About New Smyrna Beach, Florida
Cygnus inter anates, which is Latin for "a swan among ducks", is a fitting motto to describe the beauty and splendor of New Smyrna Beach. Consistently voted one of the best beaches in the nation, New Smyrna Beach has continually drawn droves of people since its founding with its fertile land and ideal climate, the rich, encompassing aesthetics abound, and a laid-back charm that is unmatched. Drawing from a storied past, New Smyrna Beach combines small-town feel tied to the sea with a youthful, blossoming culture of art, music and entertainment. New Smyrna Beach is the sort of place where the distinction between home and vacation seem to disappear in the shimmering horizon of a New Smyrna sunrise.
As the second oldest city in Florida, New Smyrna Beach is enveloped in a marked history that permeates nearly every facet of local living. When the first settlers arrived to the New Smyrna Beach area in 1768, they found the subtropical climate inviting for the cultivation of sugar cane and indigo, and the inevitable production of rum. It’s no coincidence then, that over 150 years later, during prohibition, New Smyrna Beach and its river islands became a hotspot for moonshine distilleries and a hideout for rum-runners making their way from the Bahamas through Ponce de Leon Inlet. Today, you can visit any number of beach bars for a leisurely libation, but need look no further than the Old Fort Park, Turtle Mound, Sugar Mill Ruins, or any of the 800 historic buildings to find a city steeped in history and tradition.
