A soccer match Saturday morning, building sandcastles below a rocket launch Saturday night, a family weekend at Walt Disney World®, all with time to get the chores done. Weekend fun is unlimited, while short commute times and sunny evenings keep your Monday – Friday open for more time together, and less stress for everyone.
View one of the world’s greatest sights from your own backyard. And with more launches than ever before, you’ll be witnessing history time and time again.

From primary care, to emergency care, healthcare on Florida’s Space Coast will have you covered in any situation. Major hospitals such as Health First, Parrish Healthcare, and Rockledge Regional Medical Center are found throughout the county for easy access and exceptionary care.
Over a dozen unique municipalities provide a neighborhood option for any lifestyle. From downtown dwellings to acres of farmland, whatever you like to call home, Florida’s Space Coast has it.
119 parks, 44 beach access sites, 10 school athletic sites, 3 campgrounds, 3 nature centers, 3 education centers, 2 golf courses, (and a partridge in a pear tree). Oh, and more than 16,500 managed acres of Environmentally Endangered Lands all call Florida’s Space Coast home.
The Space Coast is a short drive to Orlando attractions such as Walt Disney World® and Universal Studios Florida™. Plus, local attractions offer once-in-a-lifetime opportunities including zip-lining over alligators at Brevard Zoo and being only a few feet away from an actual Space Shuttle at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Plus, much, much more.
Perfectly located in Central Florida – the Space Coast is the ideal launching point for more than just rockets. Take off for the perfect staycation, whether a long weekend almost anywhere in the state, or the ultimate staycation, launching from Port Canaveral with Carnival Cruise Line®, Norwegian Cruise Line®, Royal Caribbean® Cruises, or Disney Cruise Line®.
