Edgewater: True To Its Name
True to its name, this city just south of New Smyrna Beach lies along the edge of the Indian River, putting great fishing and spectacular views right at your doorstep. It’s no surprise that legendary boat company Boston Whaler recently expanded its headquarters here, or that this has become the epicenter of the area’s blueways.
Launch from Menard-May Park to explore these trails; paddle around mangrove islands to see pelicans, herons, and other birds. Go angling for redfish with an expert Edgewater River Guide. Then dine on fresh fish at a local hot spot like JC’s Riptides.
