Daytona Beach, America's most famous beach, is located along the coast of East Central Florida. With an overall average high temperature of 80° and an average low of 61° you can hit the beach nearly every day of the year. Although the ocean can get a bit chilly during the winter, sunbathing is seldom out of the question.

On average Daytona Beach's warmest month is July and January is the average coolest month.

Of course, this is Florida and the weather can be unpredictable. That was evident when a sweltering 102° was recorded in 1981 and a very cold 15° hit the record books in 1985. The maximum average rainfall usually falls in September.

If you're wondering what to pack for your vacation in Daytona Beach, put a bathing suit at the top of the list because you will need little else, especially if you're on spring break. Of course, some restaurants will require a little more than a bathing suit and bare feet, so you'll also need to pack shorts, tank tops and sandals.

If you will be taking in a race at the Daytona International Speedway during the early months of the year, you may need warmer attire, including a jacket. And, of course, if you'll be roaring into town during Bike Week or Octoberfest, just about anything goes when it comes to dress... except nudity.

If you'll be visiting during the Atlantic Hurricane Season, you'll want to investigate these tips for traveling to insure your family's safety and protect your vacation investment.
