Fall in Love with New Smyrna Beach

Enjoy a cozy coastal getaway with your partner this fall to romantic New Smyrna Beach.

Book a stay at a local bed and breakfast or hotel and enjoy luxurious rooms and amenities. The Black Dolphin Inn offers award-winning accommodations with fantastic views of the Indian River Lagoon. Each of its 14 rooms are wonderfully well-appointed and feature spa baths. For the ultimate in romance, spring for the Luxury Bay Front room—where a free-floating soaking tub takes center stage.

At The Riverview Hotel, enjoy swoon-worthy views from the sophisticated Grand Riverview Suite. Adorned with Victorian style furnishings, the room includes a separate sitting area and private balcony.

Several of the bed and breakfasts and hotels offer add-on romance packages. At the quaint Anchor Inn, a beautiful fruit platter, hand-dipped chocolate strawberries, candles and a bottle of wine or champagne can be delivered to your room before your arrival. At Black Dolphin Inn, you can select the Honeymoon Celebration Package that includes: a chilled bottle of Veuve Cliquot Brut Yellow Label, a bouquet of one dozen roses, scattered silk rose petals and candles, scented bath amenities, and a tray of four decadent red velvet cupcakes surrounded by chocolate-covered strawberries.

There’s plenty to do together in New Smyrna Beach. Cuddle up together on the beach as you watch the sunrise over the Atlantic. Or sleep in and set sail on a sunset cruise from the Marine Discovery Center. Stroll hand in hand as you sip wine during the monthly wine walk event on Flagler Avenue. Whether you want to wile away the hours in the sand or explore beyond the shore, it’s all possible in New Smyrna Beach.

With a profusion of charming local eateries, it’s easy to find a table for two. Fine Italian dining can be found at Limoncello South. Starters at this cozy spot include the beef carpaccio and the beet cobbler. The latter is a martini glass filled with marinated beets, balsamic-glazed strawberries, a mascarpone-Greek yogurt swirl, crispy goat cheese fritter and almonds. Favorite entrees include the pear and gorgonzola ravioli, frutto di mare, and veal marsala.

Tucked away off Flagler Avenue, the Courtyard Grill is a hidden gem—ideal for a quiet dinner out. The restaurant’s seating is in an intimate, covered courtyard. Choose from a varied menu with steaks, seafood, pasta, and more. There’s also live jazz music each weekend.   

Impress your special someone with a weekend away this fall to New Smyrna Beach.
