Top 5 Reasons to be a Neurophysiologist in Daytona

If you’re a trained and certified neurophysiologist with experience under your belt in the IONM field, we have great news for you. SpecialtyCare is currently hiring in warm and sunny Daytona, Florida. If you’re looking for a change in locale, read on as we take a look at the top reasons why Daytona is a truly awesome place to live.


1) Gorgeous Beaches

Was there ever any doubt that the beach wouldn’t be #1? Daytona is a beach town, through and through. It’s the first thing we all think of (unless you’re a NASCAR fan). Daytona comes fully loaded with 23 miles of breathtaking white sand beaches. The sand in Daytona is mostly hard-packed, meaning you can run safely on it or even drive on it in some areas. The beaches are open 24-7 to all pedestrians with free access, tidal conditions permitting, and nearly every beach is close to an eatery. Think of the possibilities. Surfing, skiing, sailing, paddle-boating and fishing await.

2) Beautiful Weather

As the good people of Northern California and New England know all to well, the beach and nice weather don’t always go hand-in-hand. Luckily for residents of Daytona, they get to enjoy that sweet warmth all year round. The average annual high temperatures during the day are rarely below 68 degrees, and the same goes for reaching above 90 degrees with the exception of July and August. That’s a heck of a lot of months in a warm comfort zone. And for those of you worried about those hot months, don’t forget you’re in a beach town. The breeze can break the humidity.

3) Disney World and Universal

In case you weren’t aware, Daytona is only an hour away from Orlando. This means daily access to Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld. And within Disney and Universal is Islands of Adventure, Animal Kingdom, and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Disney is also opening Galaxy’s Edge, a Star Wars theme park, in the fall of this year. And for you basketball fans, Orlando also has the NBA Magic.

4) Daytona 500

We simply can’t write a piece on Daytona without mentioning one of the biggest annual sporting events in America. Since 1959, the Daytona 500 is the season-opening race of the NASCAR cup series every year. It’s also been the most-watched race on U.S. television since 1995 (the Indianapolis 500 surpasses it in international ratings). It runs in February and has taken place on Valentine’s Day eight times.

5) Annual Events

Thanks to the gorgeous weather, Daytona is all about the outdoor annual events. In addition to more race car events every year beyond the Daytona 500, there’s also the Daytona Beach Half marathon, Daytona Bike Week, and the 2 day P1 Aqua Grand Prix, featuring the fastest-growing personal watercraft racing series in the world.
