Space Coast Office of Tourism on the Move
COCOA, FL (December 16, 2021) – The Space Coast Office of Tourism will be saying goodbye to their offices in Historic Cocoa Village and are moving across the river to Cocoa Beach effective December 14, 2021. The Office will relocate to 150 Cocoa Isles Blvd, St. 400, Cocoa Beach, FL 32931. The location is centrally located in the tourism district and is a short driving distance to many of the prominent attractions in the county. “When looking at where the bulk of tourism occurs, it made sense for us to be in the heart of the tourism district,” said Peter Cranis, Executive Director of the Space Coast Office of Tourism. “We will certainly be able to keep a finger on the pulse of tourism from our new offices. An additional benefit will be to have the space to conduct many of our committee meetings there which will save staff time and mileage expenses.”
The move comes at a time where the Space Coast Office of Tourism has seen tremendous rebounds from the pandemic in 2020 and have even surpassed the record numbers seen in 2019.
In terms of the Visitor Information Center, it will also move but be located in a strip mall location at 267 W. Cocoa Beach Causeway, Cocoa Beach, FL 32931, across the street from the Dinosaur Store and Museum. This location was chosen due to its proximity to local dining and shops, and is at one of the busiest intersections in Cocoa Beach and the County (AIA and SR 520), just around the corner from Ron Jon Surf Shop. The Visitor Information Center will officially open in 2022 after renovations are complete. Plans for a media Open House and Grand Opening are underway. Moving to Cocoa Beach should see a significant increase in traffic to the Visitor Information Center. “We have loved our time in Historic Cocoa Village over the past near-decade, getting to know our neighbors and being immersed in the area. We’re excited for the same opportunity to do this in Cocoa Beach,” said Cranis.
