Florida A1A Trail Leg #2: New Smyrna
A Model Beach Community that is Compact, Cute, and
Attention: No endorsement for
Condo Queen, just a neat way to showcase a compact, cute and cool place.
I have visited or crossed Florida countless times in the
course of my seven decades, heard many people praise New Smyrna Beach over the
years yet never before entered it.
So, it was with great interest and high expectations that I finally
I was not disappointed at all; indeed, consider New Smyrna a
model resort town and one of the highlights of our packed itinerary despite a
relentless 20 to 40 mph gale force wind that punished us and Florida’s east
coast for four days. Note the
stormy sky and sand blown from the drivable beach onto Flagler Avenue, the
heart of the village and main commercial corridor.
New Smyrna Beach’s long white
sand beach – note sand covered walkway.
We recommend the Hampton Inn for its location in the heart
of the village and proximity to walkable beach and riverside attractions.
Many cute retail shops and cool cafes and bars line the mile
long village boulevard stretching from the beach to the river.
New Smyrna Beach is proud of its world class shuffleboard
facility that has hosted championship competitions.
This home, built in the local classic style, is currently
occupied by a realty company.
