Taking on a remote stretch of the Indian River Lagoon paralleling the wildest part of Canaveral National Seashore, our group of paddlers turns back until only two kayakers are left, fighting the wind to reach our goal.
We launched a new full-color edition of 50 Hikes in Central Florida at the National Trails Festival in Deland the first weekend of October. Take a peek inside.
Reflections on our National Parks during the Centennial celebration this week, with a wander through Canaveral National Seashore in both New Smyrna Beach and Titusville
Where to Stay in New Smyrna Beach
While New Smyrna is too close to home for us for an overnight stay, we’ve had the pleasuring of visiting The Riverview Hotel, which is right at the drawbridge to Flagler Avenue. It’s a beautiful slice of Old Florida. Seahorse Inn, right at the beach, is a well-maintained reminder of 1960s road trips. US 1 is a hotbed of retro mom & pop motels, most of which look great from the road: ask to see a room.
