We’ve all been there.
The trip is all set, but things aren’t fitting together quite as smoothly as one might like. Between this, that and the other thing with connecting flights, drive time to and from the airport and all sorts of life’s little hurdles, you’re left with hours — sometimes a full day — between getting to Florida and the departure time for that dream cruise.
Don’t stress out or hole up in a boring hotel room. Instead, enjoy the best of what Cape Canaveral and the surrounding area has to offer. This is vacation! You’re supposed to have fun! Start now and do it in style.
Port Canaveral is one of my favorite cruise ports. Not only is it convenient for me to get to, but it also has quite a few nearby attractions and things to do.
Ron Jon’s Surf Shop in Cocoa Beach - I have been to this iconic store and have the t-shirt to prove it. In addition, Cocoa Beach has some of the best beaches.
Victory Casino Cruises - 5 hour gambling cruises that will even appeal to non gamblers.
Fishlips Waterfront Bar and Grill - One of the best places for dinner in the area before your cruise.
Florida Beer Company - Craft brewing is very big in Florida and the Florida Beer Company is one of the biggest and best. The brewery tour sounds like it would be very interesting.
Kennedy Space Center - This is one of my favorite places to go when I am on the east coast of Florida. Everyone should spend a day here. There is a lot to do and see.
