FED TV'S MY BACKYARD, MY NSB
New Smyrna Beach is the quaint beach town that time forgot. Tucked between Daytona and Cocoa Beaches, you can’t get here from there. There are no connecting bridges. This is the good news, because it has allowed this sleepy Florida town to remain unchanged and untouched through the years. But they do hold the bragging rights to a few things -- they have the most consistent surfing on the East Coast; they have lots of great local seafood; and they have earned the nickname “Shark Bite Capital of the World.”
Here is a day in the life of New Smyrna Beach over the July 4th weekend.
