Beachfront parks like the popular Flagler Avenue Park just off historic Flagler Avenue, or the Hiles boat ramp and the Lake Ashby boat ramp, are ideal places for strolling, biking or canoeing. If you are more into outdoor activities, visit Lake Ashby Park, a 124-acre rural setting park in the Osteen area that offers a campsite, playgrounds, sports courts, horseback riding, fishing, and many other activities.
Many other historical, cultural and special interest sites receive hundreds of visitors of all ages in the New Smyrna Beach Area. Popular attractions include the famous Sugar Mill Ruins, witness to the uprisings of Native Americans in the early 1800s and battleground for the war between the Seminole Indians and the United States. To learn more about the second oldest settlement in Florida, you may want to visit the New Smyrna Museum of History, featuring the Turnbull Colony exhibit and other showcases from the Pre-Columbian era, Spanish Periods, British Period, Seminole Wars, Civil War, Railroad Era and the 20th Century. Lastly, you will not be able to miss the most prominent landmark in New Smyrna Beach: the Turtle Mound. Created by the Indian Timucuan civilization back in 2000 BC, this is a turtle-shaped kitchen midden made of shellfish remains, oyster shells and bones that can be seen seven miles out at sea, standing 50 feet tall and covering two acres.
