The Central Florida lifestyle is tailor-made for fun in the sun, world-class attractions, breath-taking sunsets, and so much more.
Especially in New Smyrna Beach, there’s no shortage of options to unwind and enjoy life. From sandy beaches to top-notch dining, pristine golf courses, and everything in between, the area is also the perfect place to call home.
Here’s why this region of Florida is the ideal place to build a custom home and settle down:
The Best of All Worlds
The City of New Smyrna Beach is ‘split’ into two distinct areas: mainland and beachside. This simply means that it’s possible to live within the city limits but not directly near the ocean. Many residents appreciate the proximity to the beach while still enjoying the peace and security of living inland.
Unlike other communities in Florida, the city is a destination full of world-famous shops and restaurants. Accessible by Interstates 4 and 95 (as well as local roads), visitors can effortlessly navigate to your property.
That’s partly why Coastal Living Magazine consistently ranks New Smyrna Beach among the best in Florida.
When most people think of Central Florida, the first thing that comes to mind is major theme parks such as Walt Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios. While those are certainly quality destinations, the fact is that there’s a wealth of fun to be had north of Orlando.
Steeped in history (the area was first settled in 1768), you’ll marvel at the old-meets-new environment of Canal Street and the downtown region. The area features a variety of shops, restaurants, and points of interest such as The Hub on Canal art gallery and other cultural stops.
Another local favorite is Flagler Avenue. Full of eclectic and unique shops and dining options, the street ends right on the beach, providing families and individuals with a ready-made way to spend a day enjoying the sunshine.
Outdoor Enthusiast’s Paradise
Also on Flagler Avenue is the Coronado/Mainland Shuffleboard Club. The nearby beach offers a variety of recreation choices such as swimming/wading, beach sports (volleyball, tennis), kite flying, or just relaxing by the shore.
If you’re interested in surfing, there’s no better place. Surfer Magazine has ranked the region one of the “best surf towns in America,” and Travel and Leisure counts New Smyrna Beach as one of the world’s top surf destinations.
In addition, there are more than 40 golf courses within 20 minutes of the city. That means you’ll never have to cancel or postpone a day out because of the crowds. Kids and the young-at-heart will be impressed with the Marine Discovery Center and nearby Ponce Inlet Lighthouse.
A Community of Like-Minded People
Psychologists agree that living in a community is better for mental and emotional health than living alone in a remote location. Planned communities are ideal for socializing, playing games, attending events and outings, and simply enjoying time with friends and family in the picturesque Florida scenery.
