Many tourist destinations get pigeon-holed into a reputation and never seem to dig their way out. The first thing one might think when the Florida town of Daytona Beach is mentioned might be auto racing and raucous spring breaks. However, the city has much more to offer, including its rich history and hidden architectural gems. Daytona’s oldest continuously operating hotel, The Clarendon Hotel (now the Plaza Resort & Spa) was built in 1911, complete with Turkish baths and airplane rides, landing and taking off on its sandy beach. The original lobby has been restored to its former glory with gorgeous columns and art deco touches, with the Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop. The property is stunning and offers all the modern accouterments one expects of a full-scale resort and spa.
