Land and Sea

NSB Beaches & Parks

Take a whimsical stroll on the beach, while stopping to collect uniquely adorned seashells. There are several quiet spots to catch up on that tan whilst reading your favorite book. The best time to visit these beaches are at sunrise and sunset, ideal for a beach wedding or ceremony. If sand and salt water isn’t your thing, you may consider exploring the local trails and parks. Wildlife explorers should take a boat tour on the calm waterways to view dolphins, turtles, alligators, aviary and manatees. Make sure to charge your phones and cameras as there will be plenty of photo ops when discovering NSB.

Vast Lodging

Inns and B&Bs offer tranquil private rooms that offer full service accommodations. Beach goers would enjoy Atlantic Avenue being steps away from the beach with a lively nightlife. In New Smyrna Beach you can find all types of accommodations for your budget. For a taste of culture and history, any place near Canal Street would work best.
