Great Things To Do While You’re RVing on the Space Coast
Go to the Beach!
What’s a trip to the Space Coast without a trip to the beach! Most beach parking all along the Space Coast is spacious enough to accommodate an RV, however choosing a campground like Jetty Park puts you right in the action. Check out beach rental operations along the beach for all your umbrella, chair, surfboard and boogie board needs. Imagine spending a whole day in the surf without carrying a thing!
Check out the Lagoon
The Indian River Lagoon is the perfect place to take in some scenery, fish, and explore. Renting a kayak from your campground or one of the many kayak and paddleboard rental operations along the lagoon is a great way to experience the Space Coast! Exploring mangrove tunnels, seeing bioluminescence, and watching manatees bob around you is an experience you’ll never forget. It’s also a reason you may just extend your site reservation, and that’s OK lots of people do!
Hike the Trails
Get a new perspective of the Space Coast by hiking or biking the trials. Parks like Chain of Lakes park in Titusville, the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and the Sebastian Inlet State Park all feature extensive walking and biking trails though several Space Coast ecosystems. No bike? No Problem! There are plenty of bike rental operations where you’ll be able to rent a mountain or road bike and even a beach cruiser if you’d like to take your pedaling to the shoreline!
