Explore Florida's Space Coast

Countdown to Adventure

A trip to Florida’s Space Coast is more than just a vacation. It’s an experience of a lifetime, and it’s much closer than you may think. 

Enjoy a one-of-a-kind getaway on the only beach that doubles as a launch pad. Florida’s Space Coast is 72 miles of family-friendly paradise located 45 minutes east of Orlando. Only here will you be able to experience a rocket launch up close, embark on a cruise from bustling and beautiful Port Canaveral, and relax to the sound of crashing waves on uncrowded beaches. 

Step into our lively downtown districts to discover unforgettable local cuisine, art, and entertainment. Enjoy the surprise of our top attractions like the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex where you’ll experience the past, present and future of space exploration. Or the Brevard Zoo where everyone can kayak and zip line through animal exhibits while contributing to the conservation of local ecosystems. Immerse yourself in the natural beauty that surrounds you with a guided tour of the Indian River Lagoon. Kayak with manatees, fish with dolphins and experience the awe of summertime bioluminescence. Get wild on an alligator-seeking airboat ride or search for sea turtle tracks at sunrise. There’s no end to the adventures that await.
