Travel to Daytona Beach

The Daytona Beach Boardwalk, also known as the Daytona Beach Broadwalk, consists of the concrete promenade which was installed in the late 1920s, followed by the bandshell and coquina embellishments which were completed in 1938. It is a structure located on the beach in Daytona Beach, Florida at the east end of Main Street, east of Ocean Avenue. It is open seven days a week and consists of a concrete walkway with various stores and shops including the City Walk shopping and entertainment complex, hotels, gift shops, amusement centers, arcades, restaurants and bars. It also features outdoor and indoor rides like the Ferris wheel, Slingshot, Hurricane, Tilt-O-Whirl, go-carts and rollercoaster. Free concerts are given in the summer at the Bandshell on the north end of the area. The Daytona Beach Pier, also known as the Main Street Pier, was built by Thomas Keating in the late 1800s. The pier begins at the east end of Main Street, south of the boardwalk and extends 1,000 feet into the Atlantic Ocean.

The actual name of the area is the "Broadwalk". It was named this because of the width of the walkway and the fact that the structure was made of cement, not wooden boards. The editor of the local newspaper refused to call it the "Broadwalk" in print, changing it to "boardwalk" because of the negative connotation of the word "broad". The common name has since become "Boardwalk" for that reason alone.
