Let’s start our story with the famous Turtle Mound along the coast of New Smyrna Beach, which is a centuries-old structure comprised of two acres over fifty feet high of oyster shells – thought to serve as a lookout for early detection of danger, protection against the elements and proven scientific evidence of Timucuan Indian habitation in New Smyrna Beach thousands of years BC. That is where we believe it all began and this is how the rest of the story goes…

Scottish physician, Dr. Andrew Turnbull, was commissioned by the British to colonize the area. So, he set sail in 1768 – with approximately 1,500 settlers he “recruited” largely from Minorca, of the Mediterranean Islands off the coast of Spain – with the goal to create the largest colony in North America at that time. At first, everything progressed famously. He named New Smyrna in honor of his wife’s homeland in Greece and the colony produced impressive amounts of indigo and sugar cane over the first few years. However, the colony’s good fortune was not destined to last for Dr. Turnbull and his newly established colony of New Smyrna. Certain crops didn’t fare well in the sandy soil and the colony was ravaged by disease and Indian raids. The colony was all but abandoned in 1777, its survivors fleeing to St. Augustine. In fact, there is a shrine dedicated to them at the St. Augustine Greek Orthodox Church on St. George Street.

After British rule from 1763 to 1783, the Spanish regained control of Florida. The first Seminole War took place from 1817 to 1818. Spain, then deciding Florida had become more of a burden than a boon, sold Florida to the United States for $5 million. The United States took possession of Florida in 1821 and the second Seminole War began in 1835. Sugar Mill Ruins, built on the 600 acres originally gifted to Andrew Turnbull by the British Crown, withstood both Seminole Wars and the remnants are now a historical site listed on the National Historic Register.

That takes us to Henry Flagler, an American industrialist and founder of Standard Oil and the Florida East Coast Railway which promoted the effective distribution of goods and services and, subsequently, more settlement and tourism. Flagler expanded his railway from Miami to Key West and 1912 marks the date that Flagler arrived on the first train to Key West as well as the completion of his railway.

Then came the prosperous 1920s, followed by Prohibition from 1928 to 1932. The stock market crashed in 1929 and this area was kept afloat with its citrus crops and the fact that it became a haven for rum running and speakeasies. Another interesting historical fact is that the tradition of spring break began as early as 1930 in the Daytona area. The first theme parks in the area – Cypress Gardens in Winter Haven and Marineland in St. Augustine – also emerged in the 1930s. Disney World followed suit in 1971, further facilitating growth and prosperity in the region.

The result is the remarkable culmination of architectural, educational and cultural historical nuances we enjoy here in modern day New Smyrna Beach. Today, our pristine New Smyrna Beach coastline is peppered with gorgeous properties, the most prestigious of which is The Inlet, offering scenic ocean views and neighboring lovely Smyrna Dunes Park. Loaded with luxurious amenities and safely tucked within the gated, beachside community of Minorca, The Inlet is also nearby all of the rich culture and history of New Smyrna Beach.

Visitors can delve into New Smyrna’s colorful past at its many historic sites, one of which is the mysterious grave marker in the middle of an intersection right off of Flagler Avenue! Earning its place on the “Curious Coast” list and listing on the National Historic Register, it happens to be where Douglas Dummett honored the death of his 15-year-old son Charles. Douglas Dummett was a sugar plantation owner who served as a Captain in a Florida militia to protect the area against Indian raids. He is also known for introducing the grafting of citrus trees to this area. Accounts of Charles’ death – from taking his own life after facing the hardships of being the mixed-race child of a slave owner and his slave, to being accidentally shot by his hunting partner – are all unproven. 

Another mysterious New Smyrna Beach historic site is the Old Fort Park which overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway on Riverside Drive in New Smyrna Beach. Remains of Dr. Turnbull’s mansion? The start of an 18th Century Spanish fort that was abandoned for a new location in St. Augustine? You tell me.

Or enjoy a cocktail upstairs at New Smyrna’s historic Flagler Tavern which served as a speakeasy back in the days of Prohibition.

