If you’re looking for an exciting, new place to visit for your winter vacation, skip the crowds at Disney or Miami’s beaches. Instead, strike out to the Port Canaveral area to explore Florida’s Space Coast. Located just minutes away from our Carl’s Van Rentals location, this unique area is known for a number of out-of-this-world attractions and activities you can’t find anywhere else. 

Visit Kennedy Space Center in Florida

Kennedy Space Center

You’ll never forget the rush of seeing a rocket launched into space. Port Canaveral is home to the Kennedy Space Center, where many spacecraft are launched each year. Try to time your trip to catch a launch, but if you can’t, the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers visitors a wide range of space-related exhibits and activities that people of all ages will enjoy. 

Sands Space History Center

Looking for a low-cost activity that will add great value to your trip? Check out Sands Space History Center, a free museum managed by Air Force Space and Missile Museum. It’s a small museum staffed by volunteers who go the extra mile to explain the exhibits and teach visitors about the history of space travel. 

Cocoa Beach

No trip to Florida is complete without a trip to the beach! The Space Coast also includes opportunities for some great beach fun just down the road at Cocoa Beach. Your crew can grab the beach gear, pile into your minivan rental, and be at Cocoa Beach to relax in the waves in no time at all.
