We go up that way all the time to visit the in-laws. The easiest way is to
take the Turnpike (several individual tolls of $.75, then a ticket at mile
marker 8Cool up to Jupiter, mile marker 114, toll $2.20. The Turnpike and
I-95 run side-by-side for a few miles there. You get off the Turnpike, go
right across the overpass and get directly on to I-95. From there, it is
about 3 hours, more or less, to Daytona. With this route, you pay more in
tolls, but you avoid all the downtown traffic of Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and
West Palm Beach, making it well worth it. Do try to avoid morning rush
hour, if possible.

I drove from Miami up to Orlando last year. Using I95 worked
fine for me.

To be accurate, you'll have to be more specific. There's a reason.
The most direct way to the greater Orlando area is gonna be up
the Turnpike and then onto I-4. This would include areas all the way
up to about Deltona. After that, taking the turnpike to about
Jupiter or so, and then crossing over to I-95 will get you to
the New Smyrna area faster. I-95 is a vastly busier road but
on a Sunday I wouldn't think it is too "rush hour like". So it really
depends mostly on what you mean by Daytona "beach". There is
actually a town called "Daytona Beach" and then a few other localities
called "Daytona" something or another. Deland, Orange City, these
kinds of places might be reached faster on I-4 via the turnpike.

I drove I-95 last month. It's fine between Miami and Daytona,
and more direct than the Pike.

I live in Daytona Beach. There is no such place as Daytona - it's
all Daytona Beach. That said, when I go to Miami I usually go down I-95,
then switch to the Turnpike usually around Jupiter where the Florida
Turnpike and I-95 are very close to each other. If I go to Fort Lauderdale
I stay on I-95 all the way down as I am going over to the beachside there.

Isn't there both a "South Daytona Beach" and a "Daytona Beach Highlands"
or some such places?

To be accurate, you should read the original message.

Original poster wants to go from Miami to Daytona.

Why are you factoring in a side trip to Orlando?

I don't know where the OP wants to go - but if you look at a map of Florida,
you'll see that I-95 goes right up the east coast and the Turnpike goes up
the center, with not a lot of cross-roads going east-west.. A lot of towns
'near Daytona' are more easily reached by going through or around Orlando
than by going up 95 to Daytona, then turning left and coming back west.

There is South Daytona, which is just south of Daytona Beach on the
mainland. Daytona Beach Highlands is not a municipality but could best be
described as being a subdivision or a part of town.

I forget the route number, but I seem to recall it is called the Beeline
Highway.

Highway 528. It goes straight from Orlando Airport to Port Canaveral - nice
road, except for the tolls :-{ Go south on 95 one exit to 520, go east
straight to Ron Jon's Surf Shop. ;-}

Actually, he said "close to Daytona". For someone flying
into Miami, places such as Deland, Deltona, Orange City, Lake Helen,
etc. could easily be such a place. Additionally, the thread included
some mention of going through Orlando. If they were going to
such places, they'd probably be better off going up I-4 on a
Sunday.

I recently drove from Fort Lauderdale as far north as Cocoa,
and I-95 was fine. There was a bit of a slowdown near
Boca Raton due to construction, but that lasted about 10
minutes.
