Central East Florida, the beautiful ‘Space Coast’, is known for three reasons: fabulous beaches, space shuttles and race cars in Daytona. However, there is more to be experienced in the area from a Central East Florida holiday home or rental villa, especially the fishing (deep sea, lagoon and river) and shopping. Although, the beaches are world class, and easily enough to persuade most people to rent a Florida holiday villa!
Cocoa Beach, the ultimate beach town, has a superb, endless powdery beach, and great facilities for deep sea fishing, golf and shopping as well as the opportunity to take a cruise to see a shuttle lift off! The casual beach atmosphere creates a perfect place to relax in the evening, drifting between bars restaurants and cafés.
Vero Beach is also an idyllic beach town, offering exceptional golf, and is one of the best emerging beach resorts in Florida, and ranks at number 1 of “best small town in Florida”. A must-see location in your Florida holidays.
Daytona Beach is not just the home of NASCAR, but a fascinating historic town, filled with churches, museums and galleries.
The Daytona International Speedway is a unique interactive motorsport centre, with not only NASCAR, but a high energy hands on attraction. Other activity centres are JUNGLE Adventures, Brevard Zoo and the Ace of hearts Ranch, so there is plenty to entertain children if you have taken a Florida holiday home for a family holiday.
Port Canaveral is a huge cruise port offering a multitude of cruises, fishing, gaming, shopping and beaches.
There are of course many space orientated centres. The Kennedy Space Centre visitor complex and Astronaut Hall of Fame offer a magnificent insight into the complex world of space travel, and is well worth a trip from any Florida villa.
If you are looking to play golf in Florida, Cape Canaveral hosts the regions best course, although there are also great courses at Cocoa Beach, and the historic towns of Fort Pierce and Melbourne, whose timeless atmospheres reward anyone taking a Central East Florida holiday cottage there.
The weather in Florida has always been one of the states finest assets. Summers are long and hot, and winters are mild, so taking a Central East Florida holiday rental is great for any time of year, with temperatures in the summer around 30°C, and winters still around 15°C at the lowest.
Miami (MIA), Orlando (MCO), Tampa (TPA) or Fort Myers (RSW) in Southwest Florida are the closest airport to Central East Florida holiday homes, so there are many options for cheap flights to Florida.
