Kennedy Space Center
Take a small step from Cocoa Beach and make a giant leap in outer space experiences by visiting the place where NASA has launched its rockets since 1969. See actual spacecraft, enjoy an encounter with an astronaut, watch mind-boggling footage on the giant IMAX screen and even get up close to the launch pad.
Theme Park Thrills
Florida's theme parks are the envy of the world. Anchored by famous DisneyWorld, the Disney magic now sits side-by side with a bundle of other top parks, including: Universal Studios, Universal Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Discovery Cove and Aquatica. There's endless rides, attractions, animal experiences and water parks right on the doorstep on Cocoa Beach holidays.
Cocoa Beach's 800-foot pier is right at the heart of the action and the perfect place to stroll or gaze at the flaming Florida sunset. Pause for a while to watch surfers cutting through the waves, or fishermen pulling up their evening meal. Or if you want to stay longer, browse the shops, grab a great meal or sit with a drink on this iconic Space Coast landmark.
Speed freaks won't want to miss the action up at Daytona Beach during NASCAR Speed Weeks like the Indy 500. If you can't get a ticket you can visit the International Speedway racetrack for a tour, ride shotgun round the track with a professional, or head to back the beach and drive your own vehicle along the sand.
There's no shortage of ways to make the night come alive on Cocoa Beach holidays. Foodies can chow down on everything from ocean-fresh seafood to BBQ - plus there's countless bars, pubs and clubs where you can drink or dance the night away, laugh at live comedy and listen to live music.
