QUESTION: We are bring our kids and making a whole week of vacation, half here and the other half at Disney. Is there anything special we need to bring. What is a typical day like in Cocoa Beach? ANSWER: Everything is so nice in this beachtown and a summer day is all about the beach life, waves, shopping, seafood, and the happy hours. This is a relaxing town that is not that big, so you will want to rent bicycles if your hotel does not offer them. Surfing is huge, but the body board does it right too. We love to stay near the beach.
It is easy to rent bicycles from Beachside Cycle and Surf? at 7004 North Atlantic Avenue. The fat tire beach bikes are what you want as the sand can be soft in some parts of the beach. There you can also rent Surfboards and Mopeds.
Our vacation condo was really nice at Ocean Landings. The area is great and you have lots to do close by: golf courses, kayak trails, Beach Shops, eco nature tours, and and the watersports along the beach. Take at least one day out and go to Orlando for Epcot and Islands of Adventure. Cocoa is nicer than Daytona.
