Explore Brevard County Florida

 

Brevard County is located on the east coast of Central Florida just 35 miles east of Orlando, and home to such businesses as Harris, GE, NASA and the Kennedy Space Center, the only facility in the world that launched the Space Shuttle; Port Canaveral, the second-busiest cruise port in the world; 72 miles of beautiful Atlantic Ocean beaches; and the largest collection of endangered wildlife and plants in the continental United States.  With its tropical weather, cultural activities, educational opportunities, active and passive recreation options, high-technology industries, and family-friendly atmosphere, the Space Coast offers an exceptional quality of life that residents and visitors enjoy year-round.  With a small town feel and catering to the Florida lifestyle it’s no wonder more than 500,000 people call its16 municipalities and unincorporated areas “home.”

With over 72 miles of coastline, it’s incredibly diverse from north to south and has an adventure for every visitor. As you discover what makes up Florida’s Space Coast, you will learn that it is so much more than the place for space. So, whether you’re planning a romantic getaway for two, a family vacation, or a cruise from Port Canaveral, we invite you to find your space, plant your beach chair and breathe in the ocean air.
