NEW SMYRNA BEACH -- Central Floridians from Kissimmee, Windemere, Lake Mary, Ocala, St. Augustine, Melbourne and those beyond the Sunshine State's borders may want to check out the New Smyrna Beach Area beach weeks that runs Sept. 27 to Nov. 30.
There are certainly plenty of local overnight accommodations for vacationers ands tourists looking to check out the sights and sounds with the ocean as a backdrop. Plus the beach weeks coincides with Biketoberfest, the four-day motorcycle rally in Volusia County on Oct. 17-20.
The Southeast Volusia Advertising has a brand new poster highlighting the myriad New Smyrna Beach Area beach weeks activities planned all the way through November, which also coincides with the Turkey Rod Run, another big countywide tourism event centered around Daytona with hot rods and classic wheels.
But, it's the local events in and around New Smyrna Beach, Port Orange, Edgewater, Oak Hill and Osteen that the SVAA, of course, is focusing on to draw locals and tourists alike.
Here's the Beach Weeks events listing that is sure to bring excitement for people of all ages, from families with small children to seniors:
