New Smyrna Beach
About New Smyrna Beach
New Smyrna Beach, Florida has the Atlantic Ocean to its east, the Intra Coastal Waterway to its west, and the Mosquito Lagoon in between the two.
With the nickname of "Florida's Secret Pearl" and a motto of "cygnus inter anates" which means "a swan among ducks", you can expect to find a unique city.
It has the distinction of being the largest attempt by colonization in the New World by a member of the British Crown. Scottish physician Dr. Andrew Turnbull established "New Smyrna" in 1768 by bringing 1500 settlers to the area. However, disease, Native American raids and mistreatment by Turnbull caused it to be abandoned until 1887 when the Town of New Smyrna was incorporated with only 150 residents. In 1892 Henry Flagler's Florida East Coast Railway helped the area's economy. It became New Smyrna Beach in 1947 and now attracts over 1,000,000 visitors a year.
New Smyrna Beach has been voted Florida's Best Beach and is also known for water sports, fishing tournaments. a historic downtown, museums, performing arts centers, parks, festivals, concerts, etc.

Great presentation and service go hand in hand with high-quality tastes at this casual Italian eatery.
Service is top-notch, the food is tasty and the brunch is out of this world good.
Great craft beer selection, tasty food, and live music on some weekend nights.
