AAA Editor Notes
Jetty Park, 400 Jetty Rd., has a full roster of beach activities, including fishing on the pier, surfing, swimming and just plain sunbathing. Rent a bicycle and ride the bike trails or spend time watching the wildlife – there are plenty of birds and sea mammals like manatees and dolphins who call the park home. A playground area has swings, grills and picnic tables, while an enclosed pavilion has an observation deck on its second story.
Watch the cruise ships come in at Port Canaveral; it's also the prime spot to watch rockets shoot into space from Kennedy Space Center.
