Strangely, the city of Daytona was left out of the TOP 10 list. Daytona is traditionally a city sought after by Americans during Spring Break. That’s not to say Daytona hasn’t been overrun by young Americans during Spring Break in 2022. It’s likely that many Americans made reservations for Orlando, but also stretched or made daytrips to Daytona, as the city is so far away. just 1 (one) hour drive from Orlando.
