Smaller crowds also guarantee you have plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy relaxing days on our pristine shoreline. We’ve rounded up our top 5 reason why you can’t miss NSB this fall so you can start dreaming about your perfect getaway today!

1. Get “Fest”-ive

If you’re looking for a groovy way to spend your days, look no further than the exciting festivals and live music that will line the New Smyrna streets this fall! Film aficionados in particular won’t want to miss the Reel Deal Film Festival coming to NSB this fall. From September 30 through October 3, the International Film Fest will host multiple feature length and short film screenings across town. Many local restaurants also host regular live music nights, giving you the perfect opportunity to groove and enjoy delicious entrees and cocktails.

2.  Dine, Sip and Stroll

Fall months are the perfect time to enjoy many of the monthly wine walks we host here in NSB. On the first Saturday of each month, the businesses, bars and eateries of Canal Street host Sip and Stroll, a leisurely event that allows guests to sample a variety of craft beers and unique wines as they explore the historic district. Tickets are $25 per person, and include a souvenir glass and 12 sampling tickets that can be used at participating locations. Our local restaurants also regularly host unique dining and beverage events. such as the Sangria Social coming to Flagler Tavern on September 4.

3.  Explore Hauntingly Fun Sites

As Florida’s second oldest city, it’s safe to say we have a few fun spooks hiding around. Get into the Halloween spirit by visiting some of our haunted sites, like the Eldora House tucked away inside Canaveral National Seashore. You can also book a select number of ghost tours, such as the haunted pub crawl offered through American Ghost Adventures.

4.  Cool Off, Seaside Style

One of the best perks of visiting NSB when the seasons change is getting a break from that Florida summer heat. Cooler days make for the perfect opportunity to enjoy relaxing strolls, whether that’s a seaside adventure, an exploration of one of our many hiking and walking paths or exploring one of the many unique Trailheads that dot our area. Ranging from art gallery tours to foodie must stops, each Trailhead is the perfect travel guide to NSB. Enjoy the unique routes at our leisure and see where the trail takes you!

5.  Enjoy More Room to Relax

Visiting NSB in the fall will truly make you feel like an insider. Our lighter crowd levels during the autumnal months means you’ll have an abundance of room to lounge and spread out on our 17-miles of sandy shoreline. You’ll also benefit from more plentiful reservations available at local restaurants and fewer visitors when exploring our attractions. 

All that and more await when you visit our sandy shores. Spend your fall vacationing the New Smyrna way and start planning your vacation today! Visit https://visitnsbfl.com/ to learn more.
