“The Historical Site”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

There is much to see at the Historical site; they show you all about the Great fishing, Shrimping, and Hunting in New Smyrna. It shows all about the building of a great community. If you visit one Place I would recommend going to Turtle Mound Historical Site and learn why it got it's name pertaining to Turtle Mound. Enjoy.

“Back to Nature”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Cape canaveral is a wonderful place to visit if you want to get away from the condos and people. Truly beautiful this time of year be sure to bring insect repellent for the river side. You can hike on the lagoon side or walk across the road and walk down the beach. I go to the beach there weekly. You can buy a yearly pass and I think it is only $3/ car/ day

Love this place to just go and get away from it all! Take a picnic and wath thw waves crash the beach. Explore the sights, take a kayak, fish, hike, look for the turtles, see the turtle nests. This place is very well maintained!

“NATURAL FLORIDA”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

No, this isn't a National Park with mountains, craggy peaks, alpine lakes and Big Horn sheep...but it is Florida as the natives knew it thousand of years ago. And if you appreciate unadorned beaches and vast expanses without anyone in sight, this is for you. Throw in the lagoon and the best Red Fish in the world and it becomes an exciting destination.

Just north of the buffer zone surrounding Kennedy Space Center, the National Park Service has made a little gem for visitors. A new visitors center is quite nice and the regular pontoon boat tour of the lagoon is a great value and you'll see areas you would never encounter otherwise.

Visit New Smyrna Beach, the Atlantic's best kept secret, and enjoy the Canaveral National Seashore.
