Have you heard of the latest trend? Spring break is out, and Easter vacation is in! In recent years, travelers have shifted their spring vacation dates from the mayhem of March to a quieter stay in April. Easter has quickly grown as an excuse to book a beach vacation and welcome the warmer weather in the sunshine and salty air. Instead of scrambling to secure a last-minute March vacation rental, discover why you should postpone your New Smyrna Beach vacation until Easter.
The Weather is Warmer
While Florida is proud of its mild winter, it still gets chilly! Though March weather is temperate and ideal for time spent outdoors, it’s often too cold to swim in the pool or ocean. Since Easter falls between late March and mid-April, the temps have warmed to their peak beach-going range. April’s average high is a sunny 80 degrees. You’ll find New Smyrna Beach hot enough for swimming and sunbathing and cool enough to be outside without sweating. Take advantage of the fantastic weather by using our guide to a beach vacation spent outdoors!
New Smyrna Beach is Less Crowded
Spring break is famously linked to a Florida beach vacation. A week of no school is the cue for families to escape the snow and embrace the warmth of spring. In March, New Smyrna Beach vacation rentals are at their highest occupancy for the year and the shore is filled with beachgoers from around the country. While there’s excitement in the rush of spring break, it’s not nearly as relaxing as NSB in April.
Easter is the ideal time for a beach vacation as families have a quiet beach to themselves. For a truly peaceful getaway, we recommend booking a direct oceanfront home such as Blue Yonder Beach House or LaKaSa on Hill Street. With an entire house to your family and the ocean just steps from the backyard, you’ll feel as if New Smyrna Beach were exclusively yours.
Vacation Rentals are More Cost Friendly
With lower demand, come lower prices! If you’re looking to optimize your budget, it’s best to postpone your spring vacation until Easter. NSB vacation rentals have the highest rates of the year for spring break. If you wait to travel until Easter week, you’ll find upscale vacation rentals priced reasonably within your budget. Complexes such as Oceanwalk and Kiawah Bay have some of the lowest rental rates as they reside across the street from the beach.
