New Smyrna Beach.

As one of Florida's many east coast beach cities that remains mostly residential in nature, New Smyrna Beach is quiet and peaceful. Other than the beach, there are no major attractions or distractions. There is a nicely kept downtown area with small shops and eateries running parallel to the beach. A public beach (with parking) is central to the area and this makes for a wonderful place to spend the day or evening. Sheltered benches along the beach are great for young and old alike. 

 

New Smyrna Beach is north-centrally located on the Atlantic Coast of Florida. South of the city of Daytona Beach by about 15 miles and directly north of the Canaveral National Seashore, the small beach town is bordered on the west by the Indian River, a component of the Intracoastal Waterway. It is about 30 miles north of Titusville and about 45 minutes away from the Nation's Space Center. It is one of the closest beach cities to the fantasy land surrounding Orlando, approximately 50 miles away. The population is about 20,000 year round residents and increases significantly during the tourist season, weekends and holidays.

 

Visitors to New Smyrna Beach, FL can tour many local cities by car.  Daytona and Daytona Beach are about 15 minutes north and St. Augustine is a little over an hour away. You can get to the Space Center or the theme parks around Orlando in about an hour or less. The lighthouse at Ponce Inlet is just north but because there is no bridge over Ponce Inlet, access requires a mainland route. This area can be accessed best by aircraft from the Daytona Beach International Airport, a 30 minute drive.
