If you ever dreamed of living in a treehouse, then a stop at Norwood’s in New Smyrna Beach is a must. Nestled in a large live oak tree, this local gem is a whimsical welcoming beacon as you cross over the South Causeway to the city’s barrier island. Leafy branches are ensconced by expansive decking, where patrons can sip on a hand-crafted cocktail from the aptly-named Treehouse Bar and order from a well curated menu of appetizers. At night, dangling Edison-style bulbs illuminate the boughs, creating an enchanting atmosphere. There’s also live entertainment each evening, performed by local musicians and bands. When mild Florida winters creep in, the treehouse becomes even cozier. Outdoor heaters are spaced throughout, while faux-fur throws are draped across chairbacks for those who need a little extra snuggly warmth. Branch out on your next trip to New Smyrna Beach with an evening at Norwood’s for dinner and drinks.
