With a warm climate and sandy stretches, it's no surprise that West Palm Beach is a popular vacation spot.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near West Palm Beach: Delray Beach (Wakodahatchee Wetlands & Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens) and Lion Country Safari (in Loxahatchee). Spend the 9th (Sun) on the water with a fishing tour. And it doesn't end there: browse the different shops at CityPlace, take in nature's colorful creations at Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society, and pick up a one of a kind souvenir at West Palm Beach Antique Row Art & Design District.

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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cocoa Beach: Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse & Museum (in Ponce Inlet) and Titusville (American Space Museum & Space Walk of Fame & NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Cocoa Beach, wander the streets of Cocoa Village, cast your line with a fishing tour, and examine the collection at Parker Brothers Concepts.
