In the rush to get summer vacation in before work and school duties once again get busy, ensuring children have ample fun and excitement isn’t always easy. We schedule vacations that are enjoyable but could probably be better.
While kids can generally make the most of any vacation situation, there are some unique events they’ll always keep in mind. Traveling to a favorite theme park, staying in a luxury resort, getting a new perspective from exciting helicopter rides, and other ideas create lasting memories they’ll want to recount to friends over and again.
Here’s how to give kids and youth holiday experiences they’ll never forget:
Experience Florida Nature
Of all the unique and innovative things to do in Cocoa Beach, visiting the ocean remains of the most popular. Known for a more laid-back and family-friendly feel than other Central Florida beaches, this area is ideal for spending hours soaking up the sun, swimming, and just relaxing by the waves.
In addition, Brevard County has many outdoor camping options. Here, youth can get up close and personal with native wildlife. Smaller children might prefer experiencing nature from the comfort of a tour boat or even viewing safely by the water’s edge.
Explore Other Attractions
While theme parks have their place, some older children might be “over” the experience. Others may crave a different outlet for this vacation. Thankfully, there’s always something fun and exciting happening in Brevard County. That might be why Prevention Magazine listed the Space Coast as one of the top ten vacation spots for people with children.
Kids will marvel at authentic spacecraft at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral. The Brevard Zoo in Melbourne features guided kayak tours and zip line adventures not offered at other venues.
In addition, Port Canaveral is a hub for cruise ships. Whether or not you plan a cruise, you can still gather the family to watch these massive vessels dock and shove off from the shore.
Take to the Air
Some people choose to view and take in all the action from the safety and comfort of a seat high up in the sky. Increasing in popularity, helicopter tours are a great way to gain a new perspective and see the entire surrounding area.
Safe and affordable, our aircraft undergo regular, comprehensive inspection by on-site and full-time maintenance staff. All our pilots are FAA-certified and drug-free.
