This Easter weekend, your family can plan a fun and relaxing getaway to Florida’s Space Coast. With beautiful beaches and exciting Easter activities the whole family will enjoy, you’ll be sure to have a blast soaking up the sun, building sandcastles and bringing your family closer together.
Stay and Relax this Easter
If the kids have off school on Good Friday, you have the perfect opportunity to pack up the car and head to the coast for a peaceful long weekend. You can stay at one of the hotel chains lining the beaches along Cocoa Beach and down through Melbourne’s beaches, or even spend the weekend in a cozy bed and breakfast. Nothing beats waking up on Easter morning to the serene sound of ocean waves crashing on the shore.
Your family can choose to relax on one of the many picturesque beaches on Florida’s Space Coast, from Port Canaveral’s Jetty Park, where you can watch gigantic cruise ships glide by, to Cocoa Beach where you can enjoy plenty of beachfront restaurants, amenities and the Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier. On Easter Sunday, you and the family can even head down to the beach at Lori Wilson Park and catch the 53rd annual Easter Pro-Am where tons of surfers – amateur and pro – will hit the surf and compete to win some cash.
Easter Weekend Excitement
But, aside from the beautiful beaches on Florida’s Space Coast, there is so much to do here that your Easter weekend will be filled with exciting attractions and entertainment. Take an airboat ride, visit Kennedy Space Center, or even rent paddle boards or kayaks and explore Florida nature. You can even check out some exciting events happening that weekend such as the Spring Central Florida Car Show or the 12th Annual Revolution Technologies Pro Tennis Classic.
Not to mention, nothing says Easter like an egg hunt. When you head to Florida’s Space Coast for Easter weekend, you can be a part of the biggest egg hunt in the county. Head out to Viera High School in Melbourne on Saturday, April 15 at 11:00 a.m. for an Easter Egg ‘Stravaganza. You and your family can enjoy free pizza, games, inflatables, music, snow cones and – of course – over 10,000 hidden eggs.
