New Smyrna Beach, Florida is just south of Daytona Beach and offers a quieter, more relaxing vibe. Families and beach-goers often stay here looking to be close to the fun and activities of Daytona without the noise and "spring break" atmosphere. New Smyrna Beach, also commonly referred to as NSB, is a family-friendly area full of shops and restaurants along Flagler Avenue, plus plenty of natural areas and wildlife preserves.
If you're staying here, then you'll want to be near the beach, of course. The beaches of Florida's central Atlantic Coast are terrific. The water is warm, blue, and the waves are fun without being too strong. Plenty of activities are around as well such as watersports, fishing, boating, and visiting the wildlife areas. Check out Smyrna Dunes Park to see the inland waterways and natural areas and the Marine Discovery Center (part zoo, part aquarium) to get up close to the local wildlife. Also, if you're into history, check out the Sugar Mill Ruins or the New Smyrna Museum of History for a fascinating view into the town's past. Also, as you're so close to Daytona, you can always head just a bit north to visit all of the activities there. Or, head south to Cape Canaveral to visit all of the NASA launch pads as well as the protected wildlife area of the Canaveral National Seashore.
