Situated 15 miles south of Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach lies just beyond earshot of the rumble of stock cars and Bike Week engines. It’s a good thing, too: Packed with history and a subtly hip edge, this seemingly quiet beach town has plenty to say.Much of that history is hiding in plain sight in this Volusia County locale about an hour’s drive northeast of Orlando.A beachgoer can get a quick primer on the origins of New Smyrna Beach at spots such as Old Fort Park overlooking the Indian River.
