Cape Canavral, Cocoa Beach & Melbourne
Florida's Space Coast is home to a number of first-class beaches and Cocoa Beach is no exception. Check out the Kennedy Space Center, which launches the space shuttles, the world famous Ron Jon Surf Shop or the area's endless miles of pristine beaches. The annual Surfing Festival that explodes onto the beach every Easter is a must visit. Spend your days surfing, taking eco tours, enjoying national parks, or deep-sea fishing. Swim with manatees, learn to kite board, and or tour the beach by scooter. There is so much to do in this bustling beach town.
Beyond the beach, downtown Melbourne (a.k.a Melbourne Main Street) boasts a bevy of great shops, galleries and eateries plus a family street party called Friday Fest on the 2nd Friday evening of each month. Melbourne is a good choice for a each holiday offering several oceanfront accommodations from large hotels to charming inns.
