Situated in one of Florida's busiest vacation areas, Cocoa Beach burst onto the world scene in the 1960s, when it became a popular setting for parades honoring the nation's "Apollo" astronauts.
Shop till you drop at The Florida Key Lime Pie Company and Derek Gores Gallery. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Andy Romano Beachfront Park and Canaveral National Seashore. Change things up with these side-trips from Cocoa Beach: Ponce Inlet (Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse & Museum, Lighthouse Point Park, & more), Titusville (American Space Museum & Space Walk of Fame, A Day Away Kayak Tours, & more) and New Smyrna Beach (New Smyrna Town Beach, Galleria di Vetro, & more). There's still lots to do: immerse yourself in nature at Sebastian Inlet State Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Round Island Beach Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Cocoa Beach, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
