Jetty Park

Jetty Park is one of the most popular recreation spots in Brevard County. Besides the 4.5 acre family beach with its designated areas for swimming and surfing (lifeguards on duty year round), one of this park's best-loved features is the 1,200 foot Malcolm E. McLouth Fishing Pier. Specially designed beach wheelchairs give access both to the beach and pier. A recently renovated and expanded building on the boardwalk houses an air-conditioned refreshment center and a bait and tackle shop.

Port Canaveral Overview

 

Port Canaveral has developed from a small oil and shrimp port into the second busiest cruise port in the Western Hemisphere. Today it is an international hub for cargo grown from humble beginnings. In the mid-1950s, a cargo vessel loaded with newsprint and a petroleum tanker made the first calls on Port Canaveral and Tropicana tanker vessels began transporting refrigerated single-strength orange juice to New York.

The Cove at Port Canaveral is a waterfront recreational area. It is home to a variety of restaurants, shops, charter boats and attractions. Throughout the port, several restaurants and eateries provide a range of menu choices from finger foods to ice cream to full-course dinners. Seafood is a specialty with the day's catch going directly from the deck of the fishing boat to the restaurant kitchen.
The Space Coast
Explore a place where the old fashioned pioneer spirit meets the space age, where pristine natural treasures merge with vibrant cities. Discover the Space Coast's rich history and out of this world attractions in Cocoa Beach, Melbourne, Titusville, Merritt Island and Palm Bay. Meet the Space Coasts's oldest inhabitants by hiking or kayaking through one of the four national wildlife refuges that majestic herons, gentle manatees and toothy alligators call home. Move from the prehistoric to the futuristic at the Kennedy Space Centre, where you can meet real astronauts, tour the cosmos and witness the power of a NASA launch first hand.
Put the space boots away in favor of your sea legs and enjoy a luxury cruise out of Port Canaveral or a chartered fishing trip in search of a big one. If you prefer dry land, stroll along the 72 miles of sandy beaches and soak up the sun.
The Space Coast is a place where residents and visitors alike challenge championship links, surf emerald waves and enjoy romantic seafood dinners at waterfront restaurants.

Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is an overlay of NASA's John F Kennedy Space center where the world's most advanced technology launched man to the moon, and today, continues space exploration. However, there is another kind of 'space' here, one that is set for over 500 different species of wildlife and 1000 species of plants. Contained within this 35 mile long barrier island is a rich abundance of plants and animals from both the subtropical and temperate climate zone. It is strategically located on the "Atlantic Flyway", a major bird migration corridor, and is a key resting stop for many migrating bird species.
Merritt Island remains unsurpassed as a refuge for endangered species. Currently, the refuge manages habitat for 20 federal and state listed threatened and endangered species, more than any other single refunge in the US. The unique relationship the Refuge shares with NASA bears testimony that nature and technology can peacefully coexist.
