35 Fascinating Photos Capture Everyday Life of Daytona Beach in the 1970s

Daytona Beach is a city in Volusia County, Florida, United States. It lies approximately 51 miles (82.1 km) northeast of Orlando, 86 miles (138.4 km) southeast of Jacksonville, and 265 miles (426.5 km) northwest of Miami.

Daytona Beach is a principal city of the Deltona–Daytona Beach–Ormond Beach metropolitan area. It is also a principal city of the Fun Coast region of Florida.

The city is historically known for its beach, where the hard-packed sand allows motorized vehicles to drive on the beach in restricted areas. This hard-packed sand made Daytona Beach a mecca for motorsports, and the old Daytona Beach Road Course hosted races for over 50 years. This was replaced in 1959 by Daytona International Speedway. The city is also the headquarters for NASCAR.
