We are driving from Orlando (I-4) to visit daytona beach.
We do not know which way to go from I-4, towards the 18-mile stretch of hard-packed sand.

Also which is the beach to take elder parents to a family friendly part of the beach.

I appreciate your time.

If you want a quieter part of the beach, from I-4, Take I-95 North to Exit 268 (Ormond Beach) SR 40. Head east and stay on that road until you get to A1A which is the highway that runs right along the beach. Turn left and when you get to the first light (Neptune Ave), there is a beach approach there. You can park there.

If you want the real "Daytona" experience, from I-4, take exit 129 (the last exit before I-4 ends) which is US 92. Again, head east and stay on the road until you hit A1A. From there, you will be in the heart of Daytona Beach and you can go anywhere.

Ormond beach is better than Daytona Beach...not only that but Daytona is over rated.

And New Smyrna beach is great too a lot more "family friendly". Not far from Daytona either.
