New Smyrna Beach is a quaint beachside town that never lacks fun things to do.
Voted “Best Beach” by Orlando Sentinel, it is known for a host of great water activities. Take your board down to the beach and catch some waves, or rent jet skis and have a blast jumping them. Cruise down the Intracoastal with friends or family, catch the fish of a lifetime, snorkel, dive, paddleboat or kayak. There’s even a dog friendly beach with miles of elevated boardwalks, picnic areas, pavilions and an observation tower. The world is your oyster in New Smyrna Beach.
There are auto races every Saturday night at New Smyrna Speedway and eco tours at the Marine Discovery Center. The atmosphere is festive. Jazz festivals fill the historic streets with music. There are wine and craft beer tasting, theatrical events and local art and culinary exhibits.
Since we are on the topic of events, let’s get specific for October. Just to name a few… there are the 7th Annual Chili Festival and Sons of Speed Motorcycle Race at New Smyrna Speedway October 15th; an “Epic Billfish Tournament” October 21st; the New Smyrna-Ween Little Devil Dash and Monster 10K Beach Run October 29th; and the Creepy Crawl, a pub tour on Flagler Avenue, on Halloween.
