With hopeful news on the horizon, many are ready to venture from home and reclaim last year’s lost vacation. Even with local safety guidelines in place, health still remains a top concern when choosing where to go. After all, relaxation can’t be achieved unless you feel totally at ease! Vacation rentals have grown to be the leading travel accommodation as guests feel infinitely safer in a private getaway. Unlike hotels and resorts, vacation condos and homes eliminate shared areas and allow guests to kick back in a private environment. Location also plays a huge factor in where guests feel comfortable going. Unlike crowded cities with heavy restrictions, New Smyrna Beach makes for an ideal destination as it allows guests to spread out and have fun in the salty air. Discover why NSB is the safest Florida beach destination and why it needs to make your travel bucket list this year.

1. Open Nature Environment

According to VRBO’s latest trend report, 61% of travelers would rather vacation in an outdoor destination than an urban one. Instead of the subways of New York City or the streets of Los Angeles, guests are turning to Mother Nature for their next trip. Along with scenic views, outdoor-based destinations have a game-changing advantage: seclusion. Places like the beach have miles of endless shore that allow people to spread out and enjoy the environment. Whether you’re sunbathing on an oceanfront balcony or body surfing in the waves, the beach grants you minimal contact with others. Destinations like New Smyrna Beach allow guests to enjoy outdoor activities, seaside relaxation, and great views without ever having to go into populated areas. Peaceful solitude by the ocean is worth the trip!


2. Private Condos and Homes Exclusive to You

The most reassuring part about venturing from home is knowing you’ll have the same privacy while on vacation. Our vacation rentals are cleaned to CDC standards and outfitted with amenities that guests don’t have to share. Unlike hotels with crowded lobbies, our NSB vacation condos and homes provide contactless check-in. Dining halls and buffet-style breakfasts are replaced with beautiful kitchens and dining rooms exclusive to you. Take privacy to the next level in one of our beach vacation homes. Most of our New Smyrna Beach house rentals give guests their own backyard, pool, and even beach access! Discover more on why vacation rentals are the safest travel option.

3. Laid-Back, Quiet Beach Town

Florida beaches conjure up images of packed crowds in swimsuits, when in reality, only hotspot places such as Miami, Daytona, and Clearwater see such traffic. Unlike its popular neighbors, New Smyrna Beach has a relaxed environment that appeals to families. Wild parties and massive college crowds remain foreign to its shore. New Smyrna Beach’s tourism is primarily local as many Central Florida natives spend their family vacations here. From quaint shopping on Flagler Avenue to miles of non-driving beach, NSB charms guests with a calm, quiet atmosphere. Curious as to what restaurants, shopping, and events this beach town holds?

4. Activities that are Naturally Social Distanced

While city-based vacations are greatly affected by restrictions and limited capacity, a vacation in New Smyrna Beach remains almost unaltered. Everyone’s favorite beach activities are naturally social distanced and in the fresh open air. While you may not be hitting up beachside bars, your favorite outdoor activities such as boogie boarding, surfing, paddle-boarding, kayaking, etc. allow you to have fun as normal. As NSB is significantly less populated than other Florida beaches, there’s plenty of room to spread out your towel and relax on the sand without coming in contact with others. From reading in your beach chair to hitting the waves, you’ll hardly notice a difference from vacations past. Read our complete guide to a beach vacation spent outdoors here!
