Who doesn’t love a long summer weekend?! While Memorial weekend is primarily a time to express gratitude for those who have served, it’s also evolved into the first official welcome of summer. New Smyrna Beach is the destination of choice for Florida residents looking to spend a few days in the sun. Holiday weekend trips to NSB are quick, easy, and absolutely unforgettable. Find out why you need a mini-trip to the beach and book your NSB holiday weekend in one of our vacation condos or homes.
Quick Drive from Central Florida
The whole point of a weekend getaway is that it is easy! Escape from the routine of everyday life and drive to the coast for a few days of R&R. Florida cities like Orlando are less than an hour and a half away from New Smyrna’s coast. There’s no need to shift your schedule or use PTO as you can drive over on Friday afternoon and leave Monday evening. On Memorial Day weekend, we offer complimentary 5PM checkout so you can spend Memorial Day in a beach chair by the waves. Deciding where to stay?

Easy Trip with Little Planning
Unlike trips to metropolises or overseas, vacations in New Smyrna Beach are the easiest to plan because they revolve around one thing: the beach! There’s no stress of filling up a long weekend with activities as the main activity only requires a swimsuit and a beach chair. The best holiday weekends in NSB are a constant rotation of the pool, beach, and Flagler Avenue. If you need ideas on what to explore, read what we recommend for the Ultimate Day on Flagler Avenue. Those that don’t plan on straying from the tide can book a deluxe beach package with Beachfront Bellhop where they’ll deliver beach chairs, an umbrella, towels, snacks, a cooler, and more.
Fun Memorial Weekend Events
While New Smyrna Beach stays laid back during Memorial Day, there are still a few events you won’t want to miss! Start the holiday weekend on a healthy note and join NSB’s Turtle Trot 5k on Saturday, May 28th. This 5k starts on Flagler Avenue and runners get to start their morning jogging together on the beach. If walking is more your pace, catch Flagler Ave’s Wine Walk on Saturday, May 28th from 1-7pm.
