DID YOU KNOW? New Smyrna Beach was voted "Best Florida Beach" by the readers of Orlando Sentinel 8 years in a row. It's totally uncrowded, unspoiled, and a "natural" destination for vacationers that want the best that Florida has to offer. This island is a walking island and restaurants and shopping are all within two blocks of my rentals. We also have Flagler Avenue with plenty of nightlife and day time boutique shopping. We like to call it the Flagler crawl.
