Daytona Beach Shores was first organized in 1960 by local business leaders convinced that a smaller community could provide better services to its residents. The city was incorporated on April 22, 1960 and is located between unincorporated Wilbur-by-the-Sea to the south and Daytona Beach to the north.
In the 1970s and the 1980s, the city saw a massive building program. Now about 80 percent of the residents live in high-rise condominiums that stretch along the Atlantic Ocean. In 1997, residents voted in a straw ballot to limit the height of future buildings to 12 stories. The City Council approved the height limit in 1998
A resort and retirement community built on tourism and the service industry, it has no manufacturing industry, but caters to tourists year-round with miniature golf courses and other types of family entertainment.
