What Makes New Smyrna Beach Special

With beachy, welcoming, laid-back vibes and a picturesque natural landscape convenient to everything, yet safely tucked away, New Smyrna Beach is one of Florida’s best kept secrets. Also the favored nesting grounds of our beloved sea turtles, you’ll find New Smyrna Beach just south of world famous Daytona Beach and a convenient drive to Disney World and all of the other popular Orlando theme parks, as well as historic and charming St. Augustine and exciting Cape Canaveral.

Nature lovers rejoice! Virtually surrounded by water, the coastal gem of New Smyrna Beach is brimming with miles of pristine shoreline, nature parks, hiking trails, beautiful foliage and abundant wildlife. Ah, but with events throughout the year including wine walks and art strolls, festivals, cook-offs and classic car shows, New Smyrna Beach’s duality is amazing.

There is something for everyone in New Smyrna Beach. It’s a hot surfing spot where you can always catch a wave, with a thriving art community and amazing waterfront dining options. It has not one, but two main streets: Flagler Avenue on Beachside with eclectic shops and restaurants and a vibrant nightlife; and quaint Canal Street with numerous boutiques, outdoor cafes, art galleries and historic appeal. 

If you need even more proof that our little town is beguiling to all who visit, here’s an interesting tidbit…New Smyrna Beach was also awarded one of the Top 10 Beaches by Conde Nast.
