Things to do in Cocoa Beach

THE KENNEDY SPACE CENTRE

The name already tells you everything – the Space Coast was the place where the first Americans were sent into space to conquer the moon. The Kennedy Space Centre is a fabulous experience that will make you feel like one of the astronauts who got the chance to see earth from space. From here, American astronauts confronted and overcame the challenges of space flight, conquered the moon, and set out aboard scores of shuttle flights to launch – and repair – satellites and build the International Space Station.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if an asteroid or comet hit your home-town? What would your neighbourhood look like? Discover the possible impacts and risks of asteroids and comets at the new Great Balls of Fire interactive exhibit at Kennedy Space Centre Visitor Complex. Blast off to the asteroid belt aboard a “spaceship”, build your own solar system, and learn how to identify meteorites and much more.

VALIANT AIR COMMAND AND VINTAGE WARBIRD MUSEUMM

Even after visiting the Kennedy Space Centre, your journey through the world of aerospace is not yet finished. The Valiant Air Command and Vintage Warbird Museum is a great place to discover planes from the First World War and to admire what pilots flew in at the beginning of the air force.

CANAVERAL NATIONAL SEASHORE

Nature, nature and even more nature is one of the reason why Florida is famous across the world. Canaveral National Park, the Indian River Lagoon, the Enchanted Forest are all protected areas where intact nature gives us a fantastic spectacle. The Canaveral National Seashore is the biggest turtle nesting area in the US and the second largest in the world.

BREVARD ZOO

The Brevard zoo, voted one of the top 10 zoos in the U.S, is one of the best ways to spend a day with your kids, providing them with the most exciting day of the holidays. There are over 550 species including eagles, alligators, cougars, kangaroos and many more. The newest attraction is the Treetop trek, a thrilling adventure that will take you to the top of giant trees and test your nerves all along the way with some obstacles.

HIT THE WAVES

With kilometres of beach, it is no secret that the region counts as one of the best surf spots in the US and you will find many spots to practice your surf. On top of providing some great waves, the beach can be tailor made for any interest, which means that para-sailing, kayaking and many other activities are also available on the shores.
