Daytona Beach - USA

Here it is, the WORLD's most famous beach, Daytona Beach, Florida. Home of the Great American Race, the Daytona 500 and the birthplace of NASCAR auto racing and the Daytona International Speedway as well as countless resorts, auto racing themed stores and attractions, beachsides and a long coastline, and shops among other things. I visited the city last month when I saw races @ Daytona International Speedway, but not the 500 though. It is also home to Bethune Cookman College, Daytona Beach Community College, and Embry-Riddle Universit, and located 80 miles south of Jacksonville on Interstate 95. >(

City Population: 64,500
Metro Population: 530,000

Daytona Beach has one hell of a resort/hotel skyline for a city of 64,000. A lot of new highrise hotels and resorts have been constructed very recently. 8/10.
^^The population doesn't really matter in resort cities. But the skyline is okay. I give it a 6/10.
Fair. Other resorts, like Myrtle Beach, have more of a skyline. 5/10
Poor in ideas. Anodyne talls. Only nice for pensioners hollidays. 5/10
I'm really not at all impressed. 4. On the plus side, however, and anathema to its "*******" reputation, I hear that Daytona Beach has a nice art museum.
no this is pure poop. Compared to other tourism cities like atlantic city, it really sucks. alot. I can never say nice things about florida though because I have never been their so maybe you hsoudlen't listen to me. :)
Skyline looks OK, but is rather boring. 6/10
Thanks Jaybird for the great photos. I never seen what Daytona Beach look like.
I been to Florida cities, so based on Florida "coastline skylines" for it's size, I rate this city a 6/10
6, because its a nice small town for only 64,000 people
Like stated before, Myrtle Beach has a better skyline, and it too is a resort town.

Uh, I'm no Daytona expert, and I've only driven through once, but those are terrible shots of the skyline. It's got a very decent cluster of highrises, imo. I'd give it a 6
Eh---4/10. Not much variety. Not much.
It would only be fair to compare this with other beach towns. Compared to Ocean City, Md and Myrtle suffers. 4
