Nestled just west of the Atlantic Ocean is Florida's Space Coast. Made up of Titusville, Cape Canaveral, Merritt Island, Cocoa Beach, and other cities, the Space Coast is famous for hosting all of NASA's space launches. While this is fascinating in itself, there is so much more to a vacation to Space Coast than meets the eye.
When it comes to finding ways to relax, you can't go wrong with Florida. Sunny beaches, fabulous weather, great food—it's everything you want in a vacation. One piece of heaven on Earth that you truly need to explore is Port Canaveral, which is located at the heart of Eastern Central Florida. "The Port," as it is also known, provides more activities for leisure than any other port in Florida. There are also plenty of hotels in Port Canaveral that can get you close to the action.
For those who love historic displays, the Exploration Tower should be first on your list. If cruises are your thing, Port Canaveral is also home to three of the top cruise lines in the industry. And, if you love great food, you'll want to check out many of the local seafood restaurants. Home to some of the best seafood on the Space Coast, you can quite possibly enjoy a catch that was brought in that very day by charter fishing boats.