You can also visit the New Smyrna Beach Historical Museum downtown – which pays homage to it all – for a walking tour or to peruse one of its interesting exhibits, including Native American Artifacts, Railroad Era, Turnbull Settlement and East Coast Surfing, as New Smyrna Beach also has a distinguished 200-year history in the development of international competitive surfing.

Canal Street, the epicenter of New Smyrna’s Historic District, is also a great place to take a stroll. A vibrant blend of specialty shops, art galleries and restaurants, this pedestrian-friendly street, as well as lively Flagler Avenue, are host to the many events held within New Smyrna Beach throughout the year.

It’s rejuvenating qualities will saturate your senses…the sound of waves rhythmically lapping the shoreline, the tangy, salty scent of the sea, the feel of warm, sugary sand beneath your feet and breathtaking views that only the unique stretch of coastline embraced by the Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean can provide. There is nothing on earth like 257 Minorca Beach Way, New Smyrna Beach’s most prestigious address and home to The Inlet Condominiums.

Should you choose to cocoon in your beachside oasis, safely tucked within the exclusive gated community of Minorca, bestowed with resort-style amenities, you certainly won’t be disappointed. Book your stay in a one-, two- or three-bedroom condo unit, each with a spectacular ocean view and each well-appointed with style and all of the comforts of home, including a fully-equipped kitchen, its own washer and dryer and cable TV.

Imagine waking up to your own beachfront view while enjoying your morning coffee before you start your day. If you decide you want to enjoy your luxurious accommodations by preparing a romantic dinner or curling up on the sofa with popcorn for a night in, feel free to add that to your vacation calendar too.

An upscale clubhouse – furnished with comfortable seating, an entertainment center, a bar, a pool table, a well-equipped fitness center and including his and her saunas, restrooms and free Wi-Fi – is ideal for entertaining or simply relaxing with family and friends and is also available to guests of The Inlet Condominiums. 

Outdoor amenities are just as magnificent. There are two, large, heated, oceanfront pools as well as two heated spas on the private main pool deck. Anyone for tennis? The Inlet offers four Har-Tru tennis courts and an onsite tennis pro. Guests of The Inlet Condominiums are also free to enjoy an oceanfront pavilion, barbeque grills, riverside decks, two covered parking garages and security.

Just steps from their door, guests have access to over 13 miles of beautiful beaches, neighboring an additional 24 miles of unspoiled Canaveral Seashore Park Canaveral coastline and the 220-acre Smyrna Dunes Park, with over four miles of scenic paths, wooden walkways and beach trails – a guest favorite for picnics, swimming, stunning sunsets and a gorgeous view of the world famous Ponce Inlet Lighthouse.

Don’t just take our word for it. Our treasured sea turtles prefer it too, choosing these pristine beaches and exceptional locale for nesting and the homebase from which their hatchlings will make their arduous trek to their new ocean home. Guests of The Inlet are also often gifted with views of the lively antics of porpoises at play and majestic sea birds or eagles soaring above.

Not only are The Inlet Condominiums walking distance to a variety of dining and shopping options, but these distinctive condo units are nearby all New Smyrna Beach has to offer, including challenging, meticulously maintained golf courses, inshore and offshore fishing charters, walking tours, eco tours, boat tours, sunset cruises, aerial tours, kayaking, bicycling, paddleboarding, board surfing, canoeing, museums, historical sites, movie theaters, live local musicians, nature parks and more.

If you’re intrigued by mysteries, a visit to Old Fort Park may be in order; set sail for an adventure by boat to Disappearing Island, a local favorite on which you can frolic (or lounge, of course) in the sun until the tide rolls in; or rent a paddleboard and take a lazy cruise down a scenic river. If your predilection leans more toward the relaxation and rejuvenation side of things, consider a margarita and your favorite seafood dish at one of many open-air waterfront restaurants peppering the enchanting town of New Smyrna Beach. 

