Sports & Recreation

Volusia County likes to stay active. With 47 miles of famous surf breaks, historic boardwalks, and uninterrupted miles of beachcombing, you can see why we are The World’s Most Famous Beach.

Fishing is plentiful whether you go deep sea fishing in the Atlantic Ocean, bass fishing on the St. John’s River, or take advantage of the redfish capital of the world.

From the granddaddy of spectator sports – the Daytona 500 – to local softball leagues, we are a sports-loving community. Whether you’re a duffer or a master, golfers love Volusia County. With over 20 courses that are open year-round, you can always get a tee-time. Established over 60 years ago, the LPGA and US Tennis Association are both headquartered here. For armchair athletes and weekend warriors alike, Volusia County offers plenty to keep you busy.

“The Jack” is home to the minor league Cincinnati Reds affiliation. Built in 1914, this historic ballpark was named after Jackie Robinson, the African American who broke racial barriers by playing the first integrated game here. For major sports fans, the nearby Jacksonville Jaguars and Orlando Magic offer the best in pro football and NBA action.

You really don’t have to travel far to entertain yourself in Volusia County, but for a change of pace, Disney Theme Parks, the Kennedy Space Center, and historic St. Augustine are all easy day trips.
