There’s Always a Reason to Celebrate

Any day is a great day to celebrate and there is literally something to celebrate every day of the year. And one thing that we know how to do here on Florida’s Space Coast is have a good time and make any occasion one to remember.

Whether it’s an engagement, birthday, anniversary, graduation or the promotion you’ve been after or maybe you just like to have fun and believe that every day is a day to celebrate, then here are some spots for you to consider as you plan your celebration and have a day (or night) out on the town.

Birthday

Looking for a variety of options that give you a unique way to celebrate your birthday? You should consider Downtown Melbourne. With a wide array of restaurants and nightlife to choose from, one of the more one-of-a-kind experiences is The Gathering Table. The Gathering Table is the first interactive cooking experience in the Downtown Melbourne area. This would be a fun way to celebrate your birthday as you learn to create your own food masterpiece and enjoy it as you go.

If you’d rather use a brush to create, eat at one of the other restaurants in the area first, then stroke your way through your birthday at Painting with a Twist. No matter whom you are celebrating, any and all ages are sure to have fun when they get to be Picasso for the day (or night) and create their own piece of art. If you want a late night out to celebrate, you have your pick from country and sports bars to an Irish pub and a hip gathering place. There is something for everyone.

Graduation

Walking across the stage and receiving the diploma letting you know that all the mind stretching, tears of frustration, cramming for exams, was not in vain, and is definitely something to celebrate. Although that piece of paper doesn’t define you, it does show you that hard work pays off and celebrating that accomplishment is something we want to see you thoroughly enjoy. The future is bright for you and the sky is the limit for all that you can do, so reach for the stars and take your celebration to Kennedy Space Center. Enjoy the day seeing others who have paved the way to dream big.

Take the celebration even further by booking a lunch with an astronaut or going to the all-new Astronaut Training Center. You may not have aspirations to be the next astronaut, but walking in their shoes, in a way, may just open your mind to dreaming bigger than you have ever before. You can even plan this celebration around one of the launches to make this a graduation you won’t forget.

Engagement

If you are looking for a spot to ask your special someone “the question” or if you’ve already asked and gotten an ecstatic “YES” and want to celebrate, check out Djon’s Steak and Lobster House in Melbourne Beach. This restaurant couples a formal dining experience with an open feel that leaves plenty of room to dance to the live piano entertainment whether inside or outside under the stars. You can even have a seat at the piano bar if you want a truly up close and personal serenade for you and your sweetheart.

End your time with a stroll down the pier and take in a Space Coast sunset, a beautiful way to enjoy this special moment. Djon’s also has lunch and happy hour specials if you prefer to make this an earlier celebration and great outdoor seating to enjoy the scenery as you sip on your drink of choice.

Anniversary

Celebrating an anniversary is not one to take lightly. Thinking back over the years of being together, a lot of life has been experienced, and learning to celebrate the ups and downs of life knowing that you both made it is definitely worth planning for and celebrating. The Space Coast has many different options of how you can commemorate this special day, but one of the great features of the area is that you can literally escape to paradise by hopping on one of the cruises sailing out of Port Canaveral. But before you set sail, stop in the night before your cruise for a nice dinner at The Fat Snook and be all rested up for a nice little getaway. Check out some of the cruise packages available.

Work Promotion

So you just landed that new job or you got the promotion you’ve been wanting and now you want to treat yo’ self as a pat on the back for all your hard work. Well then a weekend at the beach to kick up your feet, play, have some fun, and relax is just what you need.  Whatever your personality, there is a beach just for you. There are also spas and plenty of shopping located all throughout our coast if you want a weekend of pampering.

Just Because

Are you one of those people who are just in love with life and know that everyday is a day to celebrate but want some new ways to do that? Then you may want to check out Playalinda Brewery in Titusville. Playalinda was the Space Coast’s first microbrewery and has two locations for you to choose from. With events happening each month, come and be a part of the community whether you are a visitor to our area or one of our great locals and join in their beer garden get-togethers or hardware store hangouts. They also like to give back to the local community. So know that as you sip on one or two of their special brews, you’ll not only celebrate the life you have, but also give back. Nothing like a pay-it-forward beer!  That’s something to drink to.

The Space Coast boasts in the diversity of what we have to offer and that makes celebrating any and all occasions here on the Space Coast an easy choice.
