Riverfront Market District
Slip on your comfortable shoes because with over 60 establishments to explore, the beautiful Riverfront Market District is stuffed to the brim with chocolate, dining, culture, performers, bargains, a ballpark, marina, antiques, books, boutiques, jewelry, even a giant multicultural Farmers’ Market!
New exhibits at the Halifax Historical Museum can be found in the former 1910 Merchants Bank building, but the permanent displays are just as intriguing! Discover the Timucuan tribe, early pioneer families, WWI and WWII artifacts, and enough local history to make you feel like a native yourself! Museum hours run 10:30am-4: 30 pm Tuesday through Friday, and 10am-4: 00 pm on Saturdays.
The Cinematique Theater is Daytona Beach’s sole art house cinema that serves food and alcoholic beverages at your table. A visit here could bring improv comedy performances, live music, cult classic cinema, cultural events and festivals, and nostalgic drive-in movies.
This riverfront collection of fine entertainment may lead you to a tour at the Angell and Phelps chocolate factory where gourmet sweets and treats tantalize your better judgment, or perhaps to the News-Journal Center at Daytona State College for a whimsical theatrical performance! The Farmers’ Market is loaded with organic ingredients, baked goods, seafood, and charm, but you must come on a Saturday to check it out!
When the time to dine is upon you, choose from nearly 30 restaurants ranging from Italian and French to Mexican and Mediterranean! But Daytona Beach isn’t only the place for excellent chow, but wonderful shopping as well! Choose from home décor, shoes, antiques, clothing, books, music, jewelry, specialty food and wine, and more!
Whether you intend to spend your vacation money or just take in the waterside ambiance among the locals as they fill their baskets with fresh produce, baked goods, and trinkets, the market has a charming array of attractions certain to exceed the expectations of every group member, and all within walking distance!
