|Your host on a "virtual visit" to a rather unique corner of the world — Titusville Florida - Space City USA.||
Few experiences anywhere can match the ground shaking spectacle of a space bound rocket thundering off its launch pad across the Indian River Lagoon on its way to earth orbit or the stars. Unless, you are a person who is awed by the beauty of a flock of 100 endangered Wood Storks circling overhead in search of quiet feeding grounds.
Then again, you might just enjoy both. We here in Titusville do. While these are not everyday occurrences, they highlight adventures that are always available.
The Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex is an international visitor destination. You will never forget your first glimpse of the Saturn 5 rocket that propelled man to the moon!
140,000 acres of wilderness provides a safety zone around KSC. Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and Canaveral National Seashore protect over 500 species of wildlife (16 threatened or endangered). Your chances of coming across an alligator and a manatee are very good. It is one of the top 2 or 3 dozen birding spots in the world. And, there are over 24 miles of unspoiled Atlantic beach to enjoy.
Add to that the Astronaut Hall of Fame, American Police Hall of Fame & Museum, a Warbird (airplanes) museum, Enchanted Forest Nature Sanctuary, Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore Memorial Park, the Indian River Lagoon with some of the finest fishing in the world ("Redfish Capital of the World"), great golfing, fine local theater, and historical museums. In fact we list over 80 nearby places to go and things to do!
And, should you need more, we are within an hours drive of the Orlando attractions, Port Canaveral cruise ships, Cocoa Beach and Daytona Beach.
You'll love our local hospitality. And you can browse the menus of several of our fine restaurants. Friendly local businesses are prepared to meet just about every need.
