The Ponce Inlet is the site of one of the most recognized Daytona Beach attractions. Its lighthouse station is the tallest in the state of Florida where a climb to the top is worth the amazing view. Its historical importance dates to the 1800s. 
 
Another icon of Daytona Beach attractions is the Band Shell and Oceanfront Park Complex. This beautiful structure is built from coquina rock. The design alone is worth seeing. Visitors can enjoy the free open concerts that are held weekly and the venue offers 4,500 seats.
