Daytona Beach Shores is located south of the city of Daytona Beach. It’s one of the newer cities of the area, formed in 1960 by a group of “moteliers” who called themselves “2,000 Cottages.” The community stretches for about 5 ˝ miles along A1A next to the Atlantic Ocean. Daytona Beach Shores is sometimes confused with the city of Daytona Beach, but it’s much smaller and has fewer hotels, but a higher concentration of condominiums. Described as a “charming, friendly, oceanfront community,“ Daytona Beach Shores is largely a resort and retirement community that caters to tourists. Approximately 80 percent of the population live in high-rise condominiums along the beach. In 1997, residents voted to limit the height of future buildings to 12 stories. There are no schools or manufacturing within the city.

Daytona Beach Shores has pristine beaches and lots of activities, including miniature golf and a private par 3 golf and tennis club. The community is also host to events such as Race Week and Bike Week, and each December, the city sponsors “Light Up the Shores.” This special holiday event features hundreds of Christmas trees along its main street, a tree-lighting ceremony that includes carol singing and other activities. Daytona Beach Shores is a very walkable town where you can enjoy peaceful sunrise walks or watch the boats cruise along the waterways.
