Orlando, Daytona Beach, and Melbourne - Disney World and the Daytona 500 on the "Fun Coast" of Florida

Over 50 million people per year visit the famous Walt Disney World theme park located in Orlando, making it one of the world's biggest tourist destinations. On the coast northeast of Orlando you'll find Daytona Beach, and just south of that, the city of Melbourne, which are both in a region sometimes referred to as the Fun Coast. The hard-packed sand beaches of the area were popular places to drive motor vehicles, and until the building of the Daytona Speedway in 1959, the location of the famous Daytona 500, races were held on the Daytona Beach Road Course. 

Major Roadways:

  • Interstate 4, leads from the center of Orlando to Daytona Beach to the northeast, where it intersects with I-95. Leads to Lakeland going southwest from Orlando.
  • I-95 follows the east coast of Florida past the west sides of Melbourne and Daytona Beach.
  • U.S. Route 192 goes west from Melbourne towards the south side of Orlando.
