New Smyrna Beach is 15 miles south of Daytona Beach and south of Port Orange. It’s just north of Cape Canaveral and has easy access to both Interstate 95 and Interstate 4. New Smyrna Beach is an arts town, named one of “America’s Top Small Cities for the Arts.” It’s home to the Atlantic Center for the Arts, an artists-in-residence retreat and educational facility nestled on 69 acres that attracts some of the world’s most famous artists who come here to work. New Smyrna Beach is completely surrounded by water; the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Intracoastal Waterway to the west and Mosquito Lagoon in between. It’s quintessential Florida in many ways - a city nestled among moss-draped trees with a laid-back atmosphere and a 20-mile long beach. The town is amazingly free of the crowds and hustle-bustle of other Florida beach towns.
