With sunshine nearly every day on the Space Coast, Florida, you won't need (or want) to spend much time under a roof. Get outside and explore the various bodies of water, powdery beaches, winding paths and exciting wildlife that abounds here.
The Canaveral National Seashore is one of the most expansive places on the Space Coast to surround yourself with nature and stunning views. And of course, there are the Space Coast's dreamy beaches. A tourist fave is Cocoa Beach (fish off the pier or watch surfers and stand-up paddleboarders try to master the waves). For a quieter destination with softer sand, we love Melbourne Beach and Playalinda Beach.
Beyond the beaches, ask any local where to hang out and they're sure to recommend Wickham Park. Bring a tent and go camping here, fish the lake, play disc golf, walk the paths – even bring your furry friend to the dog park here. Wickham Park is like many parks all in one.
The Brevard Zoo is well-known for its unique attractions, such as night hikes and kayaking through the property. Or for something a little wilder, look for dolphins at the port or manatees at the park or drifting underneath canals.
