Stretching 72 miles along Florida’s East Coast, the Space Coast continues to enliven, entertain and inspire more and more visitors each year. While it is best known as the home of America’s space program, Orlando’s closest beaches and some of the best surfing in the country, this is only a taste of what this area has to offer.
Some of our attractions include:
Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex – Tour launch areas, meet a veteran astronaut, explore a rocket garden, train in spaceflight simulators, and even view a launch.
Brevard Zoo – Stroll through shaded boardwalks or while paddling a kayak, experience over 550 animals including alligator, giant anteaters, cougar, cheetahs,eagles, giraffes and more.
Cocoa Beach Pier – Home to several restaurants and bars, plus cool shops, the Cocoa Beach Pier is a “can’t miss” when visiting the Space Coast.
Cape Canaveral National Seashore – Situated on a barrier island along Florida’s east coast, Cape Canaveral national Seashore offers year-round recreation including fishing, boating, canoeing, surfing, sunbathing, swimming, hiking and camping.
Other highlights of the park include the Seminole Rest and Eldora Statehouse, which represent the pioneer era of settlement in Florida.
Ron Jon’s Surf Shop – Hailed as the world’s most famous surf shop, Ron Jons Surf shop has over 52,000 square feet spread across three levels. Expect a huge selection of boards, bikinis and surf clothing.
