For a fun and affordable experience Daytona 500 I would recommend St. Augustine Florida. St. Augustine is only about an hours drive from Daytona. It's more laid back and has more things to do when your not at the races. You can go to the beach. There are several motels right on St. Augustine Beach. The Casa Monica is a great hotel located in the heart of the historical area of St. Augustine. You can walk down old brick streets in the nations oldest city. There are little shops and museums to visit. If shopping is your thing then look for a motel out near the outlet malls. There are to huge outlet malls on either side of I95. You could do your shopping, hit the beach and take I95 right to Daytona. The food is better in St. Augustine. Saint Augustine many great seafood restaurants. A lot the restaurants serve local fresh seafood at great locations near the water. St. Augustine is a little further away so the prices seem to be better. A good way to find a hotel for the Daytona is to check out the link below. http://florida-vacation-travel.com/saint-augustine-fl-hot...
Come to St. Augustine and have a great time at the races.
