About New Smyrna Beach On this beach north of Cape Canaveral, automobiles may be driven along the stretch of firm white sand from the inlet south to 27th Avenue. Drivers should heed signs noting unsafe areas. Overnight parking or camping are not permitted on the beach. A daily driving toll of $10 per car is charged; annual passes are available for both residents ($25) and nonresidents ($100). Tollbooths are at each approach.
The foundations of the Turnbull Ruins/Old Fort, built of coquina, are on N. Riverside Drive between Washington and Julia streets. These ruins, made of walls 3 feet thick, represent a local mystery—it has never been established if the foundation is the unfinished remains of a pre-colonial fort or the incomplete beginnings of a mansion for the Turnbull family. The remains of a large plantation's sugar mill can be seen at Sugar Mill Ruins, 600 Old Mission Rd. Built in the early 1800s, the mill was destroyed during the Second Seminole War.
The Atlantic Center for the Arts, 1414 Art Center Ave., provides studio space and facilities for resident artists and offers exhibitions and events throughout the year; phone (386) 427-6975.