The Inlet in New Smyrna Beach is also easily accessible, with convenient access to major routes including I-95, State Road 44 and Interstate 4, as well as multiple airports: Daytona Beach International Airport (just a 25 minute drive), Sanford Airport (45 minutes away) and Orlando International Airport (a little over an hour away).

And not only are Inlet Condos perfectly positioned along Florida’s most beautiful section of coastline within the welcoming town of New Smyrna Beach, but they are nearby Daytona with its vibrant nightlife, fun-filled waterparks and exhilarating race days and nights at the iconic Daytona International Speedway where NASCAR reigns supreme; and the quaint, historic city of St. Augustine, where you can take in the sights by way of an old-fashioned trolley tour, visit its famous wax museum or simply meander along its cobblestone streets. The holidays are also a remarkable time for a little side trip to St. Augustine, as its Celebration of Lights is without peer. Cocoa Beach and the rocket launches of Cape Canaveral are also out of this world; and, of course, Orlando, which is home to the world’s most popular theme parks, is a must-see for anyone with a family in tow…or pretty much just anyone.

Stay at The Inlet for a four night respite, a week, weeks or months. We don’t blame you.

A vacation should be filled with fun things to see and do in every direction, brimming with ample ways to relax and rejuvenate, and packed full of amazing scenery. There should be varied dining options from sunup ‘till way past sundown. Welcoming streets should be lined with shops for vacationers who fancy collecting a few (or many) treasured trinkets during their travels. Challenging golf courses should be many and cloudy days should be few. Talented musicians should perform for enthusiastic audiences in pleasing venues and a sense of excitement and anticipation should fill the air; and those vacationers who choose New Smyrna Beach as their vacation destination will receive nothing less. 

 

A Charming Locale

With its Beachside and Historic District pairing, New Smyrna Beach is a delightful dichotomy of unspoiled sugary sand beaches at the tip of a lively main street and an enchanting tapestry of rich history woven throughout outdoor cafes, old fashioned creameries and architecture of bygone days. Be careful though because many an unsuspecting vacationer has become bewitched by the beguiling nature of this unique seaside town, deciding never to leave it.

 

Upscale Amenities and Comfort in Just the Right Size

Most New Smyrna Beach visitors opt for ocean view accommodations on beachside, where you will find The Inlet – a lovely selection of upscale condominiums decked out in luxury and providing all the comforts of home…such as state-of-the-art and fully equipped kitchens, comfortable dining areas and living rooms with flat screen TVs and framed in that glorious ocean view. 

The Inlet at New Smyrna Beach, with every one of its stylish, well-maintained condos providing direct access to New Smyrna’s beautiful beaches just steps from their doors and majestic ocean views from their private patios or balconies, is the best of all worlds. Now if I was planning a New Smyrna Beach vacation, all of that would definitely be on my wish list.

Aside from all the luxuries you may desire when choosing a vacation rental, it is imperative to find one that suits you to a “T” – a place where you can choose from a variety of sizes from one bedroom and bathroom to several spacious bedrooms and baths. Versatility is also important. Do you want to stay for four days, four weeks or for the entire season? The world is your oyster at The Inlet.

Guests of The Inlet at New Smyrna Beach can also pack lightly, as each condo unit provides a washer and dryer; and no need to pack your peace of mind because you will find that at The Inlet too, which takes the extra steps to keep its guests safe.

So Much to See and Do

Maybe you often get the itch for a round of golf? There are plenty of challenging golf courses and putting ranges near The Inlet, as well as rentals for everything from golf carts, to bicycles, motorboats to kayaks and canoes, paddleboards and surfboards, scuba diving and snorkeling equipment and more. Take a scenic hike through the neighboring nature parks or put your swimsuit on and head over to one of the numerous waterparks in the area. There are fishing charters for those longing for the catch of a lifetime, lovely shops for uncovering the perfect beachy trinkets, eco-tours by boat where passengers often get much more than a glimpse of manatees, dolphins and bald eagles as they glide through the picturesque waters surrounding New Smyrna Beach…and if all that activity just happens to make you a little hungry, there is an unbelievable selection of dining options in New Smyrna Beach. Restaurants pepper one end of this inviting town to the other, from waterside fish camps with the catch of the day literally unloaded from fishing boats while you’re there and shellfish and fresh corn dripping with butter, to gourmet fare with a waterfront view at Norwood’s Treehouse or Italian-style at The Garlic. Have a drink with the locals at a beachside pub or tavern or an authentic Mexican meal at La Terraza on its lofty perch atop the Boston Fish House. There’s breakfast at Ruthie’s that can’t be beat, French baked goods fresh from the oven at Mon Delice and fresh deli sandwiches piled high at Yellow Dog Eats…and that, my friend, just skims the surface!

