Things to Do in Cocoa Beach: The Exploration Tower and Beyond

Cocoa Beach may be on the ocean, but it’s far from a sleepy seaside town! Our nook of Florida is home to thrills on land, sea, and sky—a fact that you’ll see the moment you arrive.

Below, we’re sharing some of Cocoa Beach’s best activities. Let’s get started!

Start with a helicopter tour

Looking for a unique way to get a lay of the land at the start of your trip? Don’t stick the roads—shift your perspective and take to the skies in a personal helicopter tour for you and your family!

A helicopter tour is a natural first stop on your excursion, since it will give you the unique opportunity to see the beaches, parks and buildings Cocoa has to offer from an unbeatable vantage point.

Never been up in a helicopter before? Even better—you get to experience the novelty and thrill of those aerial views for the first time! You’ll be able to see cruise ships, surfers, beautiful blue waters and stretches of Cocoa Beach’s pristine coastline. That change in perspective is fun, and presents a meaningful way for you to add some flair to your beach vacation. You’ll be happy to know that we love seeing the sights just as much as you will—it’s why we do what we do!

Get to know the Exploration Tower

Once you’ve experienced Cocoa Beach from above, you’re just a walk away from another exciting spot, the Exploration Tower!  As its name would suggest, this Port Canaveral destination is for those families who love to learn something new on every vacation. Once they’ve seen it from the sky, kids and adults alike will enjoy exploring the seven-story marvel, a uniquely-designed structure whose trademark curved shape can be identified from just about anywhere. It’s a great place to learn about the state of Florida and the natural world around us.

Experience the world-famous beach

Cocoa Beach is a premier travel spot thanks, in large part, to its beautiful coastline. Get your feet wet and experience it for yourself! Lori Wilson Park is a great place to start, since it offers rolling dunes, steady waves, and access to oceanfront treats like shops and dining to enjoy. You can even stroll through the park’s nature trail and be surrounded by vivid greenery and a serene atmosphere. 

Get your surf on

It’s no secret that Cocoa Beach is a popular spot amongst surfers, too! If you love to surf or simply want to learn more about the sport, visit the famous Ron Jon Surf Shop and Florida Surf Museum while you’re here. Once you take to the water, you’ll find that the waves are just as enchanting up close as they are from above—just with a few more splashes!

Your Cocoa Beach vacation is sure to be filled with fun and family memories that will last long after you leave. We look forward to being a part of your adventure!
