Day 269 – New Smyrna Beach

Flagler Avenue

Flagler Avenue

New Smyrna Beach is a great alternative to Daytona Beach. It is about a 45 minute drive from Sanford. I personally like New Smyrna Beach better than Daytona Beach because of its cozy beach town flair. Flagler Avenue which leads directly to the beach is lined with unique little stores, restaurants and bars which makes walking along the town after laying on the beach for a couple of hours a very fun thing. It almost feels like a real little vacation. So this weekend we packed up our towels and swim suits and had a spontaneous day by the beach. The weather was perfect! Finally a sunny weekend day. Despite the rather crowded beach it didn’t feel overwhelming, it was just right.

New Smyrna is also one of the beaches where you can drive and park your car. I’m not a big fan of that because in my opinion it takes away from the classic beach experience but I don’t mind it either. If I feel like classic beach experience I can always go to Tampa’s beaches, right? New Smyrna just happens to be so cute – and conveniently located to Sanford 🙂
