Cape Canaveral

Like other towns in Brevard County, Cape Canaveral embodies the relaxed lifestyle many seek after, with its abundant sunshine, sandy beaches, and pleasant subtropical/temperate climate. Despite being home to the renowned Kennedy Space Center, the city has maintained its laid-back atmosphere, unaffected by technological advances. Beneath its casual charm lies the bustling Port Canaveral, a hub for cargo, naval, and cruise ship activities.

Stroll along its shoreline and make it a point to enjoy the wildlife of the 58,000-acre Canaveral National Seashore, underdeveloped for the discerning naturalist’s viewing pleasure. A few more steps and you should reach the shoreline of one of the finest cities in Brevard, Cocoa Beach.

Be sure to check the city’s official website for the schedule of rocket launches. There’s nothing like seeing a rocket launch while decked out on Florida’s famous shores.
