Titusville to Palm Bay:

Florida's Space Coast

A stretch of sun-bronzed Atlantic shore that spreads for 116 kilometers, which has space attractions and protected wildlife refuges flourishing along the surf. Florida's Space Coast, which is located only 45 minutes from Orlando, is made up mainly of area cities; Titusville, Cocoa Beach, Melbourne and Palm Bay. Earthly preservation and space exploration harmonize from dune walks to moon walks to fascinate every age and attitude.

For a game of volleyball, live music, and bike riding along the coast, head to Cocoa Beach and its famous 800-foot wooden pier lined with restaurants, shops and fisherman reeling in the catch of the day. The temperature remains a constant 23 degrees Celsius all year round, so you don't have to worry about it becoming too cold.
