Cocoa Beach Area

Along 72 miles of Atlantic beaches, unspoiled nature preserves exist in harmony with several space-age attractions. The Cocoa Beach Area is home to the Kennedy Space Center and the area and its environs is known as The Space Coast. Located just 45 minutes east of Orlando, the area is close to Central Florida’s amusement parks.

Daytona Beach & New Smyrna Beach Area

This may be a hot-spot for surfers and racing enthusiasts: 23 miles of warm, wide beaches make it one of the premier surfing spots on the East Coast of Florida; its reputation for speed rests on Daytona 500 auto-racing. But its millions of visitors are there for a lot more than the family-friendly beaches and the Daytona International Speedway.

Fort Pierce & Vero Beach Area

The wreck of the Spanish treasure fleet in 1715 off Florida’s Atlantic Coast gave this untarnished stretch of coastline from St. Lucie Inlet to Sebastian Inlet its “Treasure Coast” nickname. Shipwreck survivors set up camp on the site of today’s McLarty Treasure Museum.
