Kissimmee Vacation Rentals: Top 3 Space Coast Beach Day Trips
Before Disney, Florida’s best-known attraction was its miles and miles of beautiful beaches. If you’re trying to figure out how to enjoy those beaches and still spend time at the theme parks, you can do it by headquartering at one of our Kissimmee vacation rentals.
Florida’s Space Coast is an easy drive from Fantasy World Resort. You’ll find plenty of restaurants, shopping, entertainment and, of course, beaches to enjoy. The Space Coast offers a wide range of fishing and boating excursions, with some of the best bass fishing in Florida. You can catch your dinner and return to our spacious Kissimmee vacation rentals to cook and enjoy it.
Some day trip destinations you’ll want to consider include:
- Cocoa Beach. Voted one of the ten best beach towns in Florida by USA Today, this world-famous beach experience offers surfing, boogie boarding, jogging, cycling, sunbathing, sandcastle building, wading and swimming – and the icon of surf and beach lifestyle: Ron Jon Surf Shop . Check out the Cocoa Beach Pier, which is home to five restaurants, four bars, shops and entertainment. Or browse through the historic Cocoa Village, with its charming atmosphere, quaint shops and delightful restaurants.
- Kennedy Space Center. At the home of the American space journey, you’ll see where it all began. Experience one of the most realistic spaceflight simulators in the world, see historic space vehicles (rockets, the lunar rover, Space Shuttle Atlantis and others), meet astronauts in person and more.
- Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. This national park is home to more threatened and endangered species than any other refuge in the continental United States, including the Florida manatee, bald eagle, wood stork, gopher tortoise, eastern indigo snake and more than 330 recorded bird species. The seven-mile Black Point Wildlife Drive lets you enjoy the stunning landscape and wildlife from the comfort of your own vehicle, or you can hike or paddle.
