Spacecoast Staycation: Things To Do In Brevard County Florida


When most people think of things to do in Brevard County, visiting the Kennedy Space Center or Ron Jon Surf Shop  are the first things to come to mind.

But Brevard County runs 72 miles along the coast, starting with Canaveral National Seashore down to Indian River Lagoon State Park. And in between these nature preserves are a multitude of communities to explore.

Colorful murals that are popular in big cities around the world also highlight historic and commercial buildings along the Space Coast.

Bioluminescent Kayaking: This is a must-do if you ever have the opportunity. Imagine night kayaking where every stroke of the paddle causes the water to glow. It is out of this world.

Nothing beats walking through the canopy of seagrapes out onto pristine beach at Robert P. Murkshe Memorial Park. Plus, it’s typically not crowded and watching the local surfers there is quite fun.

Located in Eau Gallie, close to the Eau Gallie Arts District, Oh Biscuit is a local favorite! Oh Biscuit has traditional southern style breakfast plates, like biscuits and gravy with a side of eggs.

We couldn’t pass up lunch at El Ambia Cubano in Downtown Melbourne. The colorful atmosphere and location near the water on Crane Creek makes you feel like you’re in the Caribbean.

Located in Downtown Melbourne, Jacqueline’s Bakery was a sweet surprise. It is the only artisan and authentic French Bakery in Brevard.
