Florida’s magnificent region, commonly known as the Space Coast, provides the perfect scenery for romantic, get-away dates—day or night. No matter what season of the year you’re planning your special rendezvous, Florida’s countless premier attractions, eateries and beaches give couples a unique opportunity to explore the Space Coast of northeast Florida.
To the Northeast: Old World St. Augustine
Beginning with the oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement within the U.S., this Spanish colonial city was founded in 1565. With its famous old-world antique cobblestone streets, colonial buildings and magnificent gardens, it lies just a few miles north of other Florida premier attractions: the Kennedy Space Center and the Cape Canaveral Launch Center.
Proudly playing host to over 30 major premier attractions, including Old St. Augustine, the old Fort San Marcos and Ponce de Leon’s legendary site for the Fountain of Youth, this is one jewel of a destination you will not want to miss.
Whether tourists decide to walk or take a tram ride, visitors find a good selection of various modes of transportation available—from a horse-drawn buggy to motorized trolley cars.
To the Southeast: The Space Coast in Brevard County
No doubt named after the Kennedy Space Center, this area presents excellent shopping opportunities for a romantic day or night on the town. Easily within driving distance from the Space Center are cities such as Titusville and Cocoa Beach. They lie just to its southeast and make up what is commonly known as the Space Coast.
Expansive malls, fine dining, outdoor cafes and quaint old city streets add to the popular appeal of these areas. Naturally, an air-conditioned bus tour within the Kennedy Space Center is the perfect way to end a very special day.
Further Southeast: The City of Melbourne
Melbourne’s distinguished and fun-filled zoo, the Brevard Zoo, hosts over 500 animals and features a number of highly-rated attractions as well. With its pristine and less-traveled beaches, Melbourne also offers superb pier-front shopping experiences known all over Florida.
If you’re a museum lover, then Melbourne is the place for you. Check out these two well-known museums open daily for your enjoyment: the Liberty Bell Memorial Museum and Rossetter House Museum.
