Palm Bay, Florida

For the Outdoor and Fishing Enthusiast in You

The largest city on Florida’s Space Coast, Palm Bay fills the southernmost portion of Brevard County. It’s an active, outdoor community that welcomes visitors to enjoy spectacular recreational facilities. With over 29 parks to choose from, Palm Bay is a favorite with nature lovers and fishermen.

Explore Nature

Turkey Creek Sanctuary offers fabulous nature trails along with a nature center and a 1-mile mountain bike trail with a direct connection to an additional 8-miles. The sanctuary can also be accessed by canoe or kayak where you may see manatees, alligators, otters and gar fish. The Ted Moorhead Lagoon House is a welcome center for the Indian River Lagoon National Scenic Byway with exhibits and an education center. The Grapefruit Trails are a unique collection of fairly intense bike trails that have won over locals, the BMX community itself, and even anyone who enjoys a good hike on one of Florida’s pristine pieces of woodland.

Three Forks Marsh is 47,000+ acres with great fishing and wildlife and is a great companion to the Stick Marsh, one of the top largemouth bass lakes in Florida. Pelican Harbor Marina is a great place to launch your boat on the Indian River Lagoon or rent a kayak to explore Turkey Creek Sanctuary.

Need some supplies before you explore Palm Bay? Visit Bass Pro Shops – Palm Bay, an old Florida Cracker-style store complete with gear for fishing, hunting, and camping. At the entrance you will find a swamp buggy, ATV's and a fleet of boats that are sure to be perfect for you and your family. Visit the 16,000-gallon aquarium to see everything from largemouth bass, crappie, bowfin and catfish. Fish feedings take place every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 1 p.m.

Authentic, Family-Fun

Palm Bay provides numerous opportunities for authentic, family-fun that include outdoor adventures and eco-tourism. Hurricane Paintball Park is a fun place for the family to spend an afternoon. If swimming is your passion, Palm Bay’s Aquatic Center has a large slide, water play toys, lap lane and diving board. Grab your skateboard and hang out at McGriff’s Skate Park, or take a guided kayaking eco-tour with Palm Bay Kayaks.

Castaways Point Park is a beautiful city park that provides one of the few natural beaches along the Indian River Lagoon. Come learn about the native Indians that first inhabited the area, fish from one of the two fishing piers, and maybe see a dolphin or manatee.

Check out the fastest girls in town at Larsen Motorsports, home to the 2014 & 2015 IHRA Jet Dragster World Champion Elaine Larsen. The all new "Jet Technology Center" will walk fans through what it takes to engineer, design, fabricate and paint professional race cars.
