New Smyrna Beach, Florida: Coastal Town Abounding with Wildlife
New Smyrna Beach lies on Florida’s Atlantic coast, amid the waterways that make up the Indian River Lagoon. Shops, restaurants, and small art galleries line the town’s historical Flagler Avenue. The road dead-ends at the Atlantic shoreline, but you can keep driving right along the golden-sand beaches. Hop on a kayak, pontoon boat, or friendly sea turtle to experience the area’s abundant wildlife, or head to the Marine Discovery Center for a dolphin-watching boat tour. You can also try your hand at surfing—New Smyrna Beach made National Geographic’s list of the world’s 20 best surf towns.
