We all know that staying present in your everyday life is important if you want to stay connected with those around you, but in a world of busy schedules, sometimes it’s nice to “get away” without having to actually go anywhere. And if your next vacation to the Space Coast is further than what you would like, here is what we recommend you do to get you ready for your visit.

Instagram has made it possible for anyone, anywhere, to be a photojournalist, in their own way, and to easily share it with the world. So literally the world and all of its glorious splendor is at your fingertips.

Here are a few must-follow Instagram accounts that will give you a daily dose of life here on the Space Coast.
