A Sunny Day At Daytona’s South Beach Street Historic District

November 07, 2017

Miami Beach is not the only one to have a South Beach! South Beach Street Historic District is one of Daytona’s top tourist destination with 154 historic buildings. It’s the perfect place to grab a bite, sightsee, and walk around. Explore the residential homes that are canopied by lush live oaks and Spanish moss, while appreciating the low-lying tropical palm trees. Some architectural styles are Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, Bungalow, Mediterranean Revival, Art Deco, Classical Revival, and Gothic Revival. The result is an area rich with culture and significance. The buildings that contribute to the district were built before 1940 and have a unique feeling. The residential architecture mimics designs from New England villages and strays from the traditionally Southern looks, giving us a glimpse into the eclectic past. Keep your eyes open for great antique shops, creative eateries, and curio boutiques.
