Florida Limousine Service

History Daytona Florida

The area was once inhibited by the Timucaun Indians, who lived in fortified villages. War and disease, however would decimate the tribe. Florida was acquired from Spain by the united states in 1821, although permanent settlement was delayed until after the Second Seminole War from 1835 to 1842. When the Civil War ended, Florida experienced a boom in tourism.

Daytona Beach was founded in 1870 and incorporated in 1876. It was named for its founder, Matthias D. Day. In 1886, the St. Johns & Halifax River Railway arrived in Daytona. The line would be purchased in 1889 by Henry Flagler, who made it part of his Florida East Coast Railway. The separate towns of Daytona, Daytona Beach, and Seabreeze merged as "Daytona Beach" in 1926, at the urging of civic leader J.B. Kahn and others. By the 1920s, it was dubbed "The World's Most Famous Beach".

Daytona's wide beach of smooth, compacted sand attracted automobile and motorcycle races beginning in 1902, as pioneers in the industry tested their inventions. On March 8,1936, the first stock car race was held on Daytona Beach Road Course. In 1959, William France created NASCAR and the Daytona International Speedway to replace the beach road course. Automobiles are still permitted on certain areas of the beach, only at a maximum of 10 mph.

The city attracts over 8,000,000 tourist each year. There are special events that happen all year round that attracts the tourist to come back year after year. For instance:

  • Speedweeks Daytona 500 NASCAR race, Rolex 24 sports car race, and others that come in February.
  • Daytona's Coke Zero 400, NASCAR race on or around July 4 ( traditionally called the Pepsi 400 or the Firecracker 400)
  • Daytona Beach Bike Week Daytona 200 motorcycle races, bike show and biker reunion in March
  • Daytona's Biketoberfest in October
  • Daytona's Turkey Run car show and events during Thanksgiving weekend (Traditionally called the Turkey Rod Run)
  • Daytona's Spring break ( dates varies, usually the first and second week of March)
  • Daytona Beach is also home to the headquarters of NASCAR, Grand-Am, International Speedway Corporation, United States Tennis Associations in Florida, and the LPGA.
