Edgewater Florida

Edgewater FL
Edgewater FL

Edgewater has a most appropriate name. This Volusia County city can be found on Florida’s east coast along the Indian River and adjacent to the Mosquito Lagoon Aquatic Preserve. The open waters of the Atlantic Ocean are on the other side of a thin barrier island, as is common along parts of the Florida coast. Proximity to the Canaveral National Seashore and the Kennedy Space Center are two good reasons to visit Edgewater Florida. Both of these major attractions are to the near south of the city. To the near north, New Smyrna Beach and Daytona Beach present other area destinations to consider, and it’s only about an hour’s drive inland to get to Orlando.

Edgewater is a member of the Florida Paddling Trail Association and is a great place to launch kayaking and canoeing adventures, with Menard-May Park serving as a major launching point. The park, which is found at 413 S. Riverside Drive in Edgewater, also has restrooms and a fishing pier. For land-based recreation in Edgewater Florida, you can hop on the East Central Regional Rail-Trail, which is paved and runs more than five miles from Green Springs Park to Sate Road 415.
