Cape Canaveral

Cape Canaveral — An old-fashioned stretch of Florida oceanfront roughly an hour east of Orlando, Cape Canaveral went high-tech when NASA set up shop, earning the region the title “Space Coast.” A major departure point for all major cruise lines, this little slice of the sunshine state boasts wide, relatively empty beaches and plenty of family-friendly attractions to keep you occupied before hitting the high seas.

Why Go

For the Kennedy Space Center, surfing, sunbathing, and a possible jumping off point for the cruise of a lifetime.
