, the sounds of Nickoloff will permeate the starry night sky. Known for their home-grown, high-energy rock that fuses harmony, melody, variety and attitude, Nickoloff has the ability to crossover all genres and age groups with their music and live show.

Madison County, the eight-piece country show band based out of Madison, Wisconsin will entertain crowds of all ages on August 25, going from styles like Keith Urban, Montgomery Gentry, and Tim McGraw, to acoustic duos, acapella songs and musical skits.

The Bandshell’s summer of concerts concludes with a “Bands in the Sand” festival Labor Day weekend featuring six different Caribbean, Beach and Reggae bands kicking off at 2 pm on Saturday, September 1.

Paragon Ocean Walk 10
Tired of paying an arm and a leg to take your family to the movies? Ocean Walk Movies 10 is now offering $5 movies every Tuesday. First they gave us $6.50 movies for senior citizens, then student discounts and now $5 Tuesdays -- any movie, all day, for anyone in your group. You can buy the kids popcorn, a beer or glass of wine for the adults, and enjoy the movie without having to worry about taking on a second job to afford a nice family night out.

The Happiest of Hours
The Ocean Walk restaurants and bars never cease to fail when it comes to great drink specials. Happy Hours run everyday from 3pm to 1am (midnight on Sundays), allowing the 21+ guests to enjoy food and drinks oceanfront without breaking the bank. The Mai Tai Bar has proven to be a favorite local spot transporting you to a Hawaiian beach bar with a variety of tropical libations, artfully garnished with fresh Hawaiian orchids. Hosting two live musical acts every day, no cover and all-day Happy Hour every Sunday from 4 pm to close makes Mai Tai’s a must-do on Daytona’s beachside.

After traveling to beach towns all down the East Coast, in no other area have I found a comparable collection of entertainment, great food and shopping directly on the beach. Ocean Walk is truly a venue of it’s own kind and perfect for multi-generational families, a high school team, or group of young professionals to explore and have a great time.