 

Convenient to Everything

In addition to its charming appeal, New Smyrna Beach is close to three public airports, several private airports and major routes that lead to exceedingly popular nearby towns.

Monday

As I begin to awake, I realize that I’m no longer home. I am staying a New Smyrna Beach’s exclusive, upscale vacation rental, The Inlet – the luxury ocean view condo framed by the Atlantic Ocean coastline and the pristine shoreline of Canaveral Seashore Park. 

I smile knowing I made the best vacation destination decision possible as I make my way out of my king-size bed and over to a floor-to-ceiling view of waves gently lapping the beach just outside my condo door. 

I nudge the sliding glass door open and I’m instantly engulfed in warm salt air. Mmm, smells just like vacation should. I step through and onto my own private patio as I contemplate my first move. Coffee right here, I think…while I take in the unparalleled scenery and plan my day.

Initially I considered a few laps in the pool or a little tennis because the pool deck is beautiful and those courts are so nice, but I think I’ll save that for tomorrow. Should I hike along the nearby walking trails of scenic Smyrna Dunes Park or take my virgin voyage to the beach and dip my toes in the sand? 

The beach won that match and after a quick shower, I head out to breakfast. I choose Wake Up Cafe because my mouth is watering for a yogurt parfait and a fresh baked muffin, while my travel companion chooses an omelet dripping with velvety cheese. 

We’re dying to check out the town, so our next stop is lively Flagler Avenue, and its beachy vibes and quaint outdoor cafes instantly win us over. We wander in and out of shops – including one entirely dedicated to flip flops and another called Dottie’s, which offers everything from bracelets and baubles to masterfully displayed driftwood art. 

Then we decide to head over to the second downtown in New Smyrna, its charming, tree-lined Historic District. There’s a surf museum, a local pub playing live music, and even though we just ate breakfast not that awfully long ago, we just can’t walk past its old fashioned creamery without stopping in for a root beer float. Then, with a day so full, all we have the energy for is heading back to our plush accommodations for a cozy night in including a late dinner we easily prepare in our condo’s state-of-the-art, fully-equipped kitchen. 

Tuesday

With a little more jump in my step the next morning, I opt for tennis with the on-site pro at my choice of four Har-Tru courts. Next on our agenda is a Turtle Mound River Tour, a two-hour pontoon boat ride along the Indian River, offering breathtaking views of Canaveral National Seashore, dolphin and bald eagle sightings and intriguing historic tidbits and funny quips from our hilarious guide.

We topped it off with fresh caught seafood at JB’s Fish Camp, a casual waterfront restaurant and bar brimming with both locals and visitors…all fully enjoying themselves over delicious fare. Feeling adventurous and in honor of our day at sea, my beverage of choice is a “Salted Sea Dog” made from citrus vodka, pineapple and grapefruit juices and rimmed with salt. My meal is the blackened seafood sampler with shrimp, mahi, alligator and a piece of corn on the cob. My date selected a frozen mudslide and steamed clams.

Wednesday

We decide to take it easy midweek and head over to the pool deck, where we get in a few laps in the large, heated pool, soak in the hot tub, comfortably lounge in the sun; and since The Inlet also has both men’s and women’s saunas, we enjoyed those too.

Then we took relaxation to the next level with an afternoon at the Riverview Spa. My mani-pedi ensures that my tootsies are beach-ready and I now sport an effervescent dayglow yellow on my fingernails to match my mood.

