When you think of Christmas, you might conjure up memories of freshly fallen snow and everyone suiting up in puffy coats to brave the bitter cold. However, here in the beachside town of New Smyrna, we kick the holidays up a notch.
Christmas in quaint, historical New Smyrna Beach still delivers charming streets filled with homes festively decorated for the season, the big guy in that red suit and tons of baubles (traditional or with a beachside spin) for every stocking; but there is so much more…and if you have never been here during the holidays, it is definitely something you will want to experience.
Our palm trees are decked out like the evergreens up north, boat docks are adorned with inflatable fishing Santas and the weather is inviting all year-round, so those outdoor holiday events and window shopping excursions will never chill you to the bone. Enjoy live seasonal music throughout our town, lively holiday theatrical performances at our Little Theatre and our Christmas parades not only by land, but by sea.
Yep, down here in warm and wonderful New Smyrna Beach, where there is always fun to be had on the water, we also hold a Christmas boat parade lined with boats as far as the eye can see draped in Christmas lights and making their way down our majestic waterways…all just begging to win a prize.
So come on down to New Smyrna Beach at Christmastime; and if you would like to experience Christmas by boat, visit Gerry’s Marina on the North Causeway in New Smyrna Beach, where the boat rentals and inventory on new and pristinely maintained pre-owned boats promise all of the magic of the season!
