Space Coast Picnics: Top Parks to Take Your Take-Out

Enjoy the Space Coast and its restaurants at the same time!

Restrictions on indoor and outdoor seating are in effect for restaurants on the Space Coast. Thankfully that doesn’t mean you have to go without your favorite burger, plate of Pad Thai, or fix of biscuits and gravy at sunrise! Restaurants all over the county have created specialized to-go menus, take-and-bake boxes, and offer curbside pick-up to get their delicious dishes into your hungry hands!
