Orlando is an Hour away!! There is Disney, Islands of Adventure and Sea World there! Daytona is cool if you like the beach, but it is pretty congested being one of the more popular beachs.

There is also the Kennedy Space Center.

@MissEMich:  Daytona does not have much other than the beach and the Daytona 500 Speedway.  The Ponce Inlet lighthouse is pretty and there is a sea turtle research/recovery center nearby.  You could drive up to St. Augustine for a day.  It’s the oldest (European) city in the U.S. and it has lots of cute shops as well as trolley tours, boat tours, and ghost tours.

I will say that July and August are the hottest months so pack accordingly and please please please wear at least 30 spf sunblock; I promise you that you will still get a suntan.  I spent a week in the Keys camping out and I wore 45 spf and reapplied it 3x a day and still went home golden brown.  If you go without sunblock you will be one of the lobster red or even purple (ouch!) burned tourists that we locals laugh at; not to mention sunburns can cause sun poisoning and skin cancer.
