While visiting the Kissimmee and Orlando area, I thought I’d stop by New Smyrna Beach, FL to get some relaxation in with the family before the onslaught of traffic, crowds, and theme parks. I”m happy that I did. New Smyrna Beach is a sleepy little town just 90 minutes shy of the Orlando area, Northeast to be exact. It’s not far from Daytona just in case you’re in the mood for beach hopping. Don’t be surprised if your plans are swayed and you find that New Smyrna is all you need to get by. I stayed a couple of days but there’s so much I left undiscovered that I’d recommend, giving yourself a week.
