|A Florida vacation wouldn't be complete without a trip to the
beach. The Space Coast lays claim to some of the finest beaches
in Florida, attracting families, newlyweds, and the older set alike.
Soft brown sand leading to inviting warm water allows the visitor
to feel they are truly in paradise. Whether you're looking for great
surfing, abundant fishing or a romantic private retreat, nothing
can equal a day along the Space Coast's beautiful shoreline.
|Swimming, fishing, sunbathing and shelling are only a few of the
great activities to be enjoyed at the beaches. Children will have
endless fun with a bag of inexpensive sand toys, and it gives parents
a chance to sit back and relax as the youngsters amuse themselves.
While some beaches have refreshments within walking distance, a
cooler of drinks can be more convenient. And always remember the
sunscreen; the Florida sun can be intense, even during the winter

Canaveral National Seashore the perfect beach. Stretching 25 miles
along Florida's Space Coast, and a favorite of vacationing families,

the area and the longest stretch of natural beach on the East Coast
of Florida. Far less crowded than nearby Indialantic and Cocoa Beaches,
quiet and solitude are easy to come by and the greatest pleasure
can be had walking along the surf line
