Bridging the historic mainland with the “island” and its white, sandy beaches, the New Smyrna Beach (NSB) Waterfront Loop encompasses the heart of New Smyrna Beach. The nearly six-mile NSB Waterfront Loop gets its name from the views offered of the Intracoastal Waterway, Indian River and Atlantic Ocean. Visitors often comment on the quaint, laid-back, non-commercialized atmosphere that surrounds the Loop’s scenic waterfront. Locals will tell you they also are proud of the area’s Old-Florida charm.
Central Floridians repeatedly have named New Smyrna “Florida’s Best Beach.” But the community is more than miles of surf-lined beaches. With four commercial districts (Flagler Avenue, North Causeway, Third Avenue & Historic Westside), visitors conveniently can move from the sand to the street, and everyone in the party is sure to find what they’re looking for. Spend a day shopping for antiques, unique gifts, or fun fashions; enjoy a variety of cuisines; visit an art gallery; schedule a kayaking tour, or take in one of the outdoor events. “Do the Loop!” and see for yourself why New Smyrna Beach is a favorite getaway for locals and Central Floridians.
