The Ocean Center Daytona Beach is the crown jewel of the Central Florida beachside. Only 400 feet from the world’s most famous beach, the center is known for its naturally lit, open, sweeping spaces and beautifully-catered functions. The Ocean Center’s unique spaces, including art galleries and dramatic pre-function areas, add a bit of local personality. Even though the Ocean Center is the state’s fifth-largest convention center, the talented staff and creative Executive Chef are adept at customizing details for every event to meet a group’s needs.
THINGS TO DO OUTSIDE THE CENTER
Visitors will find plenty to do and see, including group-friendly restaurants at the adjacent Ocean Walk Shoppes including Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Johnny Rockets and Sloppy Joe’s. New oceanfront dining experiences nearby include The LandShark Bar & Grill and Cocina 214. Directly on the beach and offering a great ocean view, the LandShark has an entertaining atmosphere of an island adventure and Cocina 214 serves Mexican dishes. There is shopping at the Volusia Mall, or check out the quaint shops on nearby Beach Street. The area also recently welcomed One Daytona, which is an expansive village across from the Daytona International Speedway, offering shops and restaurants including PF Chang’s and a Bass Pro Shop. Tanger Outlets also is nearby and features more than 75 stores and many of the world’s leading brands offered at outlet prices. The mall itself features a user-friendly layout with charming outdoor seating areas, beautiful landscaping and more.
