Fireworks, corn on the cob, evening barbeques, and beach vacations make the Fourth of July the iconic American tradition that it is. Before you start planning your barbeque menu, you’ll need to secure a spot to celebrate first! Our New Smyrna Beach vacation rentals are in high demand for the Fourth of July, and we recommend booking your vacation now! Need help finding your summer getaway? Below is our best advice for booking an unforgettable Fourth of July vacation.
Claim a Front Row Seat to the Ocean
Nothing says patriotic like red, white, and ocean blue! Elevate your July 4th festivities with a direct oceanfront vacation rental. Not only do direct oceanfront condos and homes have the best views of NSB, but they are also the closest to the beach itself. Set up a snack station on the balcony and grab watermelon slices and chips in between trips to the shore. If your family has teens, you’ll love kicking back on the balcony and watching the kids play frisbee on the beach below.
While New Smyrna Beach does not permit alcohol on the shore, oceanfront rentals provide a loophole. Blend up frozen margaritas in the kitchen and take them to the oceanfront balcony. Though you may not be on the sand, you can still sip cocktails as you tan in the sun and listen to the waves! See our easy summer beach cocktail recipes.
Don’t Leave Your Dog at Home!
A family summer vacation is not complete if your pup is at home. Don’t waste time scheduling a dog sitter or searching for an open kennel when you can just bring your pup along. We have over 75 condos and homes that welcome pets. Our NSB pet-friendly vacation rentals are in hot demand for the Fourth of July, so if you find one, book it!
New Smyrna Beach does not permit animals on the main beach, but there’s an entire beachfront park on the northern tip that allows for furry friends. Visit Smyrna Dunes Park and see our full guide of NSB pet-friendly information.
If You Want to Save, Stay Across from the Beach
Vacationing on a budget? There’s a NSB rental for that! The money-savvy traveler will find complexes across the street from the beach are priced much lower than beachside rentals. Oceanwalk condos are a fantastic option for a Fourth of July stay as they’re inexpensive and offer a host of on-site amenities. We recommend booking an ocean view condo that’s right by the crosswalk to the beach! Check out Oceanwalk 20-205, Oceanwalk 2-203, and Oceanwalk 12-404.
If you prefer to celebrate July 4th in a NSB beach house, you’ll find ocean view homes are affordable and still easily accessible to the beach. Check out The Tiki Townhouse, Sea Haven, and Grand Oasis.
Now that you’re equipped with our best vacation planning tips, it’s time to secure your Fourth of July vacation rental. Celebrate America’s birthday in a direct oceanfront, ocean view, pet-friendly, or luxury condo or home. Don’t wait long, our Fourth of July vacation rental inventory books quickly!
