FireworksIndependence Day is quickly approaching! If you plan to be in Port Canaveral, Florida over your 4th of July weekend, here are some tips for making the most out of your holiday.

Beach Cookout

Visitors and locals alike enjoy a day at the beach. We recommend you check out Jetty Park, which has places for you to play in the water, relax, cook out, walk the pier, or build a sandcastle. You could even reserve a campsite to stay the night. If you want to do a seafood spread, consider stopping at the Wild Ocean Seafood Market for fresh Florida shrimp or other Cape delicacies.

Coastal Tour

If a nice, long drive sounds ideal or you’re more of a “go and explore” traveler, consider getting a minivan rental and cruising the coastal waterways. You and your family or friends can pile in and just drive. Then, if you see a beach or attraction that fits your interests, park your rental and enjoy your Port Canaveral holiday at your own pace. Contact us at Carl’s Van Rentals today either online or by calling 1-800-565-5211 so we can get you set up with your van rental of choice.

Fireworks by Boat

Many locations around the Port Canaveral area offer a unique “Fireworks by Boat” experience. You can check out Florida by Water’s online directory of nearby Port Canaveral locations to cruise and watch the fireworks.

Casino Cruise

If you want to try your hand at Blackjack or enjoy some competitive BINGO, Victory Casino Cruises offers a 4th of July evening cruise. The cruise ship also offers several dining options, from contemporary sit-down to drinks and dancing at Big Norm’s Club V. You will want to book your Port Canaveral casino cruise early to reserve your spot.
