The Riverside Clinical Research Location

New Smyrna Beach is surrounded by water on three sides, creating a paradise for beach lovers and fisherman alike. Its beaches are famous, and although they are pristine, there are areas where they kick up the fun a notch and allow you to drive right on in your vehicle! New Smyrna is full of surf shops, waterfront condos and hotels, seaside boutiques and a huge array of amazing dining options. 

Want to overlook the water while you enjoy the catch of the day grilled to perfection, fresh rock shrimp piled high and dripping with butter and clams on the half shell or steamed and seeped in garlic? You’re in luck if you’re in New Smyrna Beach! Or try “treetop” noshing with ocean views at Norwood’s Treetop Bar. The happy hour there includes a colossal shrimp cocktail that will knock your socks off!

How about romantic outdoor dining bistro-style at a trendy beachside venue? The Corkscrew restaurant on Canal Street has that on the top of its menu! Go to The Garlic for gourmet Italian, including lasagna made with bits of filet and oozing with cheese, lobster fra diavolo served over homemade linguini that melts in your mouth and freshly baked artisan bread that is just perfect for dipping in extra virgin olive oil and spices. 

Thinking breakfast? There are Belgian waffles and fresh bagels made to order on Beachside, and frittatas stuffed full of your favorite veggies and piled high pancakes topped with fresh fruit on historic Canal Street. 

Don’t forget The Taco Shack, a unique, open-air venue that screams fun and serves authentic Mexican cuisine, like warm, handmade tortillas filled with your choice of delicious meats and sauces that will spice up your life! There are fish tacos, taco salads, Cubans, quesadillas, nachos, burritos, chimichangas and a host of other Latin treats too!

Edgewater itself is situated along the banks of the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon; and although the waterside community theme is intricately woven around the city of Edgewater, it is also known for its contribution to the tourism industry, housing many of Volusia County’s parks…oh yeah…and local honey!