Thursday

Since America’s most beloved theme-parks and attractions are only approximately an hour away in Orlando, Saturday was our Disney World day and you can just imagine what that entailed! We get there in a flash and take in all the sites, enjoy a concert at the House of Blues, check out EPCOT’s interactive space training lab, experience wild animal encounters at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, see the flamingos on Discovery Island, get our game on at the Frontierland Arcade and even brave the water rides at Castaway Park. We’re definitely coming back soon because there is so much more to see and do!

Friday

Today we drive just 20 minutes north to Daytona Beach, “The World Center of Racing” where we relive the early days of racing through authentic memorabilia at the Living Legends of Auto Racing Museum. We dine on grouper fingers and crab cakes at Crabby Joes, a dynamic hotspot with delicious eats (including plenty of menu options for landlubbers) perched on the end of a pier extending over the ocean.

After being in Daytona, we catch race fever (which isn’t a bad thing) and decide to stop at the Little New Smyrna Speedway, where we watch the quarter midget races to round out our evening.

Saturday

Ruthie’s Restaurant is a favorite among locals and famous for really good down home breakfast; and, of course, after learning all that, we pencil it in to see what all the fuss was about. We can now say from experience that Ruthie’s certainly lives up to its hype. The coffee and smiles flow and I order the “Hearty Breakfast” which comes with two eggs, country fried steak, grits or home fries and toast…maybe not the best choice before squeezing into my bathing suit, but definitely worth it!

We decide that since New Smyrna is famous for its beach which is located just outside our door, we would be remiss if we didn’t enjoy a beach day soon. So…we lather up with sunscreen and make that magic happen, complete with wiggling toes in the sand, a little shelling and a swim in the gentle surf.

Tonight is our date night. So, I make reservations at The Garlic, New Smyrna Beach’s gourmet Italian restaurant. Its atmosphere is reminiscent of an Italian garden with pizza ovens creating tantalizing aromas while strands of white tea lights sparkle overhead. I’m thinking of splurging on this meal…as if we haven’t already.

…and splurge we do! After a romantic meal consisting of the eggplant tower appetizer, garlic mussels for me (so much for date night) and pepper bacon wrapped filet for him, washed down with a nice chianti; we take off in search of some entertainment – which is never hard to find in New Smyrna Beach.

What we discover is “Dueling Pianos” at a local pub called Peanuts. This talented duo was playing tons of songs of every kind and putting on such a great show. I can’t remember when I had such a good time.

Sunday 

Today is reserved for exploring, so first things first. I visit one of the nearby New Smyrna Beach rental shops, which carry everything from golf carts, to surfboards and snorkeling gear, to rent a bicycle for a pleasurable morning ride through the adorable streets of New Smyrna Beach.

Since the weather was beautiful, I figure on a little outdoor dining and decide on brunch at Third Wave Café and Wine Bar – a fusion of southern coastal cooking and global inspiration. After being seated in the outdoor garden area, I sweeten things up even more with their “Dulce-de-Leche Crepe” filled with bananas, berries, almonds, caramelized milk, sugar jam and topped with a sprinkling of powdered sugar. How could that be bad, right?

Now it’s off to explore Sugar Mill Ruins and then hike through the two miles of elevated walkways within Smyrna Dunes Park, which neighbors The Inlet and rests on 73 gorgeous acres surrounded by water on three sides. It is so peaceful and relaxing that I decide to extend that feeling with a glass of wine on my private balcony while I watch the sun slowly set upon my gorgeous ocean view.

I could get used to this. Thank goodness we booked more than one week. I still want to climb the steps of famous Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and take in its panoramic view, paddleboard down the scenic Indian River, set sail on a Marine Discovery Center guided full moon kayak tour, enjoy a round of golf on one of the many challenging golf courses nearby, travel a little north of Daytona to meander through the historic streets of charming St. Augustine, our country’s oldest town, and take a short drive south toward Cocoa Beach so I can experience a Port Canaveral rocket launch firsthand.
